Legal Education In India Rejuvenated

Legal education in India is passing through a transformation age. From mere academic nature of the education, Indian educational system is making a shift towards professionals, vocational and practical nature of education. This is a good sign as mere academic nature of education would not help us in the long run.

This is also evident from the fact that a majority of graduates are not fit for professional purposes. Naturally Indian companies are facing shortage of skilled workforce to manage skilled works. Thus, technical education and skill development in India need to be considered by Indian government on a top priority basis.

This is a mammoth task that Indian government cannot achieve on its own. Bar council of India has to play a pro active role in this regard. Similarly, a public private partnership between Indian government, BCI and private companies/individuals is also need of the hour.

However, there are very few private players who are good at providing qualitative legal education in India and abroad. Perry4Law Techno Legal Base (PTLB) of Perry4Law is one such techno legal institution that is providing world class techno legal education, courses, trainings and skills development. Perry4Law Techno Legal ICT Training Centre (PTLITC) provides highly specialised and domain specific techno legal education in India.

PTLB is also managing the exclusive techno legal institute for lifelong learning in India (TLILLI). The TLILLI manages many crucial techno legal lifelong learning courses and continuing legal education in India.

All these courses, education, training and skills development are provided by the PTLB e-learning platform in an online environment. Interested professionals can enroll for these courses from any part of the world without leaving their offices or homes.

Clearly legal education in India has been rejuvenated by the collective efforts of stakeholders like BCI, PTLB and Indian government. However, more and more private participation is needed for reforming the legal education sector of India that is presently plagued by widespread corruption.
