Panaji: 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 during the inaugural of the library at the Bombay High Court yesterday 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, has been responsible for the setting up of the online library.
The e-library would make available judgments at the click of the button. Lawyers would get a printout of any judgment 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.
