Contribute to the well-being of society, says Supreme Court justice at NLIU convening
Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh): Supreme Court Justice Justice SK Kaul urged law students to contribute to the welfare of society while arguing that legal education not only benefits the person acquiring it, but also has a direct impact on society.
Judge Kaul addressed the 11th graduation ceremony of the University of the National Law Institute (NLIU) as the guest of honor on Friday. The judge is also the visitor to NLIU. The Chief Justice of the High Court and Chancellor of the NLIU, Judge Ravi Malimath, was the guest of honor.
The NLIU organized its convocation for doctoral, MSCLIS, LLM and BA, LLB students after a three-year hiatus. A total of 634 diplomas were awarded to graduates of the 2018, 2019 and 2020 promotions, of which 45 students obtained gold and silver medals. Students from three classes were happy to visit their alma mater after almost three years. They met their fellow students. Selfies were clicked and notes exchanged.
University Vice Chancellor V Vijayakumar delivered the welcome address, highlighting the achievements of the NLIU over the past three years – whether academic, cultural or socio-political. He praised the measures taken by professors and students, despite the restrictions of the pandemic, to help the University and the community. He said the institution was to remain closed for 20 months due to a pandemic.
