Students and fresh Graduates of law often find a gaping mismatch between what they are taught in school and what the profession requires.
It ordinarily takes about 3 to 5 years for a student to become confident and independent to begin legal practice. It is almost like pursuing the course all over again. This lengthy gestation period is further reliant on your job profile and the interest of the mentor to impart technical know-hows.
Should this be an acceptable standard considering that the course is long enough as it is? Or should Legal education change with the times?
The answers to this question can be explored at the National Level Panel Discussion to be conducted by Co-Draft Academy of Law on the 23rdFebruary, 2019 at Chinmaya Heritage Centre.
The Panel is to include several Legal Luminaries such as Shri. Justice. T.S. Sivagnanam, Shri. Justice. N. Kirubakaran, Senior Advocates. Shri. Arvind P. Datar & Shri. Guru Kripa, Advocate. Smt. Chitra Narayan, along with renowned academicians Dr. Kamala Sankaran (VC TNNLU, Trichy), Dr. M. Gandhi (Dean VIT School of Law), Dr. C. Rajkumar (VC OP Jindal Global University), Dr. N. S. Santhosh Kumar (Director of Legal Studies, TN) and many more.
The event is expected to evaluate the existing curriculum in detail and further make recommendations to tackle the shortcomings of the course & to adapt to the present times.
The discussion is aimed to aid students of law to become successful legal practitioners and enumerate skills required for the same.
More than 500 students are expected to attend the discussion and avail the rare opportunity to interact with Legal experts in a first of its kind event in the city.
