‘Confluence 2017’ is a first-of- its-kind conclave to explore linkages between the legal industry and the academia, organised by National Law University Delhi (NLU Delhi) in association with the Society of Indian Law Firms (SILF) and the Bar Association of India under the auspices of University Grants Commission (UGC).
The conclave is being organised at Jacaranda, India Habitat Centre on 18th March, 2017 from 3.00 pm onward.
Coming at a time when both legal education and the legal industry are in need of fresh ideas and reforms, this conclave attempts to forge an understanding of the objectives of legal education and engage in a dialogue on the intersection between legal education and the legal industry in the context of the ever-changing landscape of business activities in India.
We hope to take a step towards imparting practice-oriented legal education and training to law students in collaboration with experts from the legal industry.
NLU, Delhi hopes to strengthen this mutually enriching relationship between the Indian legal industry and the academia by leading the dialogue on the next generation of reforms needed to create a brighter future for lawyers who are technically sound and socially-relevant.
