Indian Bar Council lifts web ad restrictions

The Bar Council of India has lifted restrictions on law firm websites, allowing Indian lawyers to launch their own websites giving basic information about themselves to prospective clients. The decision comes after local lawyer VB Joshi filed a petition in 2000 challenging the Bar Council’s Rule 36, which bans lawyers in India from any type of advertising or soliciting for new clients.
