We at ILS believe that the mainstream, traditional Legal Education Institutions produce legal professionals for most of the legal fields in India. It is thus, important to strengthen them and reform the curriculum to cater to these fields in a better manner.

The workshop aims at bringing together academic scholars, senior professionals from legal field, policy makers, regulatory authorities and members of the Bar and the Bench to deliberate, discuss and guide on formulation of law curriculum to meet the needs of legal profession and ends of justice.  The workshop would witness an array of backgrounds and perspectives of its contributors in determining the parameters of curriculum development, teaching learning methodologies and evaluation pattern.

Structure of the Workshop: The workshop is spanned over a period of 2 days with sessions by experts deliberating and discussing on principles of drafting of Law Curriculum, effective law teaching and objective evaluation.
