120 Law

KOCHI: It is worth taking up the profession of an advocate, despite the hardships, for it is a means to express oneself, said Justice Anu Sivaram.

“The basic thing one must understand is never to get carried away by overconfidence, and to remain open-minded to learn new things,” she said while delivering the keynote address at an enrolment function organised by the Bar Council of Kerala at the Maharaja’s College Auditorium here on Sunday.

A total of 120 law graduates were enrolled as advocates at the function, after taking the ‘oath of upholding the dignity of legal profession’, recited by Bar Council of Kerala chairman Joseph John. According to Justice Anu, while it is a good sign that the number of women taking up the legal profession is increasing every year, it is a sad fact that only a few of them stay in the profession. “It might be due to the hard work and dedication the profession demands. What experience has taught me is that being a practitioner of law is worth and always rewarding,” she said.

The function was attended by Bar Council of Kerala members, Kerala High Court Additional Advocate General Babu Varghese and others. Those who were enrolled include Youth Congress state secretary Shaji Nooranad, a ramban of the Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church and a retired bank manager.
