Lawyers elected as lawmakers can practice in courts

The Supreme Court on Tuesday dismissed a plea seeking to ban lawmakers from practising as advocates.

A bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra said that the Bar Council of India Rules do not prohibit legislators from practising as lawyers.

The court was hearing a PIL filed by BJP leader and advocate Ashwini Upadhyay seeking to bar lawyer-lawmakers (MPs, MLAs, MLCs) from practising in courts during their tenure in legislature.
