Governor stressed for Study and Research on Legal matters

govjune14.JPGV.S. Kokje, Governor presided over the valedictory session of three week long Refresher Course for law teachers organized by Academic Staff College, H.P. University today at Summer Hill, Shimla.

Speaking on the occasion, Kokje said that earlier law seminars were very rare and learning law is just obtaining a law degree, but with the advent of law schools and other law institutions, education of law (legal education) is bearing fruits for the last few years. Lawyers coming out from these law schools are excelling in their professions, he added.

Kokje further said that more than 80% of legal cases are pending in rural areas in India. Legal teachers should be such people who can impart training apart from Global law, they should think about ground reality and produce such lawyers who could really help legally to rural areas.

He appreciated the organizers to organize such refresher course in law and hoped that practical solution would come out from the refresher course.

As many as 25 participants drawn from different States of the country like Rajsthan, Maharashtra, Kerala, Andhra Pradesh, Orissa and H.P. participated in the Refresher Course.
