Faridabad Bar Association bars outside advocates from appearing in courts without local lawyers

The Faridabad District Bar Association recently passed a resolution that bars all out station advocates from appearing before any court sans local counsel.

The resolution stated that the advocates appearing from out stations were causing inconvenience to the members of the Faridabad District Bar, as the matters go uninformed and was affecting work of both the court and the local lawyers.

“It has been observed by the executive members that advocates appearing from out stations without local counsel cause inconvenience to members of the District Bar Association Faridabad as the matters go uninformed and the same also results in loss of work to our fellow advocates,” the resolution reads.

Thus, the association resolved that “advocates from out stations will not be allowed to appear before any court of law unless accompanied by local counsel”.

Lawyers from other districts have criticized the move, claiming it would impact the functioning of lawyers appearing from other parts of the state or the country.

However, the Association’s secretary Joginder Narwat has explained that the need for such a resolution saying, “The resolution will help ease the work of the court. Out station advocates seek longer dates because of their travel and other commitments, but if they are accompanied by a local lawyer, the case can proceed at a faster pace and the local lawyer can appear on dates on which the out station lawyer cannot appear".
