He delivered the President’s address on “Global Change and Justice: The Future of Our World” and inaugurated the Singhvi Endowment established at OP Jindal Global University recently by the Senior Counsel. Dr. Abhishek Manu Singhvi.
“The Singhvi Endowment represents the ideals of Dr. Abhishek M Singhvi and his contribution to society. This philanthropic and visionary act of philanthropy is driven by the spirit of equality. It is a clear legal explanation for India. It fosters a spirit of direct inquiry in our public spaces. It finds great opportunities for learning,” Justice Kaul said.
He also spoke about the importance of increasing access to legal education.
“Legal studies are the places where social levels are questioned. Should we increase the way to study law in the first place? Is it a good thing to hire a lawyer? If we succeed in opening up other ways to study the law, what is the most effective way? Can we use the skills of those young lawyers as a national project? It is a very large, diverse and balanced country. A group that has been under hundreds years, and is being reduced today. The study of law is closely related to our social context. Limiting access to this important area is denying rights to a large part of the population. .If our goal is to increase access to legal education, ensuring greater access to the sanctum sanctorum of royal houses cannot be the end of the goal. he said.
