Lawyers have every right to go on a strike, but their complaints must be made through the right channels and they must uphold the rule of law, according to senior advocate and former Rajya Sabha MP Fali S Nariman.

“If lawyers start breaking the law, who will uphold it?” asked Nariman at the valedictory address of Lawyers’ India 2006, a two-day national summit organised by the Bar Council of India at the YB Chavan Centre here.

He said every lawyer is a “law student for life” and that the learning process never ends because “law is a very difficult aspect of human activity.”

Justice KG Balakrishnan of the Supreme Court spoke on the need to create awareness about legal education.

Chief Justice of Bombay High Court Kshitij Vyas said speedier justice for the common man should be the long-term goal emerging out of the summit.
