Addressing the summit Law Secretary said that the FDI and its effect on the globalisation is a great opportunity to the Indian lawyers and with the advancement in the Information Technology it has become the dire need to transform the traditional reforms and techniques which are being used in the legal profession from a long time.
He further added that a robust mechanism is required to develop the legal system based on reciprocity and the need to expand the legal system is not limited to within the court but is required outside the court also. Besides, there is also a need for comprehensive consultation with all stakeholders. This has to be gradual and in a calibrated manner, not a high inaugural activity.
