Law needs to operate humanely: CJI

New Delhi, 14/11: The Chief Justice of India N V Ramana on Sunday said primarily the ability of constitutional courts is to function with absolute independence and necessary boldness in the face of adversity — which defines institution’s character — and emphasised “the law needs to operate humanely”, and the state judiciary has to be sensitive to people’s problems and their practical difficulties.



The Chief Justice was speaking at the valedictory ceremony of the pan-India legal awareness and outreach campaign organised by National Legal Services Authority (NALSA).


He said, “The State judiciary, being closely associated with the people, has to be sensitive and aware about their problems and practical difficulties. In particular, it needs to be cognizant about both victims and as well as accused and must facilitate their emergency needs.”
