The Noble Lawyer and the Rehabilitation of the Profession

MYSORE: Advocates are responsible for corruption in the judiciary, said Rama Jois, Rajya Sabha member and former governor of Bihar and Jharkand.

Addressing the advocates after inaugurating a two-day state level conference organized by women advocates at the National Institute of Engineering sports complex, he said if judges are corrupt then lawyers are to blame; he called upon the advocates to root out corruption and help clients who come to them when they are in difficulty.

"A lawyer''s profession is noble. In those days, lawyers were held in high regard which is not the case at present. In the present system, advocates, after taking hefty money are ready to fabricate documents and also duplicate evidence," said Jois. He also lauded the strength of women in the profession. Five decades ago there were hardly any women advocates. Now, there are not only a good number of advocates, but judges too. He also called upon advocates to not charge exorbitant amounts as fees from clients.

"If you think that Lok Pal Bill will root out corruption then you are in fool''s paradise," added Jois.

The first day of the session dealt with professional expertise, ethics and personality development while on the second day subjects like Dowry Harassment Act, sexual harassment in work places and domestic violence will be discussed. The conference will have an open session on April 17 between 2pm and 3.30pm. Many lawyers from across the state and from other states are taking part in the two day conference which will conclude on Sunday.

Ramada, district minister, spoke on the occasion.
