The Finishing School for Law Students Course which was intended to broaden the horizon of a law student came to an end on February 28th, 2010. With an impressive array of resource persons drawn from various fields like Law, Politics, Press, Social science etc, it was a treat for the students. The sessions were entertaining with active interactions with the students on variety of topics. The Course was dovetailed to provide unique insights to a law student different from the academic lines taught in the Colleges. The ‘Reality speaking’ classes had the students experience the innumerable options in studying law. The course indeed facilitated the process of ‘Moulding the future lawyer’.
