India will soon have five national level law institutes in order to train the faculty and upgrade their skills. Additionally, while addressing students at the Symbiosis Law College at Lavale Campus, M Veerappa Moily said that the two-year Masters of Law (LLM) degree course is in the process of being decreased to a duration of a year. Moily, the Union Minister of Law and Justice, was addressing a seminar on the reforms in legal education. He specifically remarked that there was a need for Indian lawyers to become global lawyers. The institutes will be centres of excellence and primarily focus on research and upgradation of faculty skills. These institutes will be called Institutes of Advanced Legal Studies and Research, said Moily.
He added, if a lawyer fails to complete his duties, the institute or the teachers should be blamed. Somewhere they have failed in this process. The institutes do not receive proper funding or the right faculty. Hence, the initiative of starting the five national level institutes will help train the faculty through various orientation programmes.
To make justice accessible to all, the Right to Justice Bill that is being drafted will mainly focus on the poorer sections of the society. Apart from that, a national law library which will be accessible to all citizens is also in progress. The ministry will establish an online e-learning network where citizens can access lectures and classes on legal subjects in real time. Law libraries will be set up in every district of the country.When S. B. Mujumdar, Founder-Director, Symbiosis International University pointed out that students complete their Bachelors in Law (LLB) the five year course in India and then go for a one year LLM abroad, Moily confirmed that they are working on decreasing the duration of the LLM degree course in India from two years to one year.
