Section 438 of the CrPC too gives one amongst the several in vogue definitions of anticipatory bail in its title, to wit, anticipatory bail is a "Direction for grant of bail to person apprehending arrest". Section 438 is reproduced hereunder.Section 437(1) of CrPC: When bail may be taken in the case of non-bailable offences: 
(1) When any person accused of, or suspected of, the commission of any non- bailable offence is arrested or detained without warrant by an officer in charge of a police station or appears or is brought before a Court other than the High Court or Court of Session, he may be released on bail, but-
(i) such person shall not be so released...
...and gives an undertaking that he shall comply with such directions as may be given by the Court.
It would however be a good idea to remain present at the lawyer's office in order to provide your valuable inputs while the bail application is drafted, Also make sure that you keep in touch with your lawyer and that he informs you about the date of hearing of your bail application as and when he learns about it. It is a good idea for you to go to the court on the appointed day, just to be present while the lawyer makes his arguments, and to make sure that the lawyer is actively pursuing your case.Section 438 of CrPC: Direction for grant of bail to person apprehending arrest: 
Where any person has reason to believe that he may be arrested on accusation of having committed a non-bailable offence, he may apply to the High Court or the Court of Session for a direction under this section that in the event of such arrest he shall be released on bail; and that Court may, after taking into consideration, inter-alia, the following factors, namely-
the nature and gravity of the accusation;
the antecedents of the applicant including the fact...
...he shall be released on bail, and if a Magistrate taking cognizance of such offence decides that a warrant should issue in the first instance against that person, he shall issue a bailable warrant in conformity with the direction of the Court under Sub-Section.
