Young law graduates should devote time to legal aid: U.U. Lalit, CJI

Uday Umesh Lalit, the Chief Justice of India, stated on Saturday that recent law graduates should invest as much time and effort as they can into offering legal assistance services. Speaking on Saturday at the National  Law University, Odisha’s 9th convocation event in Cuttack, the Chief Justice of India said that he has been involved with legal assistance work for the past year and a half and that work in this area is “a bit neglected” nationwide. 

“You are now the new torchbearers. Consider legal aid up to a point. You will regain that degree of compassion if you devote as much of your time and energy as you can to legal aid work. You’ll move in the correct way because of that compassion. According to Justice Lalit, who also serves as the director of the National Legal Services Authority, legal assistance services would also foster compassion.

According to Justice D.Y. Chandrachud, accountability aspires to replace tyranny.  “With a culture of rights respect, the law combats arbitrariness. In that view, the law is a very important component of our society because, as long as the law promotes inclusiveness and pluralism, our society can endure and remain stable. When we acknowledge that we all hold different opinions and accept those opinions, “added Justice Chandrachud.
