While there are accusations on the university setups of being an academic cafeterias,
NITI MANTHAN intends to supplement the law schools for achieving what they ought to
fulfill being a temple of ‘man-making’. Law fraternity,
being one of the largest professional families in the country,
nourishes some of the societal stalwarts, but the question remains
whether it nourishes the ‘common man’? Swami Vivekananda said that
traitor is that man who got educated and grew through the sacrifice of the
society and give back nothing to it. NITI MANTHAN aspires to facilitate
social sensitivity to the law student thereby inclining the mindset towards
constructive development of the society and the nation, so as to we don’t
just get the experience while missing the meaning of all that we do.
AIM & PURPOSE
Law has, since the inception of civilized society, played a pivotal role in framing and moulding the society.
Be it anti-slavery moment led by Lincoln in the USA or the independence struggle of India,
the law-men came forward to lead the society towards egalitarian, free and fraternity based one.
But is the same spirit of societal revolution through self-involution still alive in the legal fraternity?
In the words of Dean Swift, a man is as fit for flying as for thinking.
Technology has made it possible for men to fly, but has it made it possible for men to think?
To develop the answers to these questions into affirmative ones, NITI MANTHAN traces back its genesis.
To catalyze the holistic and rational thinking faculties among the law-students and to bridge the gap between
the legal scholarship, academia and the professionals, NITI MANTHAN stands committed.
It is an initiative to motivate and inspire young students on various socio-legal themes
and to guide them traverse the righteous path throughout the endeavour of their personal
and professional lives. By having a direct interaction and by exchange of views with experienced legal minds,
it is hoped that the young law students and scholars will be immensely benefitted.
