A judge, despite being human, discharges the duty of divinity, said Chief Justice D H Waghela.

He was addressing a gathering of 151 newly-recruited civil judges at the Karnataka Judicial Academy (KJA) on Wednesday.

Justice Waghela said the judges must cultivate confidence in imparting justice within the legal framework.

“The first step in a judge’s life is to get rigorous training at the academy. Later, necessary equipment, guidance and knowledge will guide you throughout your legal career,” he added.

Justice N Kumar, president of the academy,  said at the very outset, a judge should be against discrimination.

People have abundant confidence and faith in the judiciary because of the judges they deal with, he said.

Justice Ashok Hinchigeri and Justice B V Nagarathna were present on the occasion.
