Common People Cannot Afford Quality Legal Advice: CJI Ramana

New Delhi: The judicial system is facing difficult challenges like deficient infrastructure, shortage of administrative staff and huge vacancies of judges, said Chief Justice of India NV Ramana.

According to Justice Ramana, India needs National Judicial Infrastructure Corporation.

“I’ve prepared a voluminous report, collecting information from every nook & corner of the country detailing how many court buildings, chambers, & facilities that we have to provide to the Bar & women lawyers. After one week, I will present it to the law minister,” CJI Ramana was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.

“I want to highlight a new trend in (legal) profession. I’m referring to corporatization of the profession. Because of issues relating to livelihood, many young & bright lawyers are joining law firms… It is also causing a decline in traditional practice,” he said.

“Common people cannot afford quality legal advice at corporate prices, which is an area of concern. Even though we are strongly providing access to justice, lakhs of people in India are unable to approach courts to seek remedy,” the CJI said.

Talking about the women law professionals, he said, “Majority of women advocates struggle in the profession, very few women find representation at the top. After 75 years of independence, one would expect at least 50% women representation at all levels but we have been able to achieve only 11% at Supreme Court bench.”
