Since long back, Legal Academic Writing (hereafter LAW) has offered engaging discourse as a sui generis domain to generate fundamental resource to existing subject knowledge. In the West, legal writing is divided into two counts. Legal Professional Writing (LPW) concentrates upon those instrumental to law practice: within the courtroom or otherwise. Legal Academic Writing (LAW) grapples with those instrumental to generate literature in juridical science rather than typical law practice; thereby supplements legal literature no less critical to progressive development of the law ahead. While LPW may get taught in course of the law practice, LAW has hardly had routes to get developed by the learner. Consequently, blunt compromise with the quality of legal literature is in commonplace to the discredit of legal academics. Thus, in the absence of tradition to prepare learners contribute to legal literature, both the bench and the bar suffer from vacuum, if not void, out of want of great jurists in the profession. Except rare illustrations, e.g. H. M. Seervai, D. D. Basu, and the like, compared to the American counterpart, professional academics is yet to grow elsewhere.
The primary objective of this short-term course lies in filling in the long-pending vacuum in legal education of India. Besides, the secondary objective lies in filling in a vacuum in the legal literature vis-à-vis LAW and thereby prepare these next generation learners address the vacuum through the input the course is meant to disseminate for public good. In particular, LAW constitutes a blind spot of the mainstream legal education in India; except a few- too few- institutions with the resource required.
Unlike elsewhere, the course is meant to address the concern of those law school learners who are aspirant for the academic career ahead. Therefore, those learners who wish to join law teaching, law research, law library, law publishing house, professional law reporting for newspapers and case reporters alike, constitutes core focus of the forthcoming course.
