Supreme Court judge Arun Mishra today stressed on the need to improve the quality of legal education in India and said Bar Council of India should look into it.
"Quality of education should be good. If the number of institutions or colleges is high but there is no quality, then it is useless," he said while speaking on challenges and future of the profession at a conference here.
He also highlighted the need to clear pendency in courts and provide "affordable justice" to people.
Suggesting young lawyers to work hard and practice with dedication, he stressed on promoting 'Guru-Shishya' tradition in lawyers' fraternity and said young lawyers and newcomers should be promoted and given adequate remuneration by seniors.
Newly-appointed Chief Justice of Rajasthan High Court Navin Sinha said new lawyers should keep themselves updated with developments and new judgments.
