I appreciate the enthusiasm above but the opinion that law schools have failed in their experimentation stage is non sense, people should go to law schools and then to 3 yr law colleges they would come to know the difference and thereafter they will not make absurd arguments. regarding the teaching of accounting and finance the model of nlu jodhpur is most appropriate, the courses they teach are B.PSc.,LL.B.and BBA.,LL.B. and BSc.,LL.B. which is very appropriate model for the above problem since 5yr law is not limited to production house for corporate sector.

The last line is important. \"more non-legal education might actually produce better lawyers\". That is why hitherto after graduation, students were to take the law course of 3 years. In recent years, the elite law schools tilt towards the five year law format, the basic degree is forgotten. In the first two years, students do not learn a subject to the full extent as the time does not permit to specialise in it. With the result, a lawyer who must be future social activist, does not benefit from basic grounding through graduation. This leads to lawyers unable to shape and adapt their career progression and also lack of social awareness and responsibility on the part of law students. I sincerely feel that it is high time the regulator (BCI) and judiciary should revert back to the three-year format since the experimentation period is now over and we are regereting the three year law education format.
