The 2023 International Lawyers’ Conference was opened by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday at Vigyan Bhawan in New Delhi. Important luminaries, such as Union Law Minister Arjun Ram Meghwal and Chief Justice of India (CJI) DY Chandrachud, attended the inauguration ceremony.
“I congratulate the Supreme Court of India for providing operative portions of the judgments in the litigant’s language,” Modi continued. Modi went on to say that the government is sincerely attempting to create laws in plain English and Indian languages.
“The Indian government believes that there should be two ways to create laws. He told the mostly legal audience that one draft would be in the language they were used to. “The second draft will be written in a language that the average person in the country can understand. He ought to regard the law as his own.
According to Modi, it used to be customary to write legislation in a convoluted manner.
He praised the legal community and stated, “The courts and the Bar have long been custodians of India’s justice system, noting that they played a crucial role in India’s independence. The prime minister noted that attorneys included Mahatma Gandhi, B. R. Ambedkar, Jawaharlal Nehru, and Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel.
He noted that the meeting is taking place at a time when India has experienced multiple significant events.
He remarked that the approval of the women’s reservation measure in Parliament will provide women-led growth fresh direction and vigor. He also discussed the success of the Chandrayaan mission at the G20 Summit.
India is striving to become a developed nation by 2047, and in order to do it, he said, it needs a solid foundation of an impartial justice system. The increasing confidence of the world in India is largely due to impartial justice, Modi continued.
In the meantime, CJI Chandrachud asserted that aspirating to a future in which countries, institutions, and most crucially, people, are open to engage with one another is not a utopian ideal.
“Each of us has a great deal to learn from various legal systems, viewpoints, and most importantly from one another. We shall see some of the brightest minds over the next two days, including judges from all over the world, my own Supreme Court and High Court colleagues, international practitioners, and legal scholars, the CJI added in his presentation.
Union Minister for Law and Justice Arjun Ram Meghwal highlighted the Indian legal system’s support of a favorable economic environment throughout his speech.
The Bar Council of India will be the host of the International Lawyer’s Conference 2023, which will take place on September 23 and 24 and have as its theme “Emerging Challenges in Justice Delivery System.” This conference’s main objective is to offer a forum for in-depth discussions and debates on a variety of legal topics of both national and international significance.
