EDITORIAL

Dear readers,

Legal education is a critical aspect of legal profession, for lawyers are only as good as their training in law.

The debate about who should have the direct control, supervision and regulatory powers in the arena of legal training is to a large extent pointless because the profession must be allowed to control the professionals so that the education could be consistent with the need of the profession, and the new entrants are not left trying to bridge the gap between theory and practice on their own cursing their deficient training at the law school.

True, a large number of lawyers are joining the corporate world, but the law, quite obviously, operates outside the courtrooms, but is given effect inside. So, no matter where a lawyer goes to work everyday -- a court or a plush corporate office -- he has to be alive to the law and the practices in the courtrooms. It is his comprehensive training in law in accordance with the practices and the needs of the day that give him the required expertise.

The control of legal education must remain in the hands of the Bar Council of India with suitable changes for being effectively responsive to the need of the legal profession.
