Lawyers meet in Baglung
Around four hundred lawyers from across the country have gathered here for a three-day national conference to discuss agendas that Nepal Bar Association (NBA) would recommend to the Constituent Assembly to be formed after the election on April 10.
Chief Justice Kedar Prasad Giri inaugurated the conference amidst a program here on Friday. On the occasion, Giri said that the success of the proposed federalism would depend on the structure and power of the judiciary.
"The issue pertaining to the structure and the power of the judiciary under federalism is very sensitive. And the success of the federalism largely depends on the structure and the power of the judiciary," the Chief Justice said while inaugurating the national conference here.
The Chief Justice further said that attention should be given to ensure independence of the judiciary right from the time of drafting a new constitution.
Giri also asked participating lawyers to pass a resolution to make justice inexpensive, accessible and effective.
