Before the independence, the objective of the law was only limited to the maintenance of peace by punishing the wrongdoers and resolving litigations. But after the independence with the establishment of constitutional supremacy in India, the state is now obligated to provide social, economic, and political justice for all sections of the community with Equality of status and opportunity. Therefore, the legal profession became the issue of national debate, and globalization led this debate at the international level. As a signatory to the General Agreement on Trade and Services (GATS), India is obligated to liberalize its legal sector. However, it has not been able to make much progress on this behalf due to stiff opposition from Indian lawyers’ representative bodies. In this backdrop, this article explores the possibility of the liberalization of legal services in India.
