New Delhi: Chief Justice of India S H Kapadia today expressed concern over many younger lawyers not preferring to join judiciary and asked them to enter the profession to serve the country.

"Today the problem is that many of the young people would like to go for non-litigation matters. They prefer to sit in cozy air conditioned chambers. I am not blaming them.

"They prefer to draft documents. Economic circumstances are such so I am not blaming anyone. But I want the younger people to join the profession. I want younger people to join the judiciary so that they can serve the country and the people," Justice Kapadia said.

The CJI, who was speaking at the convocation function of the Indian Law Institute, also praised the younger generation for their objective view in dealing with their jobs.

"I am putting this in public domain today. Today in most complicated cases, very eminent senior lawyers are appearing in the Supreme Court but at the end of the day we find that it is the material by the young junior lawyers who are working very hard.

"I am proud of the younger generation because they think objectively and I am sure that all of you will take my advise and focus on clarity, confidence and commitment," he said.
