The session was quite eye opening for the students as they could grasp the legal provisions and how they are enforced by the courts of law, the ruling given by them and how a particular case is decided in the light of facts of the case, circumstances, evidence, witnesses and the intentions of the contracting parties thereby restituting the aggrieved party. Responding to students’ queries, he explained how previous judgements play an important role in deciding any legal dispute. Dr Jaspreet in her concluding words, thanked the resource person for a very enriching session for the students as well as the Faculty.
