“We had found old records dating back to 19th century from the Record Rooms of the High Court and District Courts. This prompted us to rejuvenate the High Court Museum as the Museum of Justice. The stories of freedom fighters, famous personalities and events lay hidden in these records and the High Court has decided to showcase them in the Museum of Justice and to present before the public the evolution of legal system of Odisha,” said the Chief Justice.

The museum will reflect not only the legal system of Odisha but also that of the entire country, he added.“We sincerely hope that the Museum of Justice would be a place of learning, research, co-mingling and teaching,” said the Chief Justice.
