Stipend for Junior Lawyers

Dear members, should a stipend scheme be introduced for junior lawyers? Because surviving for the first few years in the legal profession is much difficult than in any other profession. If it is not possible to give stipend  for everyone merit exam can be conducted and those selected can be given a stipend. Thank u in advance for ur views.

Good idea. I am of the view that atleast up to three years they should be supported.

Stipend is a must but there need not be any exam or other criterion. Most of the juniors are used for only getting of adjournments in the beginning till they learn the profession. So it is better to pay them and find out their talent in the years of practice and then the seniors can decide later whether to retain them or not.

Cost of living is skyrocketing. Pattern of living changing. It is hard to spent years as juniors .. It is high time to think about introducing some sort of monetary support to the bidding lawyers, otherwise India will find difficulty to get services  of good brain in the field of law.  What to do ? Who will think about these matters.? Even lawyers turned politicians are in the forefront of accusing lawyers and  judiciary.

Unlike other professions, in Legal world the juniors are exposed to the most deoplorable conditions especially those in remote parts of the Country. I am of the view that after completion of the Bar examt they should be supported by the State at least up to three years to enable them to concetrate in their practise and other practical matters.
