Prez Kovind calls upon legal professionals to ensure easy access to legal assistance for poor

@rashtrapatibhvn
President Ramnath Kovind has asked the legal professionals to enable the poor to get justice on par with the rich in the society.

Addressing the Special Convocation of the Tamil Nadu Dr Ambedkar Law University in Chennai this morning, he said, it would be a travesty of the republican ethic if a poor person did not get the same access to the law as a rich person.

He called upon all those in the legal profession including judges, lawyers and court officers to ensure the primacy of the rule of law.

President Kovind observed that as the nation keeps evolving, the legal profession is also undergoing drastic changes and said the legal students now find many avenues open to them than any time in the past.

President Ramnath Kovind has insisted that the judgments of higher judiciary should be made available in the language of the litigants so that the legal system could be made simpler for the people.

He appreciated the Chattisgarh High Court for paying heed to his suggestion to translate all judgments into Hindi and said High Courts like Madras and Kerala could emulate the practice. He underscored that legal professionals should maintain the highest standards of public ethics.

Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswamy announced in the function that three new law colleges under the university would be established this year.

In the Special Convocation of the law university, three eminent judges were conferred honorary doctorate in law.
