NEW DELHI: Amidst strong opposition from lawyers against opening up of legal services sector for foreign advocates, Chief Justice of India J S Khehar on Saturday batted for liberalization and global integration and said that the sector should not remain closed for foreign lawyers and they should be allowed to enter Indian market to provide their services.

Justice Khehar said that Indian lawyers were competent enough to compete with the foreign players and their apprehension that their jobs would be taken away was misplaced.
