Sri Pranab Mukherjee, Hon'ble President of India: Reform edu system with compulsory study of criminal laws at undergrad level


One can regretfully see today that quite a number of the crimes are being committed by younger generation who are just unaware of the laws governing the society or the pitfalls of the misadventures that they may try to do without understanding the consequences. Today, a person becomes aware of even the basic laws governing the society and rules of personal conduct only if he or she opts for a law course, but not otherwise, even though such person's conduct is subjected to close scrutiny of the same society day in and day out. It is all the more imperative that we take the mandate to educate every young citizen the laws of the society, even before trying to penalise him for what was never thought to be wrong in the first place. Compulsory legal education will also help one to understand what is right and what is wrong, so that reforms could be brought in at right places through involvement of younger minds in the fast changing socio-economic scenario of our secular country.
