Be intellectually honest: Ex-CJI to law students
New Delhi: Former CJI Dipak Misra on Saturday appealed to law students to develop intellectual honesty and compete among themselves to excel in their profession.
Speaking at Amity University, which organised International Moot Court competition, he asked the students not to imitate others and make efforts to create their own place in history. “Imitation is self-burial. Self- competition is always better and it makes people healthier. If you are not determined to create history then history will forget you,” he said.
Former SC judge Gyan Sudha Mishra raised the issue of human rights in view of huge influx of refugees in the country and said it should not be dealt with an idealist approach. She said a pragmatic view should be adopted to resolve the problem. Around 25 teams from various law colleges participated in the moot court competition which was won by Noida’s Symbiosis Law College.
