About Indian Legal System

According, to the fundamental right to constitutional remedies, our Indian constitutions provides us the ability to move to court for any of our fundamental rights being violated.

Also when a person is arrested under ordinary circumstances, he has the right to be presented before the nearest court within 24 hours of his arrest to decide upon, clarify and settle any disputes regaring the crime committed, and the person can present his aspect and what he has to say before the judiciary present there. But since our voluminous and complex constitution might not be understandable by everybody and hence they might not be able to explain their part well before the court. For this purpose our consitution allows the person under consideration to appoint a Legal Practitioner to represent him and lay down his terms and perspectives before the court.

A Legal practitioners whom we better know as an Advocate, is one who has obtained a Bachelors of Law (LL.B.) degree and is listed in the Bar Council in any State in India. On getting enrolled in a Bar Council, he can practice in any court present in any location within India, except the highest jucial authority, i.e., the Supreme Court where, one has to take a separate admission examination.

Advocates generally practise individually taking up cases or may prefer to become a part of a legal firm where many likes of such legal practitioners come under one roof to exchange their valuable legal knowledge and provide solutions to may law related problems. Under India's Companies Act, 1956, a partnership in India cannot have more than twenty partners. Hence in India, law firms are not very large in size and mostly are small-sized family firms having a few partners.  Thus, the abilities and time constraints of an individual lawyer should be generally taken into consideration than the size of the firm. Mishra and Mishra Advocates is one such legal firm comprised of a group of legal practitioners.

English is the official language in India, and all legal contracts are drafted in English.  However, in smaller towns, contracts and court proceedings are drafted and conducted in the regional language.
