“Love for Tamil and proficiency in English would take you places,” he said, while delivering a special address in the enrolment function organised by the Bar Council of Tamil Nadu and Puducherryhere on Saturday. This apart, every lawyer must possess three qualities – hunger for knowledge, hard work and professional integrity. These three qualities would definitely give you all a successful career,
Justice Ramasubramanian said.
Felicitating the advocates, Justice N Kirubakaran cautioned them of a section of lawyers who involve in kangaroo courts and other criminal activities. “There are two groups of advocates. One practices before courts and the other before police stations. The second category is the sin to the profession,” he said.
Pressing the need to be well-versed in English, Justice Kirubakaran said, “English is the passport to the entire world.”
On professional ethics, he said, “In your attempt to gather wealth you must not exploit your clients. You are entitled fee for the service you have rendered but not a share in the benefits ordered to your clients.”
Justice M M Sundaresh and Justice V Bharathidasan suggested the young advocates to work under a senior for at least for three years to learn the trade.

Earlier, delivering his presidential address, chairman of the council P S Amalraj informed the gathering that the council is taking steps to provide stipend to young lawyers in their initial years to help them stay in the profession. Senior advocate and member representing Tamil Nadu in Bar Council of India S Prabakaran said lawyers should be students life-long and never cease to learn.
