Young lawyers graduating from college after completing their law studies must first pass a national-level bar examination to obtain a permanent registration certificate with the Bar Council. After that, they have to train for 2 or 3 years as a junior lawyer, a senior lawyer.
Students studying law from rural and impoverished families need at least 3 or 4 years to complete their law studies and become lawyers.
During this time many lawyers are in a state of extreme poverty and some are unable to establish themselves as lawyers and move to other professions. The Government of Tamil Nadu has implemented a special scheme to help young lawyers who are currently living in poverty.
Accordingly, it is planned to provide a stipend of Rs. 3,000 per month for young lawyers for a period of 2 years. The project was launched by Chief Minister Edappadi Palanisamy at the General Secretariat. Only lawyers under the age of 30 who have studied in government law colleges are eligible for funding.
