Bar Council announces proposed directions for reform in legal education
The Bar Council of India is pleased to announce its note on proposed directions for reform of legal education in India.
The quality of Indian legal education belies the tremendous potential that the Indian legal profession can unleash in the years to come. While India continues down its path of growth, it is essential that Indian education is reformed so that ultimately the Indian legal profession is strengthened to take on the challenges of the 21st century.
Further, Indian legal education cannot be value creating only for “top of the pyramid” law graduates but must have stringent minimum standards so that it is transformational for all law students, irrespective of the law school that they choose to graduate from.
