  • President underlines the need to focus on research for Law Schools in his speech

    President Pranab Mukherjee on 8th August, 2015 while addressing the crowd of students, faculty and researchers among others in the two ­day national seminar organised by Confederation of Indian Bar in association with KIIT University "Our future lawyers must now be equipped with the necessary knowledge and skill to think and act globally." The honourable President also stressed on the fact that the country needs to attract large global investments in a rapidly changing world in Global Legal Seminar in Bhubaneswar.

    The concept of global legal education goes beyond international legal themes, he emphasized. Besides, “The Demographic shifts taking place in many countries around the world have brought issues involvingimmigration law and ancillary issues such as foreign property and inheritance flowing from wills and estates,” he said.

    “Legal education is of great significance in furthering the idea of a civilised nation­ state rooted in the Rule of Law,” he added. Hestated, “Exchange programmes, good student Teacher ratio, partnerships with foreign universities and legal clinics are some of the steps which contribute to globalising legal education.” Chief Justice H. L. Dattu  said in his inaugural address that, “changes in the legal system reflected the growing complexity of the society and India must produce world class professionals and academicians to compete globally.”
