Mangalore, September 25: The new office of Mangalore Bar Association office at the district court complex in Court Hill here was inaugurated on Thursday September 25th.
Uma M G, principal district and session’s judge inaugurated the office.
Addressing the gathering she said, “The association was started in 1881 and this is its 133rd year. From many years the lawyers were facing shortage of essential facilities and space, but still they did their work with humility.
“I would like to salute the women lawyers who were suffering the most due to lack of facilities. Now I am happy to see there is a separate room for women advocates. A big challenge of constructing Mangalore Bar Association’s own building lies ahead, and I hope it will happen within 2 years.”
A B Ibrahim, Deputy Commissioner of Mangalore said, “Mangalore Bar Association has produced a number of successful advocates for the country. This shifting to new premises will be useful for the lawyers here in improving their quality of work. It is a moment of pride for all of us. The government is ready to help in any upcoming projects that would help to improve the quality of the Mangalore Bar Association.”
In this occassion, vice-chairman of Karnataka Bar Council, B B Ravindranath Rai, MLC Ivan D’souza, Mangalore Bar Association president P Ashok Arigam, general secretary B Vittal Rai and members of Mangalore Bar Association were present.
