Union Law Minister Kiren Rijiju urged for legal education to be delivered in local languages and emphasised the importance of implementing local languages in courts.
Rijiju said during a speech at the Supreme Court’s Constitution Day celebration:
“Prime Minister Narendra Modi has highlighted the need to implement local languages in courts so that the common man feels connected. Under the aegis of the Law Ministry, the Bar Council of India has set up a Bharatiya Bhasha Committee headed by former Chief Justice of India SA Bobde. We have already made a glossary of 65,000 words. We will use AI and technology to digitise them, and make them available for all. Once legal education starts using local language, it will create a local language ecosystem.“
