TOPIC: CHANGING CIRCUMSTANCES OF LITIGATION
Date: 26th September, 2020.
Speaker: Mr. Paras Sukhwani, Practising Advocate at Gujarat High Court
Highlights: Mr. Sukhwani started the session on a very interesting note that there is a general impression about the lawyers that they scream ‘tareekh pe tareekh’ but in the court of law a lawyer is a draftsman who crusades with his knowledge to secure the ends of justice. He further added that the courts are the temple of justice and it is the moral responsibility of everyone to keep its sanctity. The speaker highlighted the fact that the new generation wants to be rich overnight and therefore he said that if the ‘Cash is king, bribery is the Prince’. He also emphasized that every time winning is not important and one should commit mistakes and learn. We should remember ‘Kanun andha hota hai, judge nahi’. He suggested students not to commit anything which we cannot fulfil and never to go overboard while dealing with any legal matter. Lawyers must always remember justice demands integrity. ‘Friends are bound to appreciate you but it’s important when your rivals appreciate you’. Carrying the legacy of his family ahead he encouraged the students to take up law as a profession by discussing the nuances of this field.
