The Bar Council of India (BCI) conferred five legal luminaries with lifetime achievement awards for their contributions to the field on Sunday. Senior advocates K Parasaran, Fali S Nariman, KK Venugopal, Soli J Sorabjee and Ram Jethmalani were among the legal veterans who were listed for the award. Sorabjee and Jethmalani were posthumously awarded for their contribution in the field of law.

Union Home Minister Amit Shah presented the awards to Nariman and Venugopal. Parasaran's award was accepted by his son, senior advocate Satish

Parasaran. The home minister also handed over the awards of Jethmalani and Sorabjee to their family members. 

Shah, while addressing the event, said "I want to say from the heart that awards were given to such persons that I felt proud felicitating them. It's always difficult to select people for awards from such a big field. But ask any person related to the legal field in the country and they will tell these names -- late senior advocates Sorabjee, Jethmalani, senior advocates Parasaran, Fali Nariman and Venugopal -- for the award."
