Under the leadership of the Principal, an ambitious plan to revamp the whole curriculum was launched and through a process of deliberation and discussion, this ‘new vision for legal education’ was formulated and is slowly being brought into force. The central theme of this new vision is a shift from studying law primarily from textbooks, case law and statutes to experimental learning through direct engagement with problems of current concern to the society.
