The National Conference of Lawyers has concluded with the adoption of 24-point declaration including cleansing and making judiciary corruption-free and enhancing capacity of new entrant legal practitioners.

President Bidya Devi Bhandari on Sunday had inaugurated the three-day 15th All Nepal National Lawyers Conference, 2078, organized by the Nepal Bar Association. The conference dwelt on several issues associated with legal practitioners.

The declaration has laid emphasis on the implementation of the report produced by a team led by Supreme Court Justice Hari Krishna Karki for elimination of anomalies and aberrations propping up in judiciary.

The declaration also urged the concerned authorities to address complaints regarding appointment of justices mainly based on political influence and also pay attention towards maintaining honesty to judicial dispensation, individual character and public prestige by ending favorism, nepotism, protectionism, power sharing and political influence.

As noted in the declaration, the Conference has called for the Council to set up an effective mechanism to monitor whether or not the code of conduct are adhered so as to reduce disputes raised in regard to the conducts of legal practitioners.

The conference has laid emphasis on the establishment of Lawyers' Foundation to develop capacity of new entrant legal practitioners and enhance expertise of the lawyers who are already in the profession.
