Lawyers’ Union calls for protests this month

The All India Lawyers’ Union (AILU) is gearing up for protests later this month against the alleged delay in solving the problems faced by advocates, which require the urgent attention of the Central and the State governments.

Addressing mediapersons here on Friday, AILU State president S. Rajendra Prasad and secretary N. Srinivasa Rao said the union was mainly demanding the provision of stipend (₹5,000) facility to all advocates up to five years from their enrolment and sanction of health cards to all those enrolled as members of the A.P. Bar Council, and house sites to the needy ones and filling of the large number of vacancies in courts on a regular basis.

It was also seeking the frequent transfer of judges to prevent favouritism and cropping up of Uncle Judges issues.

Besides, the AILU was demanding an increase in the judge strength in A.P. High Court to 100, proper infrastructure at court campuses, financial support for the construction of advocate association halls, the establishment of a law academy to train the advocates for enriching their legal knowledge.
