Deal Litigation With Compassion And Charity: HC Judge

  • Karnataka High Court Judge Mohan M. Shantanagoudar said:
  • Advocates should employ compassion and charity when dealing with their litigants, particularly the poor.
  • Alluding to the Iranian mother who pardoned her son’s killer moments before he was to be executed, he said that compassion and charity is the true form of any religion, and a person who sincerely adopted these was truly complete.
  • He condemned the tendency of junior advocates of starting practise immediately after registering their names in the Bar and this will prove detrimental to them in the long run. He also advised them to get trained for some years under senior advocates whose expertise and knowledge will fine tune their skills.
  • According to him, nature’s law propagates humanness and advocated prevention of crime and dangers of committing a crime which when practised would prevent crimes. Man-made laws on the other hand, advocated the punishment aspect of the crime.
