Having realized that the aspects such as technology, globalization and economy have transformed the legal education provided in the country, Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said that there needs to be super-specialization in the field of law to move concurrently with times.
Addressing the gathering at the inauguration ceremony of Karnataka Lingayat Education Society’s new campus of the Law College, the minister said that now the need to focus on concepts of legal education like criminal and civil suit law are not as urgent as they were earlier.
Furthermore, the minister elaborated on the skills of a successful lawyer and said that in order to become one, aspirants must enhance their traditional concepts as the traditional concepts will hardly be used in the days to come. Super-specialisation will replace the traditional approach.
Jaitley said that the effect of globalization can be reversed which will be ‘counterproductive’ for the legal education.
