About the Conference by FIMT
For long in the history of the world, the concept goes as ‘law is an agency of social control’ with other social institutions including ethics, morality, religion and so on. In the most modern human experience, in advanced processes of governance, trade, social transformation, politics, justice delivery, technological development and the management of environment, law has emerged as the unparalleled establishment for the sustenance, effective performance and further development of all these processes.
Every day innumerable instruments of law are born and scraped to meet the requirements of a successful operation of the mechanisms for regulation of personal, local, national, regional and global human affairs. Issues related to matrimony, family, kinship, society, polity, economy and inter-generational concerns.
Responsibilities are spread over to all, viz, legislature, executive and judiciary. This all needs best of the human resource with capacity to act appropriately, and come with expected results. In turn is needs an effective legal education system with appropriate curriculum and result-oriented teaching and learning plans.
The colossal challenges which the legal and justice system in India is presently openly facing are: inordinate delay in disposal of cases, piling up of cases in courts, increasing number of prisoners, accessibility to justice, the idea of satisfaction of consumers of justice, use of emerging technologies, questions related to indeterminate jurisdictions,
The New Education Policy 2020, in Clause 20.4., provides: “Legal education needs to be competitive globally, adopting best practices and embracing new technologies for wider access to and timely delivery of justice. At the same time, it must be informed and illuminated with Constitutional values of Justice-Social, Economic, and Political-and directed towards national reconstruction through instrumentation of democracy, rule of law, and human rights.
The curricula for legal studies must reflect socio-cultural contexts along with, in an evidence-based manner, the history of legal thinking, principles of justice, the practice of jurisprudence, and other related content appropriately and adequately. State institutions offering law education must consider offering bilingual education for future lawyers and judges-in English and in the language of the State in which the institution is situated”.
The FIMT School of Law is, therefore organizing a Three Day National Conference on Curriculum Development and Pedagogy for Legal Education in Contemporary India: Perspectives in National Education Policy 2020 at FIMT Campus, Kapashera, New Delhi-110037.
