0409-18/1826/01: Dr RK Singh and Dr Parameswaran represented GNLU in the Conference of Vice-Chancellors of NLUs on 'Legal Education Reforms'

Dr RK Singh (Dean, Faculty & Academic Affairs) and Dr K Parameswaran (Associate Professor of Law) participated (represented GNLU) in the Conference of the Vice-Chancellors of National Law Universities on ‘Legal Education Reforms’ held on 1-2 September 2018, organised at the Indian Law Institute, New Delhi. It was organised by the Supreme Court of India in an attempt to initiate a national level dialogue among law academics on contemporary issues and challenges of legal education, with special focus on legal education reforms. It was the first ever event of its kind.

GNLU also submitted a paper on how it proposes to make GNLU a world class Law University with year-wise planning beginning with 2018-19. The title of the paper was: ‘A Blueprint to Make GNLU a World Class Law University’.

The Conference had four sessions on the following broad themes:

(1)  Legal Education in India: Issues and Challenges.
(2)  Exploring Research Domains Opened up by Constitutional Change and its Impact on Legal Education.
(3)  Innovative Methods of Teaching and Sharing of Best Practices.
(4)  Necessary Reformative Steps for Improvement of the Legal Education.

The Supreme Court of India deserves big applauds for having conceived this Conference on the much needed theme of legal education reforms, and GNLU is quite confident that this academic event will help enhance the mission of imparting high quality legal education and, of course, shaping reforms in legal education in India.
