Advocate's Day is celebrated in India every 3rd of December each year. Advocates belong to an independent profession, and they are not subordinate to the government or anyone else. They are directly in contact with the people of the nation, as they have to deal with all kinds of social and personal issues of people from all sections of the society. And thus, the whole nation celebrates Advocate's Day every year on December 3. However, the people who don't miss this celebration are those involved in the lawyer community. Particularly, this day marks the birth anniversary of Dr Rajendra Prasad, the first President of India and an incredibly eminent lawyer.

Advocate's Day is celebrated in our country on 3rd December to mark the birth anniversary of Dr Rajendra Prasad. He was born on 3 December 1884 and he was an Indian Independence activist, lawyer, scholar, and the first Indian President, in office from 1946 to 1950. Rajendra Prasad was an Indian political leader and lawyer by profession. He decided to pursue law studies in 1909, and he completed his Bachelor in Law and passed his Masters in 1915, receiving a gold medal. In the following year, Rajendra Prasad joined the High Court of Bihar and Odisha, and he similarly practised law in the city of Bhagalpur.

Rajendra Prasad's career as a lawyer was incredibly impressive but in 1920 he decided to retire to participate in the independence movement. However, in 1937 he completed his Doctorate in Law, receiving a degree from Allahabad University. And for the independence movement, he joined the Indian National Congress and became a major leader from the region of Bihar. He was a supporter of Mahatma Gandhi and was imprisoned by the British authorities during the Salt Satyagraha of 1931 and the Quit India Movement of 1942. After the 1946 elections, Rajendra Prasad served as Minister of Food and Agriculture in the central government. After independence in 1947, Rajendra Prasad was elected as President of the Constituent Assembly of India, which prepared the Constitution of India to keep up the laws and regulations in the country. This great legend left us on 28 February 1963, but his great work as a lawyer, activist, and a politician will remain in the hearts of millions of Indians.

India celebrates the Advocate's Date every year on December 3 to applaud the birth anniversary of Dr Rajendra Prasad, but the lawyer's community especially do not prefer to miss this celebration. During this special day of celebration, people take time to remember Rajendra Prasad and lawyers also join together to celebrate their profession and honour Rajendra Prasad who was one of the most successful lawyers in the country. Another promising reason to celebrate this day is the respectable lawyers we have got, and these lawyers make justice prosper. They help the wrongly accused get free. They similarly help in fair settlements and many other things. And this is why lawyers deserve to be honoured during this special Advocate's Day.

In modern times, many lawyers have given leadership to India, like Prashant Bhushan, and Ram Vilas Paswan, and this happens because this profession itself holds pure knowledge about the laws of various fields. And it is indeed a fascinating field which is why a lot of people wish to become lawyers in different types. Lawyers of our country have been noteworthy in shaping revolutionary movements in the society for a constant positive change, and they truly deserve a day on their name due to their huge contribution in society.
