Judgement is losing its acceptance; there is a need to relook on how cases have to be instituted: Justice B S Patil
A workshop on ‘Access to Justice and rule of law’ was held at JSS Law College premises in the city, on Saturday.
High court judge Justice B S Patil inaugurated the workshop organised by JSS Law College in association with Karnataka Institute for Law and Parliamentary Reforms (KILPAR).
Addressing the gathering B S Patil said: “As the legal maxim says Justice delayed is justice denied, most of the people today are poor in legal literacy. Even though there is good access to get informed on legal services, there is still a hesitation among the general public. It is high time for the public to come forward and get equip with necessary information and skills required to speak and advocate for themselves. The students of law must also equip in such a way that they shouldn’t tolerate any kind of injustice in the society and must strive for excellence which will have a great impact.”
“Judgement is losing its acceptance and there is a need to relook on how cases have to be instituted, Students of law must focus on these things and workshops of this kind will provide them a great platform to get exposed in to various topics related to justice and rule of law,” he added.
Member of BAR council and syndicate member of KSLU, M Anil Kumar said: “The Karnataka Institute for Law and Parliamentary Reforms have a great importance on young generations. Access to justice and Rule of law is not as simple it looks, this issue has been a global challenge and even various developed countries are still facing problems with judgement delivery system. Workshops of this kind will provide a great learning experience to the students and prepare themselves to be aware of certain problems with the judgement delivery system.”
