The International Judicial Conference
Justice ensures peace, harmony, tranquility, progress and rule of law in a society, lack of which leads to chaos, upheavals and disharmony which can ultimately lead to the falling apart of the society or a civilisation. Dispensation of justice forms a cardinal principle of all the constitutions of the civilised nations and recognised as such by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights adopted by the United Nations. That is the reason why judiciary, charged with the responsibility to administer justice according to the law of the country, is held in the highest esteem and considered as the most sanctimonious institution of the state. As protector of the fundamental rights of the citizens and custodian of the constitution, the judiciary makes sure that all the state institutions function within the parameters of the constitution and the individual liberties are not encroached upon or denied to the citizens.
