Bombay High Court Directs Bar Council to Act Against Lawyer For Dress Code Violation

In a noteworthy ruling, the Bombay High Court has called on the Bar Council of Maharashtra and Goa to take disciplinary action against an advocate

Justice Prithviraj K Chavan highlighted the advocate’s non-compliance with the formal dress requirements, noting, “He is not in proper attire, in the sense, he is without bands and advocate’s gown as prescribed by the Rules.” The observation was made public through the court order dated June 14.

The lawyer in question, Jagdish M Ahuja, appeared in the 2018 criminal writ petition without the standard bands and gown, prompting the court’s decision. This move underscores the judiciary’s strict stance on maintaining decorum and professionalism in the courtroom.
