• Advocates Act, 1961 (25 of 1961) - Bar Council of India - University must set to itself when a request for affiliation is brought - It ought to recognize also that if the professional regulatory bodies like a Bar Council of India recommends certain courses, then it should keep pace with needs of time and exercise upon such recommendations to device syllabi for various courses and help the University to flourish through various colleges.        (177) P.L.R.
  •         Advocates Act, 1961 (25 of 1961) - Bar Council of India Rules, Chapter VII - Validity of election of a Bar Association - Bye-laws which can provide for a manner of carrying on with the activities should refer to how the respective office bearers will discharge the functions - No room for a Bar Council to decide on the validity of an election by the Bar Association - It is here that the provisions of the Advocates Act, 1961 itself obtain relevance, for the examination of the provisions would reveal whether the Bar Council can play any role in the manner of election of office bearers of a local Bar Association - In respect of the latter, the Bar Council has surely such a right by virtue of Section 15 of Advocates Act - I do not pronounce on whether the 2nd respondent's nomination ought to have been put through in the second election which was held on 20.05.2014 - I would only hold that a resort by the 2nd respondent before the Bar Council to challenge the election was incompetent and for the same reason, the decision that the Bar council has taken was legally incompetent.  (177) P.L.R.
