Post-Independence, Indian Legal Education gained prominence as the rule of law became the essential doctrine for the governance of the country which believed in the constitutional philosophy of marshaling the socio-economic transformation of the society.
India has a huge challenge to confront in promoting legal and judicial reforms so as to establish and maintain a rule of law in a society.
The role of law is constantly changing in the society and consequently, the active role of lawyers, academicians, and judges becomes important to meet the future challenge.
It is time to re-look and revamp the current system of legal education to meet the demands of the market.
Therefore, in the recent times, the government and the judiciary has ushered in plenty of reforms to revamp the laws governing and regulating various sectors in the Indian Legal System.
From working on the Insolvency & Bankruptcy Codes to the introduction of the Goods and Services Tax (GST), from holding the practice of Triple Talaq illegal to give the Right to Privacy a Constitutional Protection, the Indian Judiciary along with government has adopted a progressive approach at an unusually fast but cautious pace.
In an attempt to analyze the different reforms that have taken place in various areas of law from different perspectives, Institute of Law Nirma University, Ahmedabad is organizing a National conference on Justice Education to discuss recent law reforms and various legal contemporary issues which provides the first considered discussion on the recent reforms in the country across all the fields.
