It is a known fact that after students complete their legal education and start practicing law, staying in touch with whatever has been learnt in the law school and updated with the latest in law becomes imperative to every lawyer. Keeping this fact in mind, India has come up with its first full time law training centre known as the MK Nambiar Academy for continuing legal education. This concept is one of its kind and is designed to increase the standards of law professionals.
The main objective of this centre is to aid the practicing lawyers in continuing legal education. Training would be provided by the centre and they would get to anlayse the latest in Law. The centre is in Kochi but training programs for lawyers are chalked out at different locations in the country across the year, so that the Indian Law Practioners can take advantage of them wherever they are. To make this possible, law institutions like NLSIU Bangalore, KIIT, Bhuvaneshwar, National Law University and VM Salgaocar college of Law have come forward to host these training programs. These training progams are open for practicing lawyers aswell as law teachers and are going to be conducted for free.
In countries like US, CLE is mandatory, while in India the legal education training programs and centre is an initiative to join the bandwagon and enhance the law standards.
