Section 34(1) of the Advocates Act, 1961 empowers the High Court to make rules laying down the conditions subject to which an advocate shall be permitted to practise in the High Court and the courts subordinate thereto. The issue came up in the case of  Bar Council Of India v. High Court Of Kerala on 27 April, 2004 and the court decided that such rules are not unconstitutional and HC has the jurisdiction to frame the same.
