We compute extreme values of the Riemann Zeta function at the critical points of the zeta function in the critical strip. i.e. the points where $\zeta'(s) = 0$ and $\mathfrak{R}s< 1.$. We show that the values taken by the zeta function at these points are very similar to the extreme values taken without any restrictions. We will show geometric significance of such points.

We also compute extreme values of Dirichlet L-functions at the critical points of the zeta function, to the right of $\mathfrak{R}s=1$. It shows statistical independence of L-functions and zet function in a certain way as these values are very similar to the values taken by L-functions without any restriction.
