The Centre has moved the Supreme Court seeking early hearing on a plea that has raised the issue whether foreign lawyers and law firms be allowed to practice in the country.

The Ministry of Law and Justice, in its plea, termed the issue as “an important” and “urgent one” and said that the Bar Council of India (BCI) has framed rules on the subject, but it was waiting for the judgement of the apex court.

It said the civil appeal on the issue was unlikely to be listed in near future and as the matter was of “utmost importance”, it was necessary to be decided at the earliest.

“Since the BCI, a statutory body, has framed rules in this regard, the applicant (Centre) humbly submits that the court may be pleased to decide the instant case and for that aspect the prayer of the applicant for early hearing,” the government said.

It submitted that according to the online case status, the civil appeal has no future date of listing for hearing and prayed for early hearing of the matter.
