The judicial system is notorious for its tardiness in dispensing justice. This scene of a sleeping commoner in front of the Madras Law College adjacent to the Madras High Court seems to illustrate that.
As per a report in Times of India, nearly 300,000 cases were pending in the Madras High Court as of December 31, 2016.
Legal education started in Madras in 1884 as a course in Presidency College and became an independent institution in 1891. The Law College moved into the present premises in 1899.
The Madras High Court complex is one of the largest in the world and is a classic example of Indo- Saracenic style.
