Law
Ajay Majithia
Advocate | Supreme Court of India
[ 28 years Experience ]

Law is a system of rules that are created and enforced through social or governmental institutions to regulate behavior. Law is a system that regulates and ensures that individuals or a community adhere to the will of the state. State-enforced laws can be made by a collective legislature or by a single legislator, resulting in statutes, by the executive through decrees and regulations, or established by judges through precedent, normally in common law jurisdictions. Private individuals can create legally binding contracts, including arbitration agreements that may elect to accept alternative arbitration to the normal court process. The formation of laws themselves may be influenced by a constitution, written or tacit, and the rights encoded therein. A lawyer's responsibilities as a representative of clients, an officer of the legal system and a public citizen are usually harmonious. Thus, when an opposing party is well represented, a lawyer can be a zealous advocate on behalf of a client and at the same time assume that justice is being done.

"After doing my schooling from Govt Model School Chandigarh, I did my LLB from Symbiosis Law School, Pune. I started my practice at the Trial Port of Gurugram & Faridabad and later, started practicing at Supreme Court & Delhi High court, New Delhi.

Being a judge is one of the most important functions that human beings can have, why? Because being a judge implies giving each person his own, as the Romans used to say, specifically Ulpiano. The judge is the director of the process, modernly is no longer an arbitrator and neither has a neutral position, is no longer the stone judge who was in antiquity but instead the judge has to have empathy, has to put him or herself in place of each part and try to solve their problems. The solution of the problems is the first function of the judge because we take into account that justice is the last step to which citizens arrive to solve their problems, then the importance of the function of the judge.
