About the Daksha Dialogues Webinar
Topic: Daksha Dialogues Webinar is on Law and Legal Education in the Digital Age
Time: April 13, 2020 06:00 PM in India
Description: We are in the middle of a pandemic. What is at stake today, among other things, is also the lens with which we have viewed the world thus far. But a crisis, as they say, is also the best time for reflection and reform.
The shared language of law, policy and regulation can lead this reform. Is legal education ready to impart the requisite thinking and skills? Can the lawyers of tomorrow be trained to transition from disciplinary silos to holistic problem-solving?
What are some implications and opportunities of technology within the existing public law frameworks? How will this discourse influence legal careers in the future?
This discussion between Dr Madhav Khosla and Dr Ananth Padmanabhan will help you find answers.
