For long in the history of the world, the concept goes as ‘law is an agency of social control’ with other social institutions including ethics, morality, religion and so on. In the most modern human experience, in advanced processes of governance, trade, social transformation, politics, justice delivery, technological development and the management of environment, the institution of law has emerged as the unparalleled establishment for the sustenance, effective performance and further development of all these processes. Every day innumerable instruments of law are born and scraped to meet the requirements of a successful operation of the mechanisms for regulation of personal, local, national, regional and global human affairs. Issues related to matrimony, family, kinship, society, polity, economy and inter-generational concerns: in particular, related to child bearing and raring, education and training, economic actions, environmental supervision, public administration, worldwide travelling, entertainment, national dealings, international interactions, planetary anxiety, human rights and dignity, no-war strategies, working of national and international legal institutions, conflict resolution fora and mechanisms, efficient justice delivery, prevention of starvation, alleviation of poverty and promotion of happiness. Responsibilities are spread over to all, viz, legislature, executive and judiciary. This all needs best of the human resource with capacity to act appropriately, and come with expected results. In turn is needs an effective legal education system with appropriate curriculum and result-oriented teaching and learning plans. The colossal challenges which the legal and justice system in India is presently openly facing are: inordinate delay in disposal of cases, piling up of cases in courts, increasing number of prisoners, accessibility to justice, the idea of satisfaction of consumers of justice, use of emerging technologies, questions related to indeterminate  jurisdictions, 

The New Education Policy 2020, in Clause 20.4., provides: “Legal education needs to be competitive globally, adopting best practices and embracing new technologies for wider access to and timely delivery of justice. At the same time, it must be informed and illuminated with Constitutional values of Justice-Social, Economic, and Political-and directed towards national reconstruction through instrumentation of democracy, rule of law, and human rights. The curricula for legal studies must reflect socio-cultural contexts along with, in an evidence-based manner, the history of legal thinking, principles of justice, the practice of jurisprudence, and other related content appropriately and adequately. State institutions offering law education must consider offering bilingual education for future lawyers and judges-in English and in the language of the State in which the institution is situated”.

The institutions imparting legal education in the country are the National Law Universities, Faculties of law in other general universities and a more than 1500 private law colleges. Now some affiliating law universities have also been established. Many more institutions are imparting special training in areas like alternative dispute resolution, judicial education, corporate law, public interest advocacy, competition advocacy, workers jurisprudence, human rights, emerging technologies and governance. In their respective programmes they now focus on producing general professionals, lawyers and judges, mediators, arbitrators, counselors,  adjudicators, agents, business executives, governance masters and skilled staff for institutions and industry, learned citizenry, trainers and mentors, authors  and, visionaries, and  path breakers and leaders. The success depends on diligence and action, i.e., how curriculum is designed, methodologies for teaching and learning are determined, issues are focused, outcome is evaluated and sensitization and incentivization is carried out. Moreover, how efficiently experiential learning programmes are executed and values are integrated in the overall process and functioning of the system.

In India, present legal education system and research practices are oriented to common law tradition of education, research advocacy, and judicial system. Presently, the institutional buildup is enormous. Quality and outcome require periodical evaluations with no break/recesses or complacence. There should be a formal accreditation as has been initiated in the form of NAAC, NIRF, etc. Besides, institutional and individual appraisals by themselves are really becoming common, especially for catchment. This all is very important, but there is a pressing need for organizing a Conference on Legal Education, as required by everyday developments in global context and, at home, as imperatives of New Education Policy 2020, to spotlight in particular on the Curriculum Development and Pedagogy.

The FIMT SCHOOL OF LAW is, therefore organizing a Three Day National Conference on Curriculum Development and Pedagogy for Legal Education in Contemporary India: Perspectives in National Education Policy 2020 on 1st September 2022 at FIMT CAMPUS, Kapashera, New Delhi-110037.
