The PIL by filed in Delhi High with a group of an advocate Virender Kumar Sharma Punj and Shubham Pushp Sharma seeking direction to include legal subjects with AI in the course curriculum. Punj was reportedly assigned to the Delhi Police as Assistant Commissioner of Police (Vigilance).The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) stated that legal studies would be given as a topic in classes XI and XII on a pilot basis in 200 schools, according to an attorney representing the petitioners, Meghverna Sharma, in 2013.The attorney claimed that since then, the administration has not taken many steps in that direction.She added that courses on artificial intelligence (AI) have been included to the curriculum and that the kids she spoke with were interested in studying.
Conclusion of the Court
A public interest litigation (PIL) petition requesting the inclusion of legal studies as an elective subject in every school was dismissed by the Delhi High Court division bench of Chief Justice Satish Chandra Sharma and Justice Subramonium Prasad. They noted that the inclusion of a subject in the curriculum falls within the domain of the executive and courts are not a forum to decide such issues.
The Court added that if such requests are approved, someone will file a petition the following day asking for astrophysics to be taught in schools.Where is the authority to demand the inclusion of this particular stream in the curriculum? Some kid would come up to us tomorrow and say they were taking astrophysics.The bench reaffirmed that the government is in charge of this and that the court will not issue any orders in this regard. As a result, it rejected the plea.
