Mumbai: Chief Justice of India DY Chandrachud has called for greater collaboration between judges and lawyers to strengthen the legal system and make it resilient for future challenges.

Speaking at an event organized to mark the 75th Marathwada Liberation Day, also known as Marathwada Mukti Sangram Din, Justice Chandrachud emphasized that the Bar and the Bench should work together to find solutions for the betterment of the legal system and the administration of justice.

He also cautioned against lawyers resorting to strikes and boycotting courts, saying that issues could always be amicably resolved by discussion and cooperation.

Justice Chandrachud also stressed the need to ensure that women are given a significant voice in the legal system, as legal professionals. He said that it is a constitutional duty of every member of the legal profession to provide substantive institutional support and encouragement to women lawyers.

For the young lawyers, he encouraged all lawyers to provide proper guidance and support to the young members of the legal profession.

Greater collaboration between judges and lawyers is essential to address these challenges and ensure that the legal system is able to meet the needs of the people.
