Chennai: The Parliamentary Standing
Committee on Personnel, Public Grievances, Law and Justice is
looking into the possibility of providing stipends to young
people pursuing law, its chairperson Jayanthi Natarajan said

The committee was already studying the conditions
under which young lawyers were working, she said at a function
organised at the high court premises here to enroll new
members to the bar.

Lawyers had a very special place in the country`s
democratic set-up, she said and asked them to protect the
interests of their clients and uphold the dignity of law.

"You must always remember your duty to your country,
client and profession," she said and asked lawyers to apply
the latest technological advancements in their profession.

In all 930 law graduates enrolled as advocates today
