Faculty Development Program for JLU School of Law by Prof. (Dr.) Ranbir Singh, VC, NLU.

 “No one is a born expert; expertise is something we gradually acquire.” – Prof. (Dr.) Ranbir Singh


On 2nd December 2018, the faculty of JLU School of Law had the privilege of hosting Prof. (Dr.) Ranbir Singh, Vice Chancellor, NLU, Delhi and a doyen of Indian legal education, as a resource person of an enriching faculty development program after he was admitted to the alumni of Jagran Lakecity University as he was awarded Honorary Doctorate (Honoris Causa) at the 4th Convocation Ceremony.


In his session, Prof. Singh focused on the need for enhancement programs for law faculty such as workshops, seminars, training sessions, FDP’s, etc. He stated that perpetual growth is a must in the field of academics. Furthermore, he acquired inputs from the faculty members regarding assurance of quality in legal education in the country and emphasized the fact that growth of any institution depends on its assessment of local competition and its capability of thriving on the weakness of others.


While sharing his vast knowledge in the field of legal research and legal education, he asserted that creating intellectual resources should be the priority for any educational institute and that the faculty should work efficiently to produce research of refined quality. He also emphasized the pertinence of team-work in any arena of life while pointing out that the element of team-work is comparatively of poor quality in our country and it is the duty of the young academicians to work on the same.


Prof. (Dr.) Singh also highlighted the fact that it is extremely important to assess our capacity and specialty before embarking on any endeavour. It was indeed a comprehensively enlightening session for the entire faculty at JLU School of Law. We express heartfelt gratitude to Prof. (Dr.) Ranbir Singh for his invaluable time and hope for our fruitful association with him.
