Mahatma Gandhi - “……But both were happy over the result, and both rose in the public estimation. My joy was boundless I had learnt the true practice of law. I had learnt to find out the better side of human nature and to enter men’s hearts. I realized that the true function of a lawyer was to unite Parties riven as under. The lesson was so indelibly burnt into me that a large part of my time during the twenty years of my practice as a lawyer was occupied in bringing about private compromises of hundreds of cases. I lost nothing thereby- not even money, certainly not my soul.” ......know more
Abraham Lincoln - “Discourage litigation. Persuade your clients to compromise, whenever you can. Point out to them the nominal winner is often a real loser; in fees, expenses and waste of time. As a peace-maker, the lawyer has a superior opportunity of being a good person.” ......know more
Hon’ble Justice M. B. Shah - “It is to be remembered that delay in disposal of cases has affected the entire system. To some extent, it is malignancy because unscrupulous litigants take advantage of such delays. For removing this malignancy, surgery is must. That surgery is to be performed by the Chief Justices of the High Court and the District Judges all over the country. It is expected that Surgeon should not have shaky hands. He must be confident of what he is expected to do. Further, it is for the Judges or Chief Justices of the High Courts to see that the procedure prescribed under the CPC is strictly followed”......know more
