Lady Lawyers

When I started law practice in the Allahabad High Court in 1970 there was only one lady lawyer coming regularly to the High Court. Sometimes a new young lady lawyer was seen, but after a few months she disappeared. It transpired that she had been coming to the High Court only to while away time till she got married.

A lawyers profession was regarded earlier as unfit for ladies as it was regarded rough and tough , and therefore only fit for males.

Today there would be about 500 lady lawyers coming regularly to the Allahabad High Court. This is no doubt only about 5% of the total number of lawyers in the High Court, but 5% is better than 0%. In Madras High Court, where I went as Chief Justice there would be about 600 lady lawyers, and the same would be the approximate number in Delhi High Court and the Supreme Court, where I was Chief Justice and puisne Judge. 

For ladies no doubt it is not easy to be a lawyer, as she has also to look after her family and home. But to the credit of lady lawyers they are bravely doing their job both of running a law practice, and looking after their families and home.

When I became Acting Chief Justice of Allahabad High Court some lady lawyers came to me and said that they had no place to sit ( in between case hearings), and there was no toilet for ladies. I allotted two big halls for lady lawyers, with wash rooms, toilets, kitchen, furniture, etc and got it air conditioned. It was named the Cornelia Sorabji Hall, after the first lady lawyer in India, Cornelia Sorabji ( 1866-1954 ) who was admitted as a lawyer in the Allahabad High Court in 1924 when the bar on lady lawyers to practice in India was lifted

When I went to Madras High Court as the Chief Justice I allotted some rooms in the High Court premises to serve as a creche, where young married ladies ( lawyers and registry officials ) could leave their children when they came to the High Court, and could take them back home when their work was over. A creche is a modern concept, for keeping children between 1-3 years, while the mother was working. The children are taken care of there by a staff, and given opportunities to learn while they play.

  8. Sir, you will glad to know that from 2013 Banasthali Vidyapith has started five year integrated Law Program (B.A. LL. B./ B.B.A. LL.B./ B.com. LL.B.) exclusively for girl students. We have at present about 300 such students who are aspiring to become lawyers, Judges, Law academicians etc. We may require additional facilities in almost all the courts in India.
