Law universities should keep pace with technological changes: Modi

New Delhi, Feb 22 (IANS) Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Wednesday that law universities should have talent which takes into account fast-paced technological changes and works towards laws that can stand the test of time.

Addressing a gathering at Rashtrapati Bhavan here, Modi said that technology was bringing about massive changes and this was also making laws obsolete.

Citing the example of radio, he said that a person was required to have licence to own a radio set earlier but now one could listen to radio stations from across the world on a cell phone.

Modi said there could be flying cars after 15-20 years and this can make some laws relating to road transport irrelevant.

He said framing laws that are also futuristic in approach was a challenge.

“Our law universities should have that kind of talent to look at all the issues at hand and then work,” Modi said.

Modi presented a copy of the book “Judicial Reforms – Recent Global Trends” to President Pranab Mukherjee.
