Advocates-on-record designation challenge dismissed in SC

The Advocates-on-record (AOR) designation will stay in the Supreme Court, decided a bench of justices AR Dave and AK Goel dismissing the challenge to the AOR system that was filed more than two years ago, reported Live Law.

The Supreme Court’s briefing counsel senior advocate Sidharth Luthra’s assertion, that the AOR designation does not take away the right of other advocates to practice before the Supreme Court, reportedly won against senior advocate Rakesh Dwivedi’s assertion that the Supreme Court now has no power to make rules related to various advocates’ practice rights before it.

Dwivedi was appearing for the Supreme Court Advocates Association (SCAA) which had challenged the AOR system before the SC in February 2013. The AOR system provides that AORs are the only class of advocates which has the right to file a case on behalf of a litigant in the Supreme Court, in addition to the rights of advocates and senior advocates to argue for the litigant before the Supreme Court.
