However there are ceratin challenges which are to be
looked upon to improve the education system in law
infrastructure and study environment:
The demand for improved infra and quality education in the field of law has
increased in the past ten years. However many universities and colleges have
worked on these areas so to nake themselves more promising.
The Government should provide more funds in order to
develop ,ore research projects which will enhance the skills of the students.
The infrastructure of the NLU’s producing more number of graduates are are much better and have improved with the
passage of time.
faculty members and teaching method: The faculties
involved in the teaching of law should change the teaching scenario from
teacher centric to student centric. The teaching mode should me more practical
by conducting more and more seminars and conferences. The law schools should
focus on employing good researchers and quality academicians but it sometimes
difficult because of some financial reasons.
As the advocates Act also provide that the law schools
should employee ful time faculties with adequate remuneration so that they
could also focus on quality teaching. However sometimes low remuneration also
discourage many new and budding lawyers from taking their career in academics.
internships compulsory: Internship comprises as
an essential component of the legal education, but is not mandatory in many law
colleges. However this phenomena should be changed and the law colleges should
mandate internships, as internship helps in gaining practical knowledge and
Career development Programs: Every law college should organize
career development programs to guide the students to decide there career
option. It is sometimes difficult for the newly law graduates to decide as to
which area is suitale for them. So for this reason it becomes important for
colleges to organize career development programs and seminars for students.
