Saarc"S Best Law Teacher Award

News Information

The vice-chancellor of Nalsar University of Law, Hyderabad, has been selected for SAARC's best law teacher award, this year. The award, which carries Rs 1 lakh, a citation and a plaque, is to be given by union law minister Ravi Shankar Prasad in Delhi on September 6. A jury unanimously selected Faizan Mustafa for the award, announced NR Madhav Menon, founder vice-chancellor, National Law School of India University, Bangalore and Lalit Bhasin, president, Society of Indian Law Firms. At Nalsar, Mustafa designed and taught new courses in areas like diversity management law, comparative strict liability law, multiculturalism and minority rights. Earlier, he launched several courses such as intellectual property rights, international human rights law and tourism laws at Aligarh Muslim University, where he was dean of law.He was founder VC of National Law University, Orissa. Author of seven books and more than 120 articles, he is penning a volume on the reinstatement of Indian laws, a project of the Supreme Court of India and the Indian Law Institute. 
In response to the news, Mustafa highlighted the successes and challenges in legal education and research in India: "As a country, we are doing very well - we have 18 national law universities, the first one being NLS Bangalore, started by Menon. The model has been replicated in 17 states." He said that every year Indian law students beat their counterparts from universities such as Oxford, Harvard and Yale in moot court competitions and BALLB students' papers are published in international journals. The number of Common Law Admission Test applications is surging annually, he added. "Law, as a course, has regained its prestige. It has become one of the prized careers." Noteworthy campus recruitment by corporate law firms, however, has a "flip side": graduates become corporate lawyers and not many go into litigation, Mustafa pointed out. "Though, there has been a recent phenome non - some lawyers have left corporate law firms and switched to litigation." 

The award has previously gone to leading jurists such as Menon (after whom it is named), Ranbir Singh, GV Ajjappa, VS Mani, A Lakshminath, and Mizanur Rahman, professor, University of Dhaka, Bangladesh.
