I am practicing at Daman Court.
I have a question about which the Civil manual is silent.
I have a Lawyer's clerk duly appointed by the district court as per the chapter XXXII paragraph 633 of Civil Manual (Maharashtra State).
My clerk is attending the court and sitting in the raw which is meant for advocate. Some senior Lawyers have objection to his sitting there. But the manual is silent about the duty/obligations/limitations and function of the Lawyer's clerk. Even about sitting.
So I want to know from you, where he should seat? whether he can submit the application to the court in absent of lawyer? Is he allowed to inspect the file/record as Lawyer is?
