ATTORNEY-General and Minister for Justice Kerenga Kua advised 78 new graduates from the Legal Training Institute yesterday to serve with integrity.
Kua, referring to the eighth graduation theme ‘Courage to serve with integrity’, said this was appropriate for the next generation of lawyers to take the right course in their careers.
He said many lawyers failed to serve with integrity which was not right, as lawyers played a pivotal role in creating an orderly society.
Kua told the lawyers that many people had different definitions for integrity but they had to be mindful of the conflicting influence that would surround them.
“You must have the courage, the strength of character and the resolution to stand up for what is right.”
Kua stressed that a lawyer’s role was important in decision-making and taking the nation forward but they should uphold it with honesty as well.
“You have a serious duty and responsibility to be able to resist the temptation to make quick money as nothing is more important than your reputation and your stand in the society,” he said.
Director Pauline Mogish, defining integrity, said: “According to the dictionaries, the word means the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles.”
She said these were the core values that would help form individual and personal character for future lawyers in this country. The National
