Kochi: Journalists regularly reporting Kerala High Court proceedings should possess a law degree, according to new norms for accreditation of legal correspondents in the high court decided at a Full Court meeting.

The norms, approved by the Full Court on November 10, come into force with immediate effect.

According to the norms, a working journalist who desires to regularly report proceedings of the court must have a law degree recognised by the Bar Council of India and five years' continuous regular court reporting experience, of which at least three-and-a-half years must be at the high court or Supreme Court.

The court has also set conditions for granting temporary accreditation for journalists and temporary reporting facility.

One of the conditions set for applying for temporary accreditation says that the journalist should posses a law degree recognised by the Bar Council of India.

He should ordinarily have two years' continuous regular court reporting experience in a daily newspaper or international or national news agencies, immediately prior to the application for accreditation, of which at least one year must be at any high courts in the country, it said.
