National legal e-Library to come up for law students

In order to cater to the needs of law students, their colleges and the professionals, the Ministry of Law and Justice is going to start a national legal e-Library very soon.

The project will be a boon for the students, professionals as well as researchers willing to have case laws, citations and other details on vocabularies.

“The scope of this programme is creation and management of the national legal e-library for 933 schools in India, Bar Associations and government Legal departments, and meet the needs of academics, librarians, students, faculty and young practitioners. It aims to provide a practitioner’s view and a comprehensive understanding of core subject areas of law,” the sources said.

The project is likely to begin from August 15 this year.

Modern features

According to sources, the project will have all modern tools like easy access, result clustering, flexibility display and output options, interoperability, smart indexing and powerful source selection, besides having other features.

The project has come as Minister of Law and Justice M Veerappa Moily proposed the need for the formulation of a national legal e-library for students and practitioners of law on December 6, 2009, during his meeting with vice-chancellors of law universities and colleges across the country.

The library facility will provide campus-wide access with internet protocol authentication.
