JUSTICE S.VAIDYANATHAN,
JUDGE, HIGH COURT, MADRAS.
This Article aims to provide a brief about “Legal Profession”, which is

“learned” has such a significant quality, which is not given to any other

profession, especially after independence, which has considerably damaged the
practice of advocacy in our Country.

from others. Legal Profession is the only profession, where professionals are
honored to be called as ‘Gentlemen’.
CO-ORDINATION BETWEEN THE BENCH AND THE BAR:
There are two wings of administration of justice, namely, the Bench and the
Bar and in order to arrive at a definite conclusion and render justice, both the
wings have to work together, within their limited parameters and legal ethics,
which means, “Usages and customs among members of the legal profession,
involving their moral and professional duties towards one another, towards
clients and the Courts; that branch of moral science which treats the duties which

professional brethren, and to his client”. In other words, in every field, there is a
