Conference on RE-INVENTING LEGAL EDUCATION IN INDIA ; 23rd March 2019

Pravin Gandhi College of Law, Mumbai


The model of legal education in India is oriented to the requirements of the litigating lawyer and judiciary making advocacy skills and sound theoretical knowledge the main areas of focus. Institutions imparting legal education have been experimenting with curriculum and teaching methods with the objective of bridging the gap between classroom teaching and legal employability without diluting the standards of legal education. Bar–bench–academia linkage, clinical and experiential legal education, industry–academia partnerships, community partnerships and outreach programmes are some of the bridging responses limited to addressing certain facets of the multifocal problem. The reforms in legal education have been oriented towards transforming general legal education into a professional suited to the current market demands


Academicians and those pursuing doctorate programs in any field, research scholars, lawyers, educationalists, policy makers in the field of legal education and students of law are invited to submit their papers on the given sub-themes or on allied topics. The papers will be subject to a blind peer review committee for selection. Students from any field can attend the conference.
