Areas of Practice and key achievements:

My views on Legal Education in India - Yes, there has been a qualitative decline in legal education now with many private law colleges cropping up. Further, not many experienced teachers are around to make the students understand the nuances of law. Again, with the acts being more than 100 years old, only amendments have been made over the years whereas with the changing scenario, new acts should be incorporated with retrospective effect. The law in India is too liberal. Further, legal education can be improved if more practical courses are added to the curriculum. Young law students should thrive to learn more through interactions because internships don’t prove too useful. Yes, legal literacy should be added as a subject in schools also
