Equating a lawyer’s argument to a lamp that shines without discrimination, the chief minister of Tamil Nadu, MK Stalin, urged on Tuesday that law students should strive and ensure the victory of justice and not be limited to the success of their clients. Justice, especially social justice, should be ubiquitous and students seeking to practice law as a profession should serve as messengers of justice, the Chief Minister said during a speech at Dr. Ambedkar Law University in Tharamani here.
“People need justice. You should serve as messengers of justice. Use their legal acumen and debating skills to do justice to the poor and the oppressed,” the CM insisted. Recalling the famous statement by former Chief Minister CN Annadurai on the subject, Stalin said that justice should be made accessible to all. “The law is a darkroom where the lawyer’s argument is a lamp. It must be accessible to the poor… You must strive to ensure victory, not only for your customers, but also for justice,” he said. The Chief Minister inaugurated the silver jubilee plaque and released a special souvenir on the occasion.
