Project Complete Lawyer, an initiative of Cochin Institute of International Arbitration (CIIA) and Law and Justice Research Foundation (LJRF), was inaugurated by Justice P.B. Suresh Kumar, Judge, High Court of Kerala. Adv Joseph John, the Chairman, Bar Council of Kerala, delivered a special address on the topic 'Young Lawyers in Kerala, Challenges and Opportunities', in an online webinar presided over by Adv. Johnson Gomez, Chairman, Project Complete Lawyer and Director of Cochin Institute of International Arbitration. Adv Prasant V.G, Partner of Jaisagar Associates, Bangalore, offered felicitation. Mr Sandeep C, Convenor, Project Complete Lawyer and Joint Secretary of Law and Justice Research Foundation welcomed the participants and Ms. Amina SM., Student Co-Ordinator, Project Complete Lawyer extended vote of thanks.

The Project is developed from the speeches and writings of Late Prof Dr N R Madhava Menon, the father of modern legal education. It is intended to reduce the incubation period of law students in their transformation as a lawyer. The total duration of the program is 7 years, in the case of 5-year LLB stream and 6 years in the case of a 3-year LLB stream. The passion to pursue a legal career as an advocate and as a Judge in the higher judiciary, are considered the criterion for selection to the training program. The training of the first batch of 25 students will commence on 1st September, 2021.

The main focus of the training is as follows:

  1. It will not be on teaching law, but on assisting the students to find the law. The project would use the database of 'Live Law', with which the Project is partnering.
  2. Once the law is found, the training offers assistance to interpret the law.
  3. They will be trained to develop, various soft skills necessary for advocacy and to practice in other arenas of the legal service industry.
  4. The trained students will work as community lawyers during their initial period, so as to enable them to get sufficient opportunity to handle human problems and to solve them. It will also be a service to the society, among other things.

The project is expected to take one large step forward, in achieving the constitutional goal, to render justice- social, economic and political to all.
