Hyderabad: Gathering of nearly 400 law aspirants at a seminar organised by Sahayata Trust at Salar Jung Museum on Sunday, the former acting chief Justice of Andhra Pradesh High Court advised “students to become compassionate lawyers with legal, human, ethical and spiritual values.” “Law may have different folds but it meant for setting the principles that make the society, upholding the peace and integrity of the system.” Lawyers can help unite the society, reunited estranged husband and wife; help solve neighbourhood disputes with their greater understanding of the law and judicial system. “Law is a noble, honourable and service-oriented profession. It helps in ameliorating the society and giving it new direction. No other profession can bring such magnanimous change in the society as law”, said Justice V Eshwariah.
The purpose of the society justice system or law career is to do service to the society, make it communal free, commercial free, he advised while adding that a lawyer can also pursue civil services and do bigger things to serve the society. Many of the freedom fighters too were law graduates, he added. Speaking on the occasion, former IAS and Director of Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (India) Prof. Amir Ullah Khan said India has huge scope for law graduates. There is a shortage of nearly 30 lakh lawyers in India. Currently, there are only 15 lakh lawyers against a requirement of 45 lakh lawyers. He added that “nearly 3 crore cases are pending in Indian courts.”
Presenting the various career opportunities in law, he said CLAT and law exams open doors of tremendous opportunities with law as a career. While one can choose to become a lawyer and start practising in the court, others unwilling to go to courts can became legal consultants, law writers, or render services as a corporate consultant, legislative or constitutional law consultant, etc. In his presidential address, CEO of Sahayata Trust Syed Aneesuddin said “Sahayata Trust aims to transform these young law aspirants into India’s best legal luminaries. The trust is providing CLAT coaching to students, and offering scholarships to students pursuing law courses, particularly CLAT.”
