VC of NLUs to support Law Teacher to practice in Court

The competition in field of law, particularly in litigation, is entirely at different level. Where most of the talented practitioners don’t get high pocket client, those with less talent but with good source manage to get the order from the court for which they are being paid. High corruption in judiciary is a problem that needs to be addressed.


The consortium of National Law Universities headed by NALSAR Hyderabad VC Prof. Faizan Mustafa, said that law teachers should primarily act pro bono in worthy and important human rights and constitution type cases. But, if law teachers were to make money in any future legal practice, 60% of teachers earned fees should go to their employees universities, according to their proposal.


This step of Prof. Faizan Mustafa, a genuine and knowledgeable group will be introduced in the practice which will certainly be good for those seeking legal help.


However, currently Rule 49 of the Bar Council of India (BCI) Rules bans full-time salaried employees, such as professor, Doctor, Director of Company etc to practise.
