In his address, Kant said Karol has never allowed technicalities to overshadow the free flow of Justice.

Justice Sanjay Karol said he feels proud to share that on the national index HP HC is among the top most high courts. He emphasised that the strength of the Bench lies in a strong Bar.

He obtained degree in law from HP University and was enrolled as an advocate in 1986. He practised in various courts, including Supreme Court in constitutional, taxation, corporate, criminal and civil matters. He appeared as counsel in the inter-state water Dispute (BBMB Project) in the SC.

He discharged constitutional duties as Advocate General of Himachal Pradesh from 1998 to 2003 and was designated as senior advocate in 1999.
