Mangaluru, April 1, 2018: The legal profession is service oriented profession and not a business, said Supreme Court judge Justice Abdul Nazeer.
He was speaking after releasing "Kanoonu Peethada Olumeya Osarugalu" based on the experiences of senior advocate Thonse Narayana Poojary. The book brought out by Akruthi Ashaya Publications was released at a function held at SDM Law College on Saturday.
Justice Nazeer said the profession of law should never be commercialised. He also expressed his resentment against the practice of many to opt for legal profession as a part time profession while engaging in other businesses.
Former advocate general B V Acharya, who presided over the function, said the legal profession is a very respectable profession which aims at ensuring justice to the clients. It should be considered as a service activity, he added
Veteran writer Erya Lakshminarayana Alva was present as a chief guest. Kallur Nagesh and Ravindra Ullal of Akrithi Ashaya Publications were honoured.
Author Tonse Narayana Poojary welcomed the gathering. Shashiraj Rao Kavoor compered the programme.
