Visit of Dr. K Parameswaran (GNLU) at Atmiya Vidya Mandir

Dr K Parameswaran, who is a Professor of Law at the Gujarat National Law University (GNLU), Gandhinagar visited our school on the 27th of October 2012. He gave lectures on Education, Life and Law: Bridging the Gap and Legal Education: A Career in Option.

Dr Parameswaran was welcomed in the auditorium by class 10th to 12th students. He was offered a bouquet by our Principal Dr. Vijay Patel and was introduced by Paramrut Sir.

Through the introduction it was known that he had a core spiritual background owing to his association with the Sri Aurobindo Ashram and currently served as a teacher at GNLU. He first talked about education and life and helped us realise that if we enjoyed studying, it would automatically become easy for us. He also made it very clear that there is no success without facing difficulties.

Then he talked to us about Law as a career. He told the students that law bridges the gap between problems and solutions and is a very lucrative option. From his experience, he shared that he found studying as well as teaching law to be very interesting. He even said that it is one of the most difficult careers but if a student has will, determination & hard work than he/she can easily study and excel in the field of law. He also mentioned that law was a lucrative career option in terms of earning money.

Later on in the day a special seminar was arranged for the students aspiring for a career in law. Dr Parameswaran solved their doubts and was happy to see such a huge number of law career aspirants raising intelligent questions. He guided them about the techniques to deal with the Common Law Admission Test (CLAT), job prospects and life at National Law Universities. He even said that it was not always necessary to practise law after studying as one could also run a successful business after their study with their understanding of law. He also said that many successful UPSC candidates are law graduates. Finally at the end of the seminar, Dr Parameswaran was presented a memento by our Vice-Principal Ashish Patel.

Dr Parameswaran certainly passed over his passion for law to the students and motivated us to "Be Nice and Work Hard". He keenly took a campus tour and expressed his pleasure meeting with the students and staff of our school.
