ABOUT THE ONLINE CAPACITY BUILDING PROGRAM

Legal Education during the last decade in the country in general has spread to all corners and is the most sought after subject these days. The role played by Universities and colleges is appreciated for this growth.

The Faculty members who have been appointed to teach Law in the institutes /Colleges are equally excellent as most of them happen to be the products of reputed Universities/Schools of Law of India. However, due to rapid development of Science and Technology and changes in the allied areas, “Legal Research & Teaching Pedagogy” has taken a new dimension. The Latest report of the Ministry of Human Resource Development relating to higher education also emphasizes quality research.  Faculty members, who teach in these reputed affiliated institutions / Universities, face difficulties in methods of research and innovative teaching techniques. They are not able to keep pace with the rapid development taking place both nationally and globally. This at times works as a negative factor for accreditation by regulatory bodies and results in retardation of growth in research and its funding. Social justice is the first charge on our Constitutional order. It is a legacy we leave to the future generations without tarnishing its purity and power.

It is with this perspective that Saroj Lalji Mehrotra Centre of Legal Studies, S.S. Khanna Girls’ Degree College, Prayagraj and Droit Penale Group, Prayagraj are going to organize a twelve-day Capacity Building Programme on ‘Legal Research & Teaching Pedagogy’ as a new orientation for the benefit of University as well as College faculty members and research scholars in Law during August 22 – September 04, 2020. The objective of the programme is to deepen the knowledge of legal education, and develop practical skills and research capabilities through clinical legal education among young faculties and scholars.
