The Supreme Court of India has invited online applications from Senior advocates, Advocates-on-Record and lawyers who are members of the Supreme Court Bar Association for allotment of lawyers chambers.
The notice, which was issued yesterday by the Court, also prescribes the eligibility criteria for the same.
Senior Advocates should have at least 50 appearances for any two consecutive years between June 2011 and June 2016.
For AoRs, the qualification is 20 filings (or appearance on behalf of respondents) per year for two consecutive years between June 2011 and June 2016. However, the filings should be for admission or regular matters and not IAs, CrMPs or Government filings.
For those lawyers who are not AoRs but are members of the SCBA, the threshold is 50 appearances for any two consecutive years between June 2011 and June 2016.
The online link for filling up the applications will be enabled today and the last date for submitting the application is February 28, 2018.
