The step taken by the team of ipleaders is very laudable. The Senior Research Fellowship is very useful to the young Lawyers practicing in State Capitals or in Delhi. Young Lawyers practicing at Subordinate Court level or District level may not use this opportunity because Law Firms at district level is very, very less. Trial Court Advocates should have knowledge of “In house training” provided by the Corporates, internships available in reputed Law Firms and Corporates and other various departments. It is unfortunate many are commenting on the pendency of the cases as if it is the inefficiency at the Trial court level but in reality lack of sufficient Courts at District level. Governments are also not concentrating on the appointment of Law Officers like PPs, APPs, G.Ps. and AGPs and other Standing Counsels as well as not recruiting sufficient Court Staff. There must be transparency in appointment of such Law Officers. To give opportunity to more Advocates from the Advocates Panel the Govt. has to take steps to appoint them as quickly as possible. More delay leads to denial of opportunities to other Advocates and existing Law Officers will continue even after completion of their term/s.
Once the pendency is on the rise, Courts prefer out of Court settlements. Precisely say at present Judicial Officers or Judges want a radical change in the mindset of Lawyers across the country ie. from linear thinking to lateral thinking. What we need a new mindset. More creativity rather than to follow the already decided cases or judgments.
Once again congratulations to the team of creative and innovative ipleaders. To tap the knowledge expand your base to Trial Courts also. Don’t limit your activities to mere State Capitals or Cities or New Delhi. We wish in future you will undertake more and more creative activities.
