As per the academic calendar, the second semester students made a court visit on 13th and 14th of December. The visit was programmed by National Law college on the joint collaboration with the Kathmandu District Court, the Supreme Court of Nepal and the Office of Attorney General. Coordinator Basanta Raj Phuyal, administrative staff member Arjun Niraula and faculty member Badri Thapa went along with the students to guide them. Moreover, the respective representatives from the respective judicial institutions also facilitated the students during the visit.
The facilitators praised the students for their punctuality and high degree of disciplinary behavior. The students met with number of lawyers and honorable judges during the court session. The students took part in the study of court procedures and also observed the lawyers pleading of cases before the bench. After the pleading session, the honorable judges answered the queries of the students.
During the final hours of the visit, students also had interactive session with the Deputy Attorney General at the office of Attorney General. His motivating words on the scope of law studies in Nepal and the situation of lawyers encouraged the students for their career.
“This was quite a knowledgeable time and such academic programs are a must for the students not only for the development of practical part of legal knowledge but also to freshen up the mind of students on the long run of career development. We are very much thankful to the college administration and the respected facilitators for such a grand opportunity” said second semester student Bishal Wagle.
Every year, National Law College organizes court visit for the students to enhance their practical knowledge on the court procedures. Such visits are extremely significant for the students as they get to see in action what they were learning within the four walls of the classroom.
