New Delhi, Jan 15 (PTI) In a country like ours, where 30 crore population is below poverty line, the lawyers should help them without charging fees, Supreme Court judge A K Sikri today said here.

Speaking at 13th K K Luthra Moot Competition, held at Delhi University from January 13 to 15, Justice Sikri urged the law students, gathered from across the country and abroad, to work as litigant lawyers as legal system demands them.

"In this country, 30 crore population is below the poverty line and litigation lawyers should also help these poor persons without charging any fees as it will give you satisfaction in your life...

"While working as litigant lawyers, initially you may not earn like corporate lawyers but after some hard practice, you will earn good fees," he told the students.

In the competition, the first position was secured by George Washington University, USA, while Rajiv Gandhi University, Patiala, Punjab remained the runners up.

The moot court was organised by Delhi University's Campus Law Centre on the law of sedition and the propriety of death penalty as a punishment for the offence.

The three-day event had students from 75 colleges participating from across the country and abroad.
