Journalists can now get accreditation without law degree (subject to CJI’s discretion)

In a significant step, the Supreme Court has revised its norms for accreditation of the legal correspondents.

The amended norms confer discretion on the Chief Justice of India to waive the condition for journalists of having a Law degree provided that they hold a Bachelor degree from a recognized University and have 5 years’ continuous experience of reporting in the Supreme Court of India.

The amended accreditation norms for journalists’ states:

“…the Hon’ble Chief Justice of India, in his discretion, in appropriate cases can waive the condition for possessing Law degree, in case a working journalist / correspondent fulfils the following condition:

He holds a Bachelor degree from a recognized University and possesses 5 years’ continuous regular Supreme Court reporting experience, in addition to the experience prescribed in the following paragraphs, as may be applicable.”

To learn more about the conditions prescribed in the amended accreditation norms, read the notification Here.
