Hi, I am attempting to research the introduction of British Law and its very first Indigenous [Indian] Lawyers in South India, particularly those that practised in the then Madras State. Can anyone direct me to texts or information sites that may give me a clue as to where to start. I guess I should ask whether there were any Indian born lawyers that were allowed to practice prior to 1850? Would the Madras High Court/Tamil Nadu Law Society have any old records?
Any asistance is appreciated. Thank you for your time.
