Chief Justice of India DY Chandrachud received an Award for Global Leadership by his alma mater Harvard Law School. The CJI was present at the Harvard Law School and spoke about the initiatives he had taken at the Supreme Court after he became the Chief Justice of India.
Incidentally, the Harvard Law School is celebrating the 100th anniversary of its Graduate Law Program and CJI Chandrachud remembered his days at the University as an LLM student in 1982-83 and an SJD candidate from 1983-86.
The CJI emphasised the importance of interdisciplinary studies as law does not work in a vacuum. He stated that law students should be involved in clinical legal models and get actively involved in real-time cases in local areas.
He suggested that law schools should develop a mechanism to train students to handle stress and mental health. He also interacted with the students and faculty members of different departments at Harvard University.
