“The law, in its majestic equality, forbids the rich as well as the poor to sleep under ridges, to beg in the streets, and to steal bread.”
Being the socialist society, we have to adopt the views of Father of Nation “Mahatma Gandhi”, likewise in the enactment which do regulate the legal Profession in India enunciated very clearly that no one should be deprived of the justice, as justice should not only be done but seen to be done.
The views of the Gandhi ji are like guiding for our profession which person/citizen should precise not only for the person who is associated with this profession.
But everything has certain limit as law also prescribes limit for everything. Gandhi ji was of the view that the lawyer should engage themselves in social work, to interact with society as their profession is a noble profession which is also a kind of worship for them they also should adopt a liberal view toward their client and should not charge hefty fees. Rather they should also try to resolve the disputes of their client by performing the methods of arbitration, conciliation and mediation i.e. through Alternate Dispute Resolution System.
Lawyer should also encourage their clients to go by law and not against it and they should maintain peace and harmony in Society.
Therefore the views of a Gandhi ji are still pertinent the legal profession as well as for Indian Society. A lawyer should maintain peace and harmony and a peace loving. The Bar council and State Bar Council try their Level best to maintain the dignity of the profession by adopting the ideology of the Gandhi ji and we must adopt the service oriented approach toward the clients. As it is the duty of the students like us to adopt his approach and strive for the best, because the India i.e. our भारत माता is our motherland and we should maintain that environment so that future generation feel Proud of us.
“The end of law is not to abolish or restrain, but to preserve and enlarge freedom. For in all the states of created beings, capable of laws, where there is no law there is no freedom.”
