Bar Council ties up with young lawyers' body

delhi Updated: Jun 02, 2010 00:53 IST

The Bar Council of India, the apex disciplinary body for lawyers, has tied up with Rainmaker, an organization started by young lawyers to revamp its internal systems and infrastructure. The association is aimed to improve the standards of the legal profession in the country.

Rainmaker will also assist the council to create a database of lawyers across India and work out a common legal admission test for law schools across the country. As part of this initiative, Rainmaker has revamped BCI’s website which will be inaugurated on Wednesday by Union Law minister Veerappa Moily.

BCI chairman and solicitor general Gopal Subramanium will present the council's vision document on what steps it will initiate to curb the mushrooming law colleges, without adequate infrastructure, in the country.

Rainmaker will work with the BCI and manage the bar exam that is proposed to be held in December this year.
