New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi today inaugurated the International Lawyers Conference-2023 at Vigyan Bhavan in New Delhi. Prime Minister Modi also addressed the lawyers at this time. Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that the International Lawyers Conference also symbolizes the spirit of Vasudhiva Kutumbakam. Lawyers played a great role in the freedom struggle of the country. Father of the Nation Mahatma Gandhi, the country’s first President and Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru and the founder of the Constitution Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar were also lawyers. The Bar Council of India organized an International Lawyers’ Conference on ‘Emerging Challenges in Judiciary’ on 23rd and 24th September.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that legal fraternity plays a big role in building any nation. In India, the Judiciary and the Bar have been the custodians of the country’s judicial system for years. Prime Minister Narendra Modi said the experience of legal professionals has served to strengthen the foundation of independent India. Today, the world’s confidence in India is increasing and the Indian judiciary has a big role to play in this. Just a day ago, the Parliament of India passed a law for 33 percent reservation for women in Lok Sabha and Vidhan Sabha. The Nari Shakti Bandana Act will give new direction and strength to the development of women’s leadership in India.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that the Judiciary and the Bar Council of India have always been the custodians of law in our country. Whether it is cyber-terrorism, money laundering, artificial intelligence, creating a global framework for cooperation on various issues is not just about governance or government. For this, the legal framework of different countries must be linked with each other. Dispute settlement through panchayats has existed in India for centuries. The Government of India has also enacted an Arbitration Act to streamline this informal system.
