"We need to have faith in our legal system", commented Senior Advocate Shyam Divan on Saturday, adding, "we need Constitutional functionaries with courage and judges with courage."
Without constitutional functionaries with courage, what would result are jellyfish judges and a jellyfish jurisprudence, he added.
Divan was responding to a question posed on the erosion of faith in the legal system during a virtual event organised by the Jammu and Kashmir Judicial Academy in conjunction with the Jammu and Kashmir High Court.
The discussion on a 'Career in Constitutional Law Practice’ also featured Senior Advocates Madhavi Divan, Parag Tripathi and Advocate Neelima Tripathi as speakers, with lawyer and Constitutional law scholar Gautam Bhatia moderating the event.
