On 4th August 2018, our current Chief Justice of India Dipak Mishra addressed the gathering of law students at a public function, in Delhi. In his address the qualities of a good Lawyer were brought forth with relevant reasoning. In this article we will try to read between the lines and understand the concept of Cause Lawyering expounded by our current CJI.
Chief Justice of India urged the young lawyers to be courageous and not to get swayed away by infinite distractions that might come in their determination to be a successful Lawyer. CJI wants the students of law and legal professionals to be humble towards the profession, and suggested the young generation to move ahead in this profession courageously.
Chief Justice of India brought the legal professional at par with community builder and society protector. According to him, attitude of a lawyer must be service oriented towards the court and judiciary as an institution. He further placed importance on familiarization with the undercurrents of various social diversities and disparities that divides the society in order to be able to correlate law and social impulses. CJI termed welfare of people as the supreme law and appealed to all young generation lawyers to climb the ladder of their professional success with taking deprived section of society along.
Chief Justice of India have designated the budding lawyers as crusaders for change in the drive towards equal rights, liberty and justice. He mandates for every lawyer to devote some part of the professional service for well being of the underprivileged and to work for betterment of the deprived section of the society.
In the conclusion of his address CJI requested the students to foster high ambitions while entering the legal profession and to cultivate the quality of thought and intellectual vigor through hard work, dedication and perseverance. He subsided the age factor with a clear message that even the young generation lawyers have the ability to teach the experienced members of the Bar and the Bench.
