Hon’ble Shri Justice Dipak Misra
Former Chief Justice of India


It is a matter of immense delight to be the Chief Participant in the Inaugural Ceremony of the Chettinad School of Law. At the very beginning, I am tempted to go to our ancients who have observed:

“Vidya Dadati Vinayam Vinayad Yati
Patratvad Dhanam Apnoti Dhanad
Dharmam Tatah Sukham”.

[Knowledge brings humility; from humility comes worthiness; with worthiness comes wealth and when one performs Dharmam, Happiness blooms]

You are required to be the innovative initiator while establishing this School of Law and the objective shall be “Law with urban pulse, nurturing students for life beyond our hedges”. Learning here shall focus on the skills and ways of thinking that address the routine issues of not only careers but far beyond them. It can be achieved only when all of you start to dream big, become bold and courageous, be engaged, and embrace the complexities and the nuances with enthusiasm. That should exit the status of School of Law.

Ladies and Gentlemen, it is an occasion to remember the predecessors of legal education for cultivating it with such dedication, devotion and good temperament, leaving the present generation a hard act to follow. All of you should strive and do your best to serve without fear or favour in discharging your duties to shape it even better. The rule of law manifests itself in a multitude of facts. Law exists in practice but it shall not only be practiced by the lawyers or dealt with by the adjudicators, but shall also be observed and respected by the community as a whole. The members of the faculty, being responsible for the growth of legal education, shall strive to impart, promote and further the Rule of Law as a fundamental basis of our society.
