Priyanka, COO Manupatra shared, "Law Teachers are an important stakeholder in the ecosystem. Till date, there has not been a dedicated conclave which engages law teachers exclusively. The idea behind the conclave is about creating something that does not exist until now - a platform where the law teachers can come together, collaborate, facilitate knowledge sharing, and grow networks on an All-India basis. This conclave is an opportunity for legal educators to come together, share knowledge, and enhance their teaching methods, ultimately contributing to the growth and development of the legal education sector in India."

Deepak Kapoor CEO shared that, "The conclave can contribute to the development of a strong, cohesive academic community of law teachers, not only at regional level, but at an All India level. This sense of belonging and shared purpose can have a positive impact on the field of legal education as a whole. Collaborative efforts and the exchange of ideas can inspire innovation in the way law is taught. Sharing teaching techniques and strategies can lead to the development of more effective and engaging approaches to legal education, benefiting both teachers and students."
