Incorrect legal opinion of an advocate does not make him liable in criminal court.


This law has been decided by Supreme Court of India in case reported in 2012(9) SCC 512 A.

An opinion of an advocate, may or may not be accepted. But that will not automatically make him liable in criminal law. It has not been proved in this case that there was any criminal case in which advocate also had conspired.
