The Department of Law, Brainware University and the Institution Innovation Council organized an educational tour to Jhajra Colliery and Paschim Bardhaman District Court from 12 - 15 February, 2022 for the students of BBALLB (6th Semester) and LLB (6th Semester).
A total of 27 students and 3 teachers were present on the trip and they visited the Maithon Dam on the second day of their visit. On the third day, they visited Jhajra Colliery and the AGM took them on a tour of the mine and gave a demonstration regarding the various safety procedures associated with the mine. On the same day, the teachers and students had a session with 2 Additional District Court Judges of Paschim Bardhaman District Court where the discussion was on IPR, Procedural Laws (Civil and Criminal) and career prospects in the legal field.
On the last day, the students (under the guidance of the teachers) visited the court premises of Paschim Bardhaman District Court and visited different courts including the District Judge's Court, Additional District Judge's Court, Magistrate's Court as well as the POCSO Court.
"It was a great experience for the students and we had several eye-opening sessions with all the legal professionals. We hope to continue this practice with future batches of students so that they can easily bridge the gap between the classroom and the court," said Assistant Professor Purbita Das, one of the teachers who accompanied the students on this trip.
