Lok Adalat Proceedings on 08.09.2018
The fourth year students of School of Legal Studies of K R Mangalam University attended the National Lok Adalat held on 8 September, 2018 in the District Court, Gurugram. The Chief Judicial Magistrate-cum-Secretary of District Legal Service Authority, Gurugram, Shri Narender Singh, met and briefed the students about the working of Lok Adalat. The Hon’ble Judge traced the history of Lok Adalats, originating from panchayats in village to the present system. In this interaction the CJM encouraged the students to attend more of such proceedings for better understanding of law. He also asked the students to get trained as para-legal volunteers for helping those in need. The students thereafter also met various judges in the Court taking part in the National Lok Adalat. The judges discussed the relevance and benefits of Lok Adalats and how the mechanism is significant for access to justice for all.
The trip was highly beneficial for the students for gaining practical knowledge about the functioning of Lok Adalats
