In simple terms, one might say that legal education brings awareness to people about their rights and duties. It can be called as a tool towards building public confidence, ethical value orientation, and momentum for further reforms.

Also, the 21st century is living in the midst of technological advances in the ongoing wave of the digital arena. In legal education, technological innovation and globalization has removed the constraints of home jurisdiction, opened the scope for multi-jurisdiction, and cross-border issues. Hence, the operation of legal practices has opened up  entirely new dimensions. Adding to that, legal professionals have also been exposed to the challenges of a globalized knowledge dissemination system and they are working hard to preserve the ethnic values.

As such, the responsibility of creating seasoned professionals in the contemporary times falls upon institutions such as ICFAI Law School. Established in the city Jaipur, ICFAI Law School believes in a world-class quality education. The school aims to develop a new generation of legal professionals with rich social values, ethical commitment, and a professional code of conduct through a comprehensive and contemporary body of knowledge.

Student-centric Teaching

At ICFAI Law School, efforts are made to strengthen the academic inputs, develop students’ personalities, and make them ready for the future. Training the students in Moot Court, Legal Aid Clinic, Guest Lectures, etc., the school equips students to gain practical experience, analytical reasoning, legal aptitude, and understanding bar and bench relationship. Hence, students learn good courtroom techniques, processes, presentations, communication skills, and discipline. Such a robust set up renders students independent before they plunge into the competitive professional environment and facilitates the students to imbibe the qualities of a professional lawyer.

The students are also trained to come up with glories such as winners of moot court competitions, various debates, mediations, judgment writing competitions, best researchers, speakers, articles, and so on. Mentoring is another process at the Law School, developing students to become confident, plan their future, and understand the expectations of the industry.
