Worried that promising, fresh law graduates are more keen to join high-paying private law firms than work for the government or take up private court practice, the Law and Justice Ministry is giving final touches to a plan to attract such law graduates.
Union Law Minister M Veerappa Moily is shortly expected to announce a scheme to allow law graduates enter the government after clearing a civil services-type UPSC examination and joining the Indian Legal Service (ILS).
Moily has already held preliminary talks with officials of the Department of Personnel and Training.
Once selected, ILS officers would be appointed law officers in the government of India as well as state governments, which opt for the service.
