Delhi High Court directs enrolment of a Korean national as an Advocate in India

The Delhi High Court, in a petition seeking the enrolment of a Korean national, who obtained law degree from an Indian institution, in the Bar Council of Delhi (BCD), directed the Bar Council of India to allow the application for enrolment with the BCD. The enrolment was allowed in view of Section 24 of the Advocates Act, 1961 which allows nationals of other country to be enrolled as advocates if the duly qualified Indian citizens are permitted to practice law in that other country.
