Advocate on Record,
Supreme Court of India

When I was in college, once P. A. Inamdar had been invited to speak.

He told us based on his personal experience as a client as to how getting notice issued in an SLP was such a big deal - that is why senior advocates charge so much for the first hearing, caled the ‘admissions’ hearing. The agenda is to get the matter admitted and a notice issued to the other side.

He shared with us how he had been to Mr. Harish Salve once to get advice on whether he should file an SLP or not. Mr. Salve had heard the issue only for as much time as it took him to bite an apple and he just said the word, ‘No’. He meant filing an SLP would not be of any use in the matter.

He could charge a substantial fee for merely a few seconds of argument because he was ‘Harish Salve’.

Sitting there, I wondered what it must be like to practice in the Supreme Court.

However, I had nobody to tell me how easy or difficult it was and what it would take to build up a practice there.

Now, after carving my own path and practising in the Supreme Court for seven years and having seen different trajectories of lawyers practising there, I know what it takes to do it.

Many young lawyers practising in other courts often ask me several questions relating to Supreme Court practice. I see a gleam of hope in their eyes when they hear me talking about it.

I have also met many lawyers who have a fairly successful practice in the district courts or high court, but they think that being a Supreme Court lawyer is quite difficult.

It is possible for a newcomer, even a fresh graduate, to work towards building an independent practice in the Supreme Court.

This workshop is meant to break all such myths and notions and provide you with possible pathways you could explore if you want to build a practice at the Supreme Court as a young lawyer.

We will take you through the different routes you can follow to develop a Supreme Court practice based on how lawyers like you have done in the past

This workshop will give you an opportunity to ask us any questions or discuss any beliefs you have about Supreme Court practice as well
