The Indian legal industry has grown exponentially over a relatively short span of time, becoming one of the largest branches of the legal profession in the world. It has become one of the most influential professions that have an active involvement in the governance of the country. This profession adequately reflects the diversity of Indian society with its social hierarchies and performs efficiently in the process of delivering justice to everyone concerned through the Courts, despite the massive pressures that Courts and legal institutions function under, given how unimaginably overburdened they always are.
The Bar Council of India is responsible for the growth and development of legal education in India and it lays down the foundation of the standards of legal education in consultation with the universities providing legal education in the country. The Bar Council gives the approvals and sets up regulatory practices for the centers of legal education. It also prescribes types and standards of the courses of study, eligibility for admission, infrastructure and course structures of the centers of legal education. The Bar Council is also responsible for making regular visits and inspections on these centers of legal education as a part of its statutory functions.
