And finally… fake law

A woman managed to dupe the legal profession into believing she was qualified to practise law for three years.

Sessy Xavier, 27, from Kerala in India allegedly forged documents to join the Alappuzha Bar Association.

Xavier, who lacked an LLB, was outed by an anonymous letter sent to the bar association. She was given 24 hours to produce her documents, which she failed to do.

She has now reportedly fled.

In 2017, the Bar Council of India reported that an incredible 45 per cent of lawyers in the country were fake.
