CJI Advocates Extending Higher Legal Education to Remote Areas

Chief Justice of India Justice D Y Chandrachud Friday said university education in law should be extended to remote rural areas so that students from small towns are not deprived of the opportunity to become lawyers.

Speaking at the inauguration event of the Dr Rajendra Prasad National Law University here, Chandrachud said, “Technology has given us the ability to reach out to far-flung students. Despite developments in legal education, the contemporary legal education system favours only English-speaking urban children.”

He said, “A survey conducted on diversity in five law universities shows that children from diverse backgrounds are unable to get admission in these universities because of not being able to speak English.”
