ABSTRACT
The author focuses on the responsibilities and powers of both bench and bar in the administration of justice. He reflects on the issue of economic demoralization in legal professions, judicial independence, and responsibilities of bench and bar to the public. He emphasizes on the need of a reform in the manner of selection and tenure of judges as well as the appointment of Judicial Commission, and suggests securing an all inclusive inte­gration of the bar by forming a united front.
