Bar Council Of Delhi – Law Of The Land
If one had to simply define Law it could be said that it is a system of rules and guidelines which are imposed through social institutions to govern behavior, wherever possible. It shapes politics, economics and society in numerous ways and serves as a social mediator of relations between people.
In short Law keeps the order in the society. Laws have been around since a long time. In India we have had laws since the time of the Vedas. In fact these scriptures are full of laws. Most rulers of India too had proper court proceedings to carry out the law of the land. In fact excellent secular court systems existed under the Mauryas (321-185 BCE) and the Mughals (16th 19th centuries) with the latter giving way to the current common law system. The current law system is regulated by the Bar council of India, it was established by Parliament under the Advocates Act, 1961. Every state has a State Bar Council which assists the Indian Bar Council. One of these State Bar Councils is the Bar Council of Delhi.
The Bar Council of Delhi is located in Siri Fort Road in Delhi, and is run under the strong management of Shri Nitin Ahlawat, the Secretary of the Delhi Bar Council. In accordance to the rules set by the Parliament under the Advocates Act of 1961, every law graduate has to be registered with the Indian Bar Council. The enrollment formalities are carried out by the state bar council. The Delhi Bar Council also enrolls many law graduates every year. Only if the law graduate is registered with the Delhi Bar Council or any other State Bar Council, is he/she considered to be an advocate. Only then can he or she practice law in any court of the country. Recently, the All India Bar Examination was started by the Government to test all law graduates.
The graduate is entitled to practice law in the country only if he passes this examination. The Delhi Bar Council also conducts All India Bar Examinations and also registers graduates for the same. Bar Association of Delhi offers legal services to the people. If you have a dispute you want settled you can approach a lawyer at the Delhi Bar Council.
