Expert View

Chief Justice Sharad Arvind Bobde“The highest priority of any judicial system has to be justice and at no cost it can be sacrificed for anything else because that is the reason for existence of courts and if that is sacrificed, rest does not matter, only goal is justice. In that process, you have to ensure that it is delivered in reasonable time.”

— Justice Sharad Arvind Bobde,
Chief Justice of India Designate

G E Vahanvati, Attorney General“First of all, you (a lawyer) must be prepared to work very hard. Unfortunately, today with word processors, it is a cut-and-paste job. Everything is very easy with search engines and all sorts of finders. If you are appearing in court, you must exude the aura that the judge will believe what you say”

Attorney General
