Oldest lawyer at 97

Kochi: Ninety-Seven-year-old P B Menon of Palakkad in Kerala has entered the Guinness World Record to become world’s oldest practicing lawyer. A civil lawyer, Menon beats the record held by Louis Triay of Gibraltar who died in February this year at 94. Menon is still as active in his professional work as he was in his younger days. Menon did his law from Madras Law College after completing his graduation from Government Victoria College, Palakkad in 1947. Initially he started practicing in Madras (Chennai) before relocating to Palakkad. Perhaps it was this self-gratification that made Mr. Menon stick to his practice as a civil lawyer even when many of his friends and colleagues chose to become judges.
