Procedure to become SC lawyer

The Supreme Court lawyer is the third level in law practice in Pakistan. After successful completion of seven years practice at a high court an application can be made to the Pakistan Bar Council for becoming an advocate Supreme Court.
This is then reviewed by a panel of Supreme Court judges headed by the Chief Justice of Pakistan.
