Justice Chandru: After 10 years as a Senior Advocate, I felt that I was making a lot of money but something was wanting. The more money you make, you may compromise in basic principles. In the sense that your own body language, your style of advocacy may change. As an independent lawyer, the client believed you and gave you the brief. Whereas when you are a Senior Advocate, you are engaged by lawyers who judge you on the basis of your performance. Success became a criterion for judging you.
I also decided that my full energy was not being made use of. Thought I used to have 5 to 6 cases per day, this would take not more than one or two hours. What is to be done for the rest of the day?
Before I became a senior lawyer, Justice Krishna Iyer told me that I should become a judge. Justice Sathiadev told me that, “Don’t think money is everything. There are a lot of things that need to be changed in the judiciary.
