Law Teachers’ Day

The Society of Indian Law Firms (SILF) is the apex body of law firms in India with the aim of protecting, safeguarding and promoting the interests of Indian law firms in fast changing global legal environment. Menon Institute of Legal Advocacy Training (MILAT) is an educational society based in Trivandrum ( Kerala ) and is headed by Prof. N.R. Madhava Menon. MILAT activities include advocacy skills training, continuing legal education and legal research.

SILF-MILAT on September 10, 2011, organised the Annual National Symposium, at New Delhi . The topic of the seminar was Judicial Accountability: The Role of Law Schools. Legal luminaries who addressed the august gathering included Prof. Madhava Menon, Justice J.S. Verma, Lalit Bhasin, Justice N.N. Mathur, Prof. Mohan Gopal, Prof. V. Vijayakumar and Prof. Faizan Mustufa.

This was followed by SILF-MILAT Law Teachers' Award function, which was graced by Hon'ble Justice Altamas Kabir, Judge Supreme Court of India; Hon'ble Justice Deepak Mishra, Chief Justice, High Court of Delhi; Salman Khurshid, Minister of Law & Justice. Those who were conferred on the Legal Education Innovation awards included- Prof. A.T. Markose, First Director of Indian Law Institute; Prof. Shashi Kala Gurupur, Symbiosis Law School , Pune.

Prof. Ranbir Singh was given the Best Teacher Award.

Institutional Excellence Award was conferred on V.M. Salgaocar College of Law, Goa .

Speaking on the occasion, Justice Deepak Misra likened Prof. Madhav Menon with a filament of the bulb, which spreads illumination for the benefit of people.

Recalling his student life, Justice Altamas Kabir said that 50 years ago law was not taken seriously as a subject or as a profession. Most of the students opted law just because they wanted a degree, others were doing to get promotion in the job. They were there by chance and not by choice. Whereas, today a tremendous change has come in the subject and the profession of law, where people are opting it by choice. The emergence of high profile law schools is the proof of that.

However, Justice Kabir further said that inspite of few serious students in those days, teachers were of high quality who not only taught the subject but also inculcated values and human dignity among their students.
