Comprehensive Legal Education is Essential to Create Future Generations of Vigilant Citizens

Belagavi, Karnataka – In a recent induction and orientation program for first-year students at Karnataka Law Society’s Raja Lakhamagouda Law College, the Registrar of Karnataka State Rural Development and Panchayat Raj University (KSRDPRU), S.V. Nadagoudar, underscored the pivotal role of a well-rounded legal education system in nurturing future generations of vigilant citizens.

Nadagoudar emphasised the noble nature of the legal profession, describing it as a tool to aid the poor and disadvantaged masses, particularly in rural areas. He pointed out that legal education plays a supplementary role in shaping not just lawyers but also ideal citizens who are well-versed in the principles of justice and fairness.

Addressing the gathering, Nadagoudar urged the young law graduates to stay abreast of trending topics and the latest amendments to laws, rules, and regulations. He emphasised the increasing competitiveness of the legal profession, highlighting the importance of continuous learning to thrive in this dynamic field.

M.R. Kulkarni, Chairman of the governing council of the college, provided valuable advice to the students. He encouraged them to focus on three crucial aspects: developing their individual personality, understanding the intricacies of the legal system, and building effective relationships with fellow advocates.

‘Young lawyers should work hard consistently. You do not need to chase money. Money will chase you and opportunities will emerge if you remain determined,’ Kulkarni emphasised, highlighting the significance of dedication and passion in the legal profession.

The college principal, A.H. Hawaldar, along with IQAC Coordinator Samina Nahid Baig, Sunidhi Joshi, and other distinguished speakers, further emphasised the importance of a holistic legal education that goes beyond textbooks.

As students Neha and Anuja anchored the event, Ruchitra expressed gratitude during the vote of thanks, acknowledging the valuable insights shared by the speakers.

In a separate celebration, the college observed National Youth Day and Swami Vivekananda Jayanti. The event featured talks by Assistant Professor of Surgery in JNMC, Kishore Bandagar, and social worker Kishore Kakade. Dr. Bandagar shed light on the life of Swami Vivekananda, particularly his visit to Belagavi. Kakade emphasised the importance of values and traditions in Indian society, aligning with the ethos of National Youth Day.

The Cultural and NSS Unit of the college organised the event, with students Sneha Kulkarni, Suhas Huddar, Sahana Wali, Phani Desai, Prajwal Tapsee, and others actively participating. Shilpa Raikar, faculty, staff members, and students were present, making the celebration a vibrant and memorable occasion.

The event underscored the critical role of comprehensive legal education in shaping not only adept lawyers but also conscientious and vigilant citizens, ready to contribute positively to society. The words of wisdom shared by the speakers resonated with the students, instilling a sense of responsibility and purpose as they embark on their legal education journey.
