NLSIU gets second senior counsel in Dayan Krishnan, alongside Amit Sibal and Anup Bhambhani at Delhi HC

Sibal: Part UK/US trained

Amit Sibal, Cambridge University graduate, Dayan Krishnan, public prosecutor and 1993 NLSIU Bangalore graduate, and Anup Bhambhani, have been designated senior counsel in the Delhi high court.

Sibal, who is the son of union law minister Kapil Sibal, confirmed to Legally India that he, Krishnan and Bhambhani had been designated.

Sibal obtained his LLB from Cambridge in 1994, after a philosophy, politics and economics degree from Oxford. He later completed an LLM from Harvard University and worked at Davis Polk Wardwell until 2002.

Krishnan, who graduated from NLS' first batch, was designated special public prosecutor in the 16 December 2012 Delhi gang rape case.

Punjab and Haryana high court lawyer and NLSIU Bangalore graduate Akshay Bhan was designated as a senior counsel late last month, as the first from a national law school to have been bestowed the designation at the courts.

Bhan had told Legally India that he expected Krishnan to also receive the nod soon.

More to follow. Hat tip to @spread_law which first tweeted the news of Sibal's designation
