1. YES .... LLM can be done even while in active practice and there is no need to take any permission from the local BAR council, more so since as yet there is no restrictions in the Advocates Act.

Hello,

There's absolutely no bar in pursuing LLM while practising and you don't require to suspend your practise via an application to State Bar Council till the completion of your postgraduation. State bar council does not prohibits any practicing advocate to pursue LLM from any University.

Thank you very much for the information relevant to me. Just this year I will defend my dissertation at the postgraduation. Therefore, I have long been interested in this question, do I need to suspend training, since I am a practicing lawyer. Thanks, therefore.

If you want to pursue an LLM while practicing law, you don't need to apply for a suspension of your practice with the State Bar Council. An attorney in good standing may pursue an LLM at any accredited university, regardless of the state bar council's policy. wordle game
