Views on the Legal System in India
Our legal system is based on British Common Law, Anglo-Saxon, and Adversarial System established by the then colonial powers. A well-organized system of judicial administration postulates a properly equipped and efficient Bar. The establishment of the Supreme Court of India in 1950 and Bar Councils at the National and State level, gave a new stimulus to the Indian legal profession.
In my personal opinion, to make suitable the existing justice delivery system in the existing socio-economic circumstances of our country, we have to simplify the laws and procedure of justice delivery system. It should be more victims oriented, than lawyer oriented.  Though I am of the strong opinion that dignity and decorum of the Courts should be maintained, less importance should be given to protocol, formalities.
The duo opines that people will respect the court and judicial system if they get effective, efficient, speedy and inexpensive justice. The current scenario also calls for sensitization of lawyers for the social cause. The legal education should be properly re-structured to equip students with professional and advocacy skills, than only class room and exam oriented teaching. In spite of some challenges facing justice delivery system, we cannot forget role of the Indian Judiciary. Though I appreciate proactive judicial activism when required, I feel judicial overreach is undesirable, and unconstitutional in the democracy.
E-Courts, they mention, is a step towards modernization in the Indian legal system. Modern India with information and communication technology surely needed this step. Ashok says, “Now, all courts are being connected at district and subordinate courts in the country, which will help in coordination between courts”.
Applying ICT in the judicial and legal process will increase efficiency, promote easy research, allow for easier information retrieval and will help in reducing inefficiency, inaccuracy, lack of transparency.. Technological revolution in the justice process and system, is a milestone.
Societal Responsibility
The firm provides free legal aid to poor people, and files Public Interest Litigations under the guidance of competent legal professionals as a part of its societal responsibility. Dr. Ashok also conducts workshops on “Clinical Legal Education” in various law colleges in the Maharashtra, besides, training young lawyers in advocacy skills through various programmes. To these young and budding lawyers, their advice is to, “Convert this profession into opportunity, be positive, believe in yourself and your inner voice, take a calculated risk, and try to provide  genuine justice to the people”
