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.
When contacted, Moily confirmed the move: "Our wish is to have the best young legal brains working for the government in different capacities. Not all bright lawyers want to join law firms and shun courts. The ILS will give such lawyers an opportunity to work for the government in good positions."
