Any person what to say of law graduate, can file his own case before any court of law in India subject to permission of concerned court.

 

Writ through e-mail cannot be filed in India.

Sir, You can defend your own case. But the chances for a party to succed are very less. The court procedures are not known to the party in person. It is better to have an advocate.

If you are thinking of filling and defending your own case you can do that but please ensure that you are through in Law. This is Battle Field is different then what you would have experienced but yes you can do that.

Writ Petitions cannot be filed by email howver some high courts are having e filling. In Supreme court you can file your petition using E filling.

As per the constitution of India any person can file and argue his own cases in any court in India. You have to appear as party in person and file the paperwork as per that. For e filing kindly see the responses above.

Anybody can fight his own case as party in person but there is no substitute for the experience of an advocate. Experience teaches lot many things like what kind of game is being played by the opposite party, what are possible surprises and the quirks of judges in court.

TRUE JUSTICE CAN BE ACHIEVED ONLY WHEN THE AGGRIEVED REPRESENTS THE CASE WITH DUE RESPECT TO THE COURTS OF JUDICIARY.  A NON-LLB SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO REPRESENT HIS OWN CASE.  WHAT IS THE CERTAINITY THAT THE MAN/WOMAN IN ADVOCATES ROBE IS A QUALIFIED ADVOCATE SINCE IN PUBLIC SERVICE THEY DONT CARRY A NAME PLATE. EXPERIENCED CLERK OF ADVOCATE MAY BE ALSO REPRESENTING. WHAT IS THE CHECK?

Court - Process and Procedures are not let known to the general public ( to their citizen ) but kept as a secret without transparency which is also one of the reason for the delay in courts for the piling up of the cases.Whereas, in public services eg. Banks, Post Offices, State City Corpns for civic services, State Registration Offices, Electricity Boards,  etc. the same is displayed  in the respective premises of the processes, charges and of the time taken etc.  Experience teaches us all of many practical nuances which one should dhare to better the situation of tomorrow. Hence, I earnestly feel that the learned and enlightened people by this in humn society, should also know of the LAW PROCESS and PROCEDURAL METHODS atleast during this surge of scientific, technical, managerial, administrative, innovative world.  More particularly when Right to Information Act 2005, is in vogue. Why this unwanted monopoly within the judiciary, when we could share our rich experiences of allied discipline. The present situation puts the general people in dark on this subject of law and hence makes no headway in this area of Law, for standardisation of the right and good Policies, forms and Procedures etc. Hight time RESEARCH is introduced in the LAW DISCIPLINE,  parallel studies of MBA in Law by Indian Universities while MBA STUDIES in Finance, Marketing, Human Resources, Shipping and Logistics etc prevail in the country.

Any person first wishes to have a well qualified and experienced advocate. but now a days some of these advocates are cheating their clients for money and matters which they are receiving from the opponent.

I had a friends case where in the advocate got a handful from opponent. he said he is taking care of the case and respondent need not attend the case. finally judgement came on merit under order XVII rule 2 of CPC stating that neither the respondent nor the her counsel attended the court. She came to know only after getting the judgement order.

I have also asked for assistance in another query for the same case.

when educated are facing these problems what about illiterate poor people.

Please excuse me i am not talking of the whole community but only talking of some. There are many sincere helpful lawyer due to whom we won many cases of poor people. Hats off to them
