Legal Education In India Is Transforming

The nature and contours of legal education in India are fast changing. However, educational institutions are not in a position to meet the expectations of the contemporary requirements.

Today we need domain specific and professional education and our educational system is still adhering to the traditional old attributes of academic nature. Clearly, legal education in India needs reforms and rejuvenation.

While the governmental machinery and educational institutions are falling well behind the global educational requirements yet private players have done great job in this regard. Not only private players are imparting qualitative world class educations and trainings in India but they are also combining various streams to produce better results.

Perry4Law Techno Legal Base (PTLB) is one such private institution that has combined technological and legal aspects and providing various techno legal courses, educations and trainings. PTLB is the premier techno legal segment of India’s exclusive techno legal ICT and IP law firm Perry4Law. PTLB is also managing the exclusive techno legal institute for lifelong learning in India.

Similarly, another techno legal segment of Perry4Law known as Perry4Law Techno Legal ICT Training Centre (PTLITC) is providing domain specific and highly specialised techno legal education and trainings in India and world wide.

These techno legal courses of PTLB are provided through the PTLB e-learning platform that is providing these trainings and educations in an online environment and through distance learning mode.

The signs of transformation of legal education in India are very apparent. Further, foreign universities are also planning to open their branches and campuses in India. Even opening of various virtual campuses for legal education in India are in pipeline. This positive transformation would also help in reducing the corruption that has strong grip over the higher legal education in India and deteriorating the higher legal research acumen of India.

Cyber Skilled Workforce Of India

Skilled workforce is the backbone for any economy. India is presently having one of the most populated workforces of young generation in the world. However, the problem is that they are not adequately skilled and trained. This is more so regarding the information technology field.

While countries like UK are looking forward for cyber crime fighters yet the cyber skills development in India has not been taken seriously. For instance, ethical hacking skills developments in India are urgently required. Ethical hacking training and courses in India must be encouraged and Indian government must pay special attention to this aspect.

Similarly, cyber security courses in India are also required to be undertaken. Cyber security is techno legal in nature. Thus, cyber security courses must also be techno legal in nature. Techno legal online courses in India need to be developed so that interested students and professionals can be enrolled from any part of the world.

Law enforcement agencies of India also need cyber law training. Presently cyber law and cyber crimes cases and not taken up by Indian police. Even the so called cyber crime cells of India lack necessary expertise to deal with cyber law cases and solve cyber crime cases.

On the front of defence forces as well India need to develop both offensive and defensive cyber warfare capabilities. Indian defense and security against cyber warfare is still not upto the mark. As a result cyber espionage and cyber warfare against India have increased tremendously.

It is high time for Indian government to develop a cyber skilled workforce for India that can handle both defensive and offensive cyber issues.
