Country's first e-law library inaugurated
Panaji (PTI): Goa Chief Minister Digambar Kamat inaugurated the country's first e-law library here aimed at facilitating legal practitioners.
"Justice has to reach the common man and if this concept succeeds in giving justice, only then we can say it is working," Kamat said while inaugurating the library at the Bombay High Court on Saturday, adding that it would serve as a model for other Bar Councils.
The Bar Council of Maharashtra and Goa, which is the biggest among bar councils in the country, is the brain behind the concept of on-line library.
The e-library would make judgements available at the click of the button. Lawyers would get a printout of any judgement they needed for ready reference, Council Vice-Chairman Jayant Jaibhave said.
"The Bar Council of India has decided to make computer education mandatory in all law colleges across the nation," Additional Solicitor General of India Rajendra Raghuwanshi, said.
