Mysuru, August 5:- “Today, the job of an advocate has a lot of competition. The profession has a lot of demand as well,” said Principal District and Sessions Court Judge Suresh K Vantigodi.
He was speaking at the orientation programme for the first-year students of Vidyavardhaka Law College on Sheshadri Road here on Monday.
“We can see a lot of competition in medical, engineering and other fields. A similar situation is seen in the advocates’ profession. It is a golden opportunity for those who take up the profession. Advocates should be honest and listen to the grievances of the public. Attend the courts every day to listen to the proceedings of the court. Books related to the profession should be studied. Along with protecting the interest of clients, the interest of the society should also be protected,” he added.
“There are many Acts related to civil, criminal, labour, transport and other issues. There have been several amendments to these Acts. They should also be studied,” he advised.
“Law is becoming a major profession. Students are enrolling more in numbers for the course. The profession will be hailed as a noble profession in future,” he added.
“The first court in India was started in Mumbai in 1672. Courts are functioning properly in India since then. Register yourselves in District Bar Council,” he said.
President of Vidyavardhaka Sangha Gundappa Gowda presided over the event.
Seer Yukteshananda of Sri Ramakrishna Ashram, secretary P Vishwanath, treasurer Shreeshaila Ramannanavar, member Swamy Lingappa and others were present. (MR/KS)
