KARNATAKA STATE BAR COUNCIL, OLD K.G.I.D.BLDG., BANGALORE

PREAMBLE



The Legal profession has been considered as a noble profession and advocates play prominent role in the Society. It is for the Advocates to act as a role model for the general public. It is significant to note that most of the freedom fighters were Members of the legal profession. Unlike other professions, the advocates have always played an important role in public Life and in upholding the moral standards. The leaders of Bar will have to necessarily project the high standards of the profession.

It is the matter of concern that in recent days there has been deterioration in professional ethics and moral standards. This deteriorating trend is reflected in the procedure that is followed by the Bar Associations to choose their leaders. For want of proper leadership, the growth of the Bar Association has stunted. It has come to the notice of the Council that the elections to various Bar Associations are influenced by irrelevant considerations. Similar deterioration has also seeped to the elections held to the Bar Council. Therefore, it is a matter of imperative need concern that the manner and mode of elections to the Bar Associations should be revamped forthwith. Advocates practicing in one place are getting Membership of another Association with the intention of voting for a particular candidate. Such Membership is obtained at the instance of the contesting candidate. This has resulted in a situation where the office bearers of the Bar Association do not really reflect the aspiration of its Members.

It has come to the notice of the Council that different types of bye laws are in existence in respect of different Bar Associations. This has posed an in adherence to the unity and integrity of the State Bar. Sec. 2 (b) of the Karnataka Advocates Welfare Fund Act, 1983 defines Bar Association as "An Association of advocates recognized by the Bar Council under Sec. 13". Sec 13 of the Act provides for recognition of the Association. The concerned Association should produce the bye laws of their Association along with the application seeking for recognition. On grant of such recognition, a Certificate of Registration will be issued by the Bar Council. It is now proposed to amend Bye law 3 of the Karnataka Advocates Welfare Fund Bye laws which clearly specifies that the Association should be registered in accordance with the Bye laws. In this regard, the model bye laws will be provided as part of the Bye laws itself. If the model bye laws is not adopted by the Association it would deprive the Members of the concerned Association from taking the advantage of the welfare measures provided by the Bar Council. It is the duty of the Council to promote the growth of the Bar Association and effectively implement the Welfare Scheme. The proposed model bye laws will serve as an effective Bye law for growth and the development of the Bar.
