GURGAON, Sept 2:
President of the District Taxation Bar Association of Gurgaon, Naveen Gupta, on Saturday invited the Chief Justice of India, Mr Dipak Misra, to address the Gurgaon Bar Association.
Advocate Naveen Gupta met the Chief Justice on the sidelines of a symposium on the "Role of Legal Education in Nation Building".
The Chief Justice was very positive and asked him to a formal invite so that his office could consider the request to address the Gurgaon Bar members, according to Naveen Gupta.
Society of India Law Firms (SILF) and Menon Institute of Legal Advocacy Training (MILAT) held the symposium in New Delhi on Saturday to celebrate the 10th Law Teacher's Day.
The event was supported by the Bar Council of India.
Later in the afternoon, Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu was the chief guest at the award function.
President of the District Taxation Bar Association of Gurgaon, Naveen Gupta, also met the Vice President on the sidelines of the award function.
In his inagural address, Chief Justice Dipak Misra said the implementation of rule of law in a nation depends on the quality of legal education in a country.
Justice Misra said law schools are the hatcheries supplying legal professionals who act as sentinels for the implementation of rule of law.
He also said legal education is a science which inculcates in law students a sense of maturity and understanding of the society and moulds them to emerge as protectors of citizenry liberties.
Justice Misra appreciated the functioning of National Law Universities and said the institution has turned out to be the most successful exercise for enhancing the quality of legal education in the country.
“The introduction of five year law course has made legal education quite coveted in India. It has become imperative for law schools to take in account the changes taking place across the world as well as the contemporary issues in the society.
“Law schools must focus on developing amongst its students critical reflectiveness of the social, moral and political outlooks embedded in law,” Justice Misra said.
The CJI said it was the duty of all stakeholders to enhance the legal education by registering the importance of law schools and lauded Professor N R Madhava Menon, saying he has been influenced by the octogenarian in a subconscious way and his passion towards the discipline of law should be inculcated by everyone.
Prof Menon said the law schools were a neglected lot. He said even though there are 23 national law universities across the country and India need to do more for the legal education.
