OUR HISTORY

 

The Province of Madrtas has produced erudite lawyers with good practice at the Bar and the profession has given to the High Court Several great judges.

1889

Established

The Madras Advocates' Association has hoary tradition. Started in 1889, a hundred yeras ago "for the purpose of mutal cooperation and a better safeguarding of the intrests of the profession" the association has well and truly fulfilled its objectives. It has always strive to maintain the high tradions of the bar and a very high standrad of professinol conduct. The cordial relation between the bench and the bar in this state is in no small measure due to collective wisdom of the advocates' association of which the judge themselves were members before elevation to the bench.

THE Madras bar has produced a galaxy of eminent and erudite lawyers whose names are legendery. As a young practitioner, i used to here about Sir Subramania Iyer, Sir V. Bhashyam Iyengar, Sir Sankaran Nair, Sir V. Krishnaswami Iyer, DR. Swaminadhan and so on. They were all more than a match to the Brithish Barristers who used to dominate in other presidency High courts. In the early days when practice in the original side was reserved for only barristers and solicitors, the british Barristers made a great name for themselves. However, after the Vakils were admitted to practice on the original side, their predominance waned and a good many vakils took pre-eminent positions in the original and appellate sides of the High Court. In fact, barring Mr.Eardley Norton and Mr.Nugent Grant, no Brithish Barrister could make a mark against the Vakils of the Madras bar.
