Society is changing every day, and it gives legal professionals a plethora of opportunities to explore. Today, the legal field offers many jobs encompassing diverse skills, experience, and education. Developments in law and technology have also created new legal career opportunities. However, as with many other sectors, will COVID hit legal professionals? The answer is no. Experts believe that the legal sector has and will foresee a surplus of work. For instance, the disrupted economic waters will force legal teams to re-negotiate contracts, refinance debts and deal with contractual breaches.
Now, the pressure is on law colleges. In the wake of talent blooming and globalization of careers, law education providers need to break the barriers of traditional teaching methodologies and reinvent the system to suit the global scenarios. The teaching process of law in India has to shift from a fundamentally regional context to understanding legal conversations of the world—through international law courses, comparative studies, and more. Further, to augment the global perspective of legal education, Indian law schools can bring international faculties on board, conduct exchange programs, send teachers and students to participate in international competitions and conferences.
