Direction (Q. 1 - 5) : Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below it Certain words/ phrases are printed in bold to help you locate them while answering some of the questions.
This is an age of unprecedented 'judicial activism.' This activism has, at times, curbed executive actions, earning popular approbation. In a democratic set-up, nobody, however influential, can act arbitrarily. The rule of law much be respected so that the citizen knows where he stands. To ensure this, courts have to uphold and protect citizens' rights and interests. People approach the courts anticipating speedy dispensation of justice. Delays in the judicial process cause them frustration and disappointment.
An independent judiciary is a prerequisite for upholding the rule of law and protecting the rights of citizens that are guaranteed by the Constitution. That may not be easy. Judges alone cannot dispense speedy justice. They must have the cooperation of the legal community and the government.
A further complication for judges is that they cannot publicly comment on their judgments. They also have to ensure that the judiciary is not affected by political interference, especially the machinations of corrupt politicians.
The judiciary has to ensure that its credibility remains intact in the public perception. If it is to be successful in doing so it needs all the help it can get, especially because good judges usually do not go public to defend themselves.
The legal fraternity has to play a prominent role in building the image of the judiciary by following, if necessary, selfimposed codes of conduct. Lawyers, for instance, should not cast aspersions on the impartial conduct of presiding officers of courts.
They should also not misuse safeguards provided by a plethora of legal codes, which help them protect the interests of their clients.
They must ensure that their clients are not allowed to delay legal proceedings and subvert the ends of justice. Lawyers must assist judges to dispose cases fast.
It is common in landlord-tenant disputes, for instance, to ask for 'stays' and delay judicial proceedings. If lawyers refuse to be complicit in such dilatory tactics they would gain in terms of public estimation and enhance the reputation of the judiciary.
