National Law School of India University from its very beginning has been involved in organizing U.G.C. – Sponsored Refresher Courses for law teachers aimed to advance the quality of teaching and research in all branches of law both at the graduate and post-graduate levels. The duration of the courses varied between one week to three weeks and the subject areas extended to substantive and procedural courses.
On line with the above, the present Refresher Course will look at the syllabus, study materials and teaching methods of Constitutional Law, International Law, Environmental Law, Human Rights Law, Contract Law, Business Law and Arbitration Law. Updating recent developments in knowledge and skills on the laws as well as emerging tools and techniques for better teaching/learning of these subjects will be the focus of the course.
About the Theme for 2019. The modern legal education has become very challenging since advent of the information available from all dimensions through technology. It has become very crucial for the teachers to adopt new methods and strategies to teach students of law so that they can differentiate between the irrelevant information available on the Google that may not always be correct and the authentic sources of information; it can confuse the students if they are not guided properly.
