The Ministry of Human Resources Development (HRD) and Ministry of Law and Justice (along with Ministry of Health) are at loggerheads over taking reigns of legal education in India. The present scena
Have no enough money to buy a car? You should not worry, just because that is available to take the business loans to resolve all the problems. Therefore get a consolidation loan to buy all you require.
The BCI is doing a lot of good these days..the legal profession is very different from others and so is the study curriculum..the BCI knows this and understands what students need and what the law schools should be..i think the PM should go with BCI.
Today the condition/ position of School of Law or Law colleges are measurabe and critical like the Secondary Schools in the hand of Management bodies. These bodies do not take Academic care as well as administrative care. The reason is that norms for appointment of teaching Staff is fixed by UGC and Management bodies are empower for appointments Syllabus is by Bar Council, Administration is in hand of Universities and release of payment is in hand of State Governments.Another issue of medium of languages i.e. Regional Language are imposing for teaching of Law. So, it is nothing but hurdles / barriers to provide legal education to student instead of make it easy to each and every individuals for understanding and attachment to law. Now here like Indian Medical Association, Association of Technical Education through out India and on International level only one authority or association should be setup by the HRD / Law Ministry who should dealt with all type of aspects instead of intereferance of various Authorities, Educational Instiutions in this field. This work should be done by Bar Council of India or a Seprate Law Commission should be established with qualified legal professional, Legal Accademeics, Judges of Supreme Court and High Court with Veto powers for each and every issue. In my view in this way legal education school can able to provide / understand the object of Law to a simple and ordinary man in India. It is the need of time because several laws are present but Citizens are aware of the laws. The BAR Council or Law Commission form for development of Law should also use a separate media or Channel on TV for each and every aspects to be noticed to public for each and every law.
The cause of legal education will only be helped if the HRD ministry controls it. The Bar Council of India should be confined to as an organized body of law practitioners which conducts a standardized Bar Exam just like the Institution of Engineers which also conducts its own version of certification examinations for people desiring to qualify as practicing engineers. Logically speaking, there is and should not be any role more than this for the Bar Council or the Ministry of Law and Justice in the legal profession.
