Justice Sanjeev Khanna said that the debates and decisions in the court should also be in simple language.
The Supreme Court has talked about the use of simple language in the legal profession, so that it is easy for the common man to understand it. On Sunday, September 24, the apex court also said that since the law is in simple language, people will take decisions wisely and will be able to avoid any kind of violation. Laws are a part of our everyday life, they control us. Therefore their language should be easy.
Justice Sanjeev Khanna made this comment during his speech at the International Lawyer Conference. The conference was organized by the Bar Council of India. Justice Khanna also said that this applies to our debates and decisions also. Is law a puzzle that needs solving? Laws are meant to resolve disputes, not to become controversial themselves. Law should not be a mystery to the citizens of the country.
Arbitrary fee collection is an obstacle in the way of justice – Justice Khanna
Justice Sanjeev Khanna said that the business of litigation and legal profession is a matter of concern. Due to rising costs of litigation and arbitrary fees of lawyers, many people do not get justice. This is a big obstacle in the path of justice. We must ensure that justice remains accessible to all. People associated with this profession should introspect.
Justice Khanna also said that we have to keep ourselves alive to revive and preserve some of the traditions of the legal profession. During this, he also raised the issue of giving less retainership or stipend to young lawyers.
Justice Khanna said that just as disputes are normal for humans, solutions are also normal. If we do business across the border, it is normal to have disputes. International law is required to settle such cases. There are also many rules that are needed to ensure easy execution.
