Watch | 'A Great Name in Law and a Man of Humour': Dushyant Dave Remembers Soli Sorabjee

Former attorney general Soli Sorabjee passed away on April 30 at the age of 91.

Dushyant Dave, himself a leading lawyer and former president of the Supreme Court Bar Association, has said Soli Sorabjee, who passed away on April 30 at the age of 91, will be remembered as one of India’s greatest attorney generals. He said Sorabjee was one of the biggest names in the Indian legal profession and looked up to by all lawyers.

In a 15-minute interview to Karan Thapar for The Wire, Dave spoke of Sorabjee’s passion for jazz, his talent for mimicry and his spontaneous but never hurtful repartee with heart-warmingly illustrative anecdotes.

This is a 15-minute interview with Karan Thapar which assesses both Sorabjee’s contribution to the legal profession and the many important cases he was a part of and also brings alive Sorabjee’s personality, humour and capacity to charm people, including judges who disagreed with him.
