It Is Those Lawyers Without Work Who Agitate The Most


07-April-2017

The Law Commission of India (LCI) has recommended a slew of reforms for the legal profession. These were presented as the 266th report of the LCI, led by the current chairperson of the commission, Justice (retd) Balbir Singh Chauhan, who has 20 years experience at the Bar and another 20 as a judge, including five years as a Supreme Court judge. The Bar Council of India reacted with a nationwide strike on March 31. In an interview with Ushinor Majumdar, Justice Chauhan explains the kind of reforms  suggested and why they are necessary.
