The legal fraternity is one of the most important pillars of our nation. Advocates diligently work to help their client and they need to be very ethical as they represent the clients before the deciding bodies and professional disciplinary committees. To ensure peace and harmony, the legal system is responsible for preserving, creating, altering, and even deleting any inconvenient laws that exist in the country's judicial system. However, it is said that this system can come to a halt when those in positions of authority in the judicial system act unlawfully or in ways that are not appropriate for them as a strike. It was declared by the court that such sought of calls for boycott are absolutely illegal. This paper analyses the advocate’s rights to strike and evaluates its constitutionality through the judicial contributions by the court on the same issue. According to the law commission of India report no. 266 the word strike has been in discussion, which is in equilibrium with India’s judicial system. According to the court the word strike is used for the workers, labourers, employers, employees and it is not suitable for professional such as the advocates of the legal system. This paper critically examines the judicial role and the validity of the strikes by the advocates.
