Knowledge of the law is inevitable in today’s world. Law governs each and every aspect of our life. A brief glance at the modern history of India and one can easily understand the important role played by lawyers in our polity. It was the lawyers’ community, which led the freedom movement successfully. Most of our leaders and freedom fighters have been lawyers. Lawyers are social engineers, who steer the direction of law in any society. Lawyers are at the forefront whenever legal system faces any crisis. Legal education, thus, plays an important role in the establishment of law, order, and justice in any society. Legal awareness today is at its peak, thanks to the lawyers, who always keep a tight vigil on the arbitrary actions of authorities and remind people of their rights and freedoms. A pro-active judiciary has played an important role in safeguarding our individual as well as collective rights. As the complexities of life increase, so does the demand for legal professionals, primarily due to their superior domain knowledge and ability to effectively use the same to solve our problems. So come and be part of the movement called Legal education, which is undergoing transformation mainly because of its focus on learning rather than grades or rankings.

Wish you all the best in your endeavors.
