I want younger lawyers to join the judiciary: CJI
CJI SH Kapadia expressed concern over younger lawyers not preferring to join judiciary and asked them to enter the profession to serve the nation.
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
"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.
