Chief Justice of Madras High Court, Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul, today urged advocates not to consider judges as rivals or enemies and make all efforts to conduct their cases in the best possible manner so that justice could be upheld or delivered.
Inaugurating the Third state level Law seminar, organised by the Madurai district advocates association here, he said "Judiciary is not the enemy of the advocates."
Advocates should make all efforts to uphold justice, he added.
Referring to disciplinary proceedings against some lawyers, he said "such action has to be taken against some advocates."
The objective of the court was to maintain the purity of the judiciary and the advocates who represented the public should remain disciplined, he said.
Kaul expressed his concern over piling up of unsolved cases across the state.
Claiming that lakhs of cases were being decided in various courts across the state, he said advocates and judges should work together in expediting the cases and reducing the pendency.
