Be in­tel­lec­tu­ally hon­est: Ex-CJI to law stu­dents

The Times of India (Mumbai edition) - - TIMES NATION -

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.
