He taught them the manners of the court, such as bowing before the judge, talking to him respectfully even if they are not favouring their case, etc. and the nuances of an effective court practice. He further emphasized on the impact of attire of an Advocate on the Judge. He said that a neatly and adequately suited advocate gives a good impression on the judge and clients and polishes the overall personality of an Advocate.
Mr. Jaggi shared some anecdotes from his life to encourage and motivate students to pursue a career as an advocate. He said that a client is God for an Advocate, that he is his “Ann data” meaning ‘the provider’, and that Advocates shall learn to treat their clients accordingly.
He shared the ‘Art of courtroom’ with the students, that is, the manner of right conduct and right attitude with the judge in a courtroom. He emphasized on the use of “Brains over brawn”. He said that an Advocate shall learn to deal with things tactfully, instead of brawling. An act of repartee shall be favourable than arguing with the judge. He further gave some tips to students on practising court arguments. The session was then followed by Question- Answering Session, wherein different questions were taken up by the speaker.
