The process of delivering justice is an equal effort from Bench and Bar. The quality of judgements depends on the quality of arguments and the Madurai Bar has done well to contribute towards this, said Madras High Court Chief Justice Indira Banerjee at the 14th anniversary celebration of the Bench here on Tuesday.

Chief Justice Indira Banerjee pointed out that it was not just judges alone but also advocates, the registry, stenographers and court staff who contributed towards swift disposal of cases. She said that the Madurai Bench of the Madras High Court had delivered significant judgements in the recent past and was overwhelmed by the gesture extended to her by the advocates touching upon the anniversary celebrations.

Addressing the request for additional chambers for advocates, she said that the building committee was looking into the matter on the feasibility of additional construction. Speaking on her elevation to the Supreme Court, she said that she would be taking happy memories from Tamil Nadu.

Offering a piece of advice to budding advocates, she said that they had an immense responsibility to be fully prepared to assist the court. She advised them to prepare a list of annexures so that they need not search for them in court and added that they should also render assistance in legal services.

Administrative Judge of the High Court Bench, Justice C. T. Selvam pointed out that the High Court Bench boasted of good disposal rate. Justice Huluvadi G. Ramesh extended his thanks to the advocates. Sitting judges at the High Court Bench, advocates, registry officials and court staff participated in the event.

The judges planted saplings as part of the event and funds accrued in the ‘Environmental Fund will be utilised for maintenance of the saplings. Two additional mediation halls were also inaugurated earlier in the day.
