Validity Of the Certificate of Practice

Since the Bar Council Of India (BCI) approved the BCI Certificate of Practice for Advocates and Renewal Rules in 2014, All practicing advocates are expected to apply for Certificate of Practice issued by BCI and thereafter, it needs to be renewed every 5 years.

In Addition to this, certain criteria to perform in supreme court were added.

Importance of Certificate of Practice

The BCI Certificate of Practice for Advocates and Renewal Rules, 2014 was passed to tackle the saturation of non-practicing advocates who have left the field and/or are indulged in other business activities. Such individuals posed serious problems to the legal fraternity as they do not practice law but still claim the BCI welfare scheme.

The rules now allow the local Bar Associations to command better administrative and regulatory command over advocates. Earlier, the practicing individuals were far outnumbered by the non practicing ones.

Here’s a detailed article on how Bar Council Of India plans to discipline non-performing advocates

Who Conducts the All India Bar Examinations?

The Bar Council Of India conducts the All India Bar Examinations and regulates professional conduct of advocates in India. The rules obligates all advocates to hold a valid “Certificate Of Practice” and registration number of the Bar Association to be able to practice in court. Thereafter, every Certificate holder needs to seek a renewal every five years.

Renewal Of The Certificate of Practice.

Any advocate failing to apply for a renewal of the Certificate of Practice within the specified period from the date of expiry is presumed to have left practice and is added to the list of non-practicing lawyers. Such individuals are thereafter not certified to perform law or to vote in any Bar Association elections and are stripped of the privileges of the welfare schemes of the BCI.
