Concept Note

Teaching and Research are two shapes of the same coin of Education. It is an inalienable function of the educational institutions, as the teachers have to research for imparting a lesson to students.

Innovation in teaching is the routine work of a teacher. It makes the lesson impressive, palatable and beneficial. Further project research is assigned to students is a part of the curriculum. Apart from teaching assignment to teachers, they have to guide research scholars for PhD. Degree.

Further, the institutional projects for policy research are also part of the profession. In this way, the faculty has to have busy with research work as a whole. Hence the methodology of Research is equally significant, which requires to be inculcated as it helps in reaching the desired objectives-KNOWLEDGE TO THE FACULTY, RESEARCHERS, STUDENTS, SOCIETY, INDUSTRY, POLICYMAKERS etc.

  • Hence the quality research is a subject of concern. How to compete with foreign Universities in Research?
  • Should there be a separate Body to monitor Doctoral and Project Research for universities?
  • The National Research workshop wants to discuss the present scenario in India for an appropriate solution. Since the Socio-legal-politico issues are getting complex in governance, everyone is seeking a solution to all problems in the law.  Research in the University is merely theoretical. It imparts a mere degree. Why is the Research far away from socio-industry oriented?
  • Why not there should be a full-time research program so that an empirical survey and laboratory work can be done?
  • Can the Law University remain indifferent to national and global demands and desires of the society, industry, business and educational institutions?
  • Can mono-disciplinary Research fulfil the needs of society and industries?
  • What are the hurdles in interdisciplinary/multidisciplinary/cross-disciplinary Research?
  • What the way is out is our common concern. Whether the PPFIP (Protection and Utilisation of Public funded Intellectual Property Bill 2008) is not the urgent need of the hour?
