“Law students are not just a part of law system but they have greater roles to play and support those people who are in need,” said judicial member of National Green Tribunal and former judge of high court of Karnataka, Justice Jawad Rahim.
Delivering the graduation day address at the ninth graduation day of JSS Law College held in the city on Saturday, Justice Rahim emphasised on how youngsters play a crucial role among the global community. “Graduation day is an occasion that brings a transition from the life of a student to the life of a responsible individual. From today, all the graduates become full-fledged responsible citizens who need to work hard and help the people in need. Life is not a struggle but a commitment. With all the hardships and efforts today, all the law students have successfully graduated. It was earlier said that law is the desirable evil of society but it is the necessity of the society. For a law student, the law field has very rapidly opened up. He or she can not only be a lawyer but build a career in business and administration field as well.”
“If we consider the matrix of society, we have different textures of people surrounding us. They may be successful entrepreneurs, a highly qualified or a person with unparalleled achievements, but these should not lead to imbalance in the society. The globe is moving in a disastrous way and it’s in the hands of youngsters and students to bring transformation in the society and make it a better place to live,” he added.
