About High Court Bar Association of Manipur

A complete judicial system is the corner stone of a civilized society. The judiciary and the Courts in any society are in a continuous process of change and transition. Manipur was an Independent State before the advent of British in Manipur. The Ruler i.e. the King of Manipur was the head of both judiciary and executive. The king, under the monarchy system, looked into the matter of administration of justice by establishing different Courts and empowering some wise and noble persons under him to take up judicial works for deciding disputes and cases according to uncodified customary laws, usages and the principle of natural justice. ...READ MORE


FAITH OF PUBLIC ON JUSTICE DELIVERY SYSTEM

Salam Rupachandra Singh, Advocate, Assistant Solicitor General of India, High Court of Manipur

Rule of Law is to be maintained by all the sections of people. However, if whenever, the terminology comes up, the Rule of Law revolves round the law making agencies, enforcing agencies, justice delivering agencies and judicial systems. Rule of Law is one of the fundamental principles of any civilized legal system as defined by Dicey. He attributed the three meanings to the Doctrine of Rule of Law as (i) Supremacy of Law, (ii) Equality before Law & (iii) Judicial Independence, Judge made constitution and pre dominance of legal spirit. There has been wide and elaborate discussion on the rights and duties of Indian citizens as provided under the Constitution of India. Though right and duties of citizens are unseperable from each other, there is tendency of demanding rights by people rather than looking into the duties cast upon the citizens. India may not rank in the top level about the citizen’s honesty, sincerity and duties to be shown towards their nation in the world. Even in ...READ MORE


LAWYERS AS PROFESSIONALS OR AS BUSINESS

Thoudam Manihar Singh, Advocate, High Court of Manipur

In any state there are different tribes or casts or communities. Only one community or tribe cannot live alone in a society.  Today’s scene of the present society reminds one of Wordsworth’s line, “The wealthiest man amongst us is the best, Plain Living and high thinking are no more.” It is forgotten that the essential difference between business and a profession is that while the chief end of business is personal gain, the main goal of profession is public service. I am proud and privileged to belong the profession of law. Every community of a state are to be united under the Rule of Law of the State. United we stand, divided we fall. There was a time when a lawyer was regarded with respect. And for good reasons, prominent Freedom Fighters belonged to the legal fraternity and played a leading part in the framing of our constitution. Gandhiji, Pandit Nehru, Dr. Ambedkar to mention just a few are Lawyers and gave up their practice to join the freedom movement and many of them ...READ MORE


REFORMS IN THE ADMINISTRATION OF JUSTICE: “BEATING THE BACKLOG”

Dr. Abhishek Singhvi, Member of Parliament
Senior Advocate, Supreme Court of India

It is a great pleasure and a special privilege to be present with you in Manipur on the 25th Birthday of the Bar Association. There are many firsts, some ironies and a few mysteries regarding this function. My visit to Manipur is a first for me and the dual attraction of seeing your beautiful state and interacting with the Bar was compelling and irresistible.  A chamber Junior of mine for many years is a Manipuri and I therefore keep getting stray and piecemeal tidbits of information about both your state as also the High Court and the Bar, which has constantly aroused my curiosity about this lovely State. Secondly, I am still trying to unravel the mystery of the 1972 to 1990 years when, despite the start of the Imphal bench in 1972, a separate High Court Bar Association was established as late as 1990. Thirdly, there is the irony that this is both an old and a young High Court with a middle aged Bar Association. Though the circuit Bench started here in 1972, the permanent bench was i ...READ MORE
