Foreign law firms set to operate in India: CJI

Foreign law firms would soon be allowed to operate from India and the Bar Council shall not be able to resist their entry, Chief Justice of India K G Balakrishnan said.
“I don’t think the Bar Council of India can continue to resist the Chief Justice said here last evening while delivering the keynote address on ‘Judicial Reforms in India’ organised by the Indo-EU Business Forum.
“I cannot give you a time-frame but this (the proposal) is being handled at the senior level and it will be done,” the Chief Justice of India said.
Law minister H R Bhardwaj had recently said that the legal fraternity in India should view the possibility of the entry of foreign law firms as an opportunity to grow and enjoy the ‘fruits of litigation’ by setting up partnership firms.

The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like). Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..", comes from a line in section 1.10.32.
