'Legal education changing with times'

Mysore, Oct 5, DHNS

As many as 150 students graduate from JSS Law College

''The legal education in our county in tune with the times has changed,'' opined Justice M N Rao, Chairman of National Commission for Backward Classes.

He was delivering the Graduation Day address at the JSS Law College in the city on Tuesday.

Earlier, the syllabus prescribed for law course suited the requirement to practise law in all Courts. However, he said that new subjects such as Business Law, Cyber Law, Intellectual Property Rights and International Trade are also being taught apart from core subjects such as Constitutional Law and Administrative Law.

He opined that admissions to law colleges should be on the basis of aptitude exhibited by aspirants. Students from law colleges are in great demand, he added.


Observing the radical changes that have taken place in the role of law, Justice Rao said that our legal system reflects our democratic traditions. While a few persons want to change the legal system and deviate from Anglo American Jurisprudence, he warned that any attempt to change the present system abruptly will result in chaos and disaster.

He said that before any change in the system is thought of, there must be extensive research and  a consensus should be obtained from all sections of the society.

Justice Rao stated that judicial review has a played pivotal role in social transformation. Whenever a welfare legislation has been struck down by the judiciary, the judges are criticised.

Graduation

The third batch of students passing out of the college include eight LL M graduates, 14 LL B graduates and 50 B A L graduates and 68 LL B graduates.

Vice Chancellor, Tamilnadu Ambedkar Law University, Prof V Vijayakumar, Sri Jagadguru Deshikendra Swamiji, CEO, Al Mur Group, Dubai, Sheikh Mohamed Al Mur Mugren, Educational Advisor, Al Mur Group, Dr Gisela were present.

Toppers

While Arpitha S topped the final year LL M, George Pothan Poothicote and Jothan Sangi Tlau were ranked first and second in the LL B course. Snigdha S, Vinutha K and Swetha J were ranked the top three in B A L course.

The toppers in B A L were Anindita Roy, Roshni B M and Anindita Sudipa Chander.
