EDITORIAL

DearReaders,

Corruption talk has always been there in our every day conversation for decades, but in the recent times it has become the central theme of all private and public debate, courtesy a few well- meaning crusaders, who decided to mobilize the people by preparing mixture of resentment , anger and helpless over rampant , shameless corruption.

The proposed remedy comprised of setting up a financially and politically independent anti corruption mechanism to probe corruption in high places.

A similar mechanism is now being thought of to regulate unethical practices in legal profession as well. There is nothing wrong with the idea, for neither can it be defined that legal profession has stayed free of malpractices when all else got corrupted , nor can it be argued that it's not time yet to start the cleansing.

However, What needs to be kept in mind is that legal profession is different from all other profession because it not only deals with the lives, property and reputation of the people, but is also an indispensable part of the justice delivery mechanism. Therefore, devising a remedy that in any way hinders the functioning of the lawyers by introducing room for frivolous complaint and consequent probes might further hamper the already lethargic legal process.

Once the effective safeguards are in place protecting the mechanism against misuse, there is no reason why lawyers should not be held accountable for their 'misdeeds'.
