Advocates have never had a straightforward career. While getting a degree seems to be a challenging task, an advocate only knows the true hardships of this profession once they have enrolled. Litigators and their families often face harassment from their clients as well as opposition parties. They are badgered by their clients for not ‘winning’ their case, and they are also troubled by the opposition parties who want to stop them from moving forward with the case. On paper, this matter seems trivial, but as we delve into particular instances, it comes to light that advocates do face grave danger on a day-to-day basis. It is for this the Advocates (Protection) Bill, 2021 was proposed. This bill has not been brought into effect yet (As of 13th October 2021) and this paper aims to discuss the possible benefits it will have on society.
