Abstract

The Legal Profession is one of the most crucial limbs for administration of justice. The Profession from its inception has been recognised and claimed as a Gentlemen’s club. But, in the recent years, the legal profession has undergone significant change, with rapidly rising numbers of women enrolling and seeking legal education. However, though there has been significant rise in the number of women in law colleges but one finds a very disappointing number of women in law courts. Thus, it becomes very imperative to understand the factors that contribute to such a scenario. Therefore, the present study is undertaken to understand the plight of women in the Indian Courts. Further, the study attempts to analyse the challenges and the difficulties faced by the women in the litigation profession. The study is based on the Courts in Delhi as it, being a metropolitan city, is believed to be conducive to the working environment for women class with relatively fair socio-economic conditions. For the sake of effectively studying the grass root level, the researcher has targeted only on the city's District Courts.
