Noida: The profession of law on Friday is
regarded as a creator of problems rather than a provider of
solutions, noted advocate Ram Jethmalani said here.
"In ancient times, only three professions were considered
noble -- that of a priest, a doctor and a lawyer.
Unfortunately, today the profession of law has hit rock bottom
of social acceptance," the BJP MP said addressing a colloquium
on `Challenges of Evolution of Criminal Law` held at the Amity
The profession now has been regarded as a creator of
problems rather than the one that provides solution to
troubles, he said, adding it is, however, not possible for a
country to become successful without lawyers.
The main problems faced by criminal law, Jethmalani felt,
were corruption and terrorism.
He also expressed concern over siphoning off money by
Indians and sending it to foreign banks.
