ALITE Magazine
THE AILITE- Army Institute of Laws Magazine is an annual cultural and scholarly rendition of Students creativity and academic excellence. As you flip the pages, the magazine takes you on a journey into the ingenious realm of AILians and acquaints you with their exuberance vis- a-vis the various activities, competitions and workshops that they have proudly represented the Institute at. Every student is a blissful recipient of THE AILITE at the end of every academic session.

The contributions to the magazines are made by the students and AILians essays, be it articles or poems, adequately speak about their literary prowess and also their sensitivity to the burning issues of our times. There is no sphere of life that has remained untouched and that the AILians are not actively engaged in. From Moots, Debates and Declamations to Dance, Drama, Short- Skit, Street Play to Sports AIL students are making their presence felt everywhere and THE AILITE MAGAZINE is a soulful and chronological representation of all these events.

SPECTRUM
SPECTRUM - A quarterly report of various academic and extra-curricular activities taking place in the Army Institute of Law.

The institute firmly believes in the holistic development of all individuals. Keeping this in mind, the students are encouraged not only to excel scholastically but also hone their skills like music, histrionics, painting et all. This quarterly report, SPECTRUM, gives an insight into the various activities and clubs that the students are a part of and the various workshops, competitions (national and international) that they have represented our institute at.

The faculty of the Army Institute of Law is constantly engaged in upgrading their knowledge data base and this report also apprises us of the conferences and refresher courses that they have been a part of. The institute has always endeavored to elevate the intellectual level of the students to a level that is compatible with the knowledge of leading professionals in the field of law. And to achieve this, guest lectures are organized on a regular basis. The SPECTRUM is an updated account of all such events and this report has a limited circulation, with copies being retained by the Institute for reference and a few of them being sent to the Command and other AWES governed Institutes.

AIL REPORTER
The AIL Reporter is a fortnightly newsletter covering all the events, opportunities and happenings in the Institute. Articles based on the cover story of the issue are invited from the students and publish in the reporter. A legal and a Campus poll are conducted and views of the students as well as the faculty members are incorporated with the results. Recent case laws, legal news and legal phrases are accounted for in the legal section. Leisure section encompasses crosswords, puzzles, movie/music/book reviews and food articles etc.

American Essayist and Winner of Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Arthur Miller remarks, A good newspaper, I suppose, is a nation talking to itself. Reading through the pages of the meticulously researched and presented AIL Reporter, one is struck by the shocking paradox of our growth as an Institute and the hub of legal education. The advent of the satellite television with over 300 channels available at the press of a button, cyberspace revolution and mushrooming multiplexes has changed the way Indians entertain themselves. The Newsletter is a refreshing change from the commonly available sources of knowledge and entertainment as it chronologically presents the achievements of the AILians, their soul stirring experiences and apt opinions on various issues. By evaluating the implications of news and especially legal news, the AIL Reporter endeavours to develop a sense of awareness and conscience among the future lawyers. A generation that ignores its history has no present and no future. As a newsletter, it tries to do its bit to prevent that by connecting the dots of the past to the matrix of the future with columns dedicated to important events in past and their resonance in present. World renowned philanthropist Eli Broad observes, There is no substitute for knowledge. It is impossible to read a paper without being exposed to ideas. And ideas... more than money... are the real currency for success. Indeed, ideas are special as they have the great potential of inspiring people to aspire for their dreams and achieve them. The AIL Reporter, nonetheless, aims to instil the addiction for knowledge along with a sense of social awareness.

Aspire and Achieve!

HOUSE SYSTEM
House systems create small, cross-sectional communities within a larger institution so that students and faculty can be known one by one so that benefits of individual diversity can be fully realized. Creation of various structures and then ensuring unity amongst them is essential for creating the sense of unity in diversity among the students so that a strong foundation can be laid for community building.

A house system creates an easy to implement programme which stimulates involvement into the institutes affairs and develops skills such as debating, singing, dancing etc. Through our houses, we ensure active participation from all students so as to create a sense of belonging in all.

Students at Army Institute of Law are divided into four houses, each house bearing the name of a great jurist: Austin, Bentham, Kelson and Denning. Throughout the academic year, students from these houses compete with each other in various activities like Debate, Declamation, Singing, Dancing, Group Discussion, Dramatics and sports activities which take place every Thursday of the week in the Multi Purpose Hall from 2:15 to 4:15 pm. Each house works under the supervision and guidance of a few faculty members.

Austin House: John Austin (1790-1859) was a noted British jurist concerning the philosophy of law and jurisprudence. Austin took a positivist approach to jurisprudence; he viewed the law as commands from a sovereign that are backed by a threat of sanction.

Bentham House: Jeremy Bentham (1748 - 1832) was an English jurist, philosopher, and legal and social reformer. He is best known for his advocacy of utilitarianism and animal rights, and the idea of the panopticon.

Kelson House: Hans Kelsen (1881 -1973) was an Austrian jurist and legal philosopher. He has been regarded as one of the most important legal scholars of the 20th century and has been highly influential among scholars of jurisprudence and public law.

SPORTS CLUB
OUR MOTTO- HEALTHY BODY WITH HEALTHY MIND
Apart from being a fun activity, sports offer several health benefits, thus contributing to ones physical and mental well-being.

Sports serve as an excellent physical exercise and a very constructive way of channelising the energy. It develops leadership qualities and fosters team spirit in students. Sports involve competition; they involve winning and losing. This exposes the players to both the aspects of life, successes and failures and teaches them to accept both successes and failures in a positive spirit.

Exercise through sports generates happiness molecules in a persons body, thus contributing to his/her mental well-being. Considering the importance of sports, we at Army Institute of Law thought of running a sports club so that students can be encouraged to participate in various sports activities which are conducted on regular basis within the campus. To promote sports activities, AIL regularly holds open tournaments in badminton, tennis, basketball, squash, Table tennis.

Highly qualified faculty coupled with in built scheme of training the students at various law firms, law offices and companies exposes them to the professional and practical aspects of law, advancing their education beyond classrooms. Such programmes ensure a smooth metamorphosis of the students into complete professionals. Furthermore, our regularly held guest lectures introduce students to leading legal luminaries. Such interaction exposes them to varied perceptions of law and sensitizes them on various socio-legal issues so as to meet the demands of this challenging field. This professional approach blended with sound theoretical knowledge forms the base of the students of the Army Institute of Law. In substance, Army Institute of Law is continuously working to create a new set of professionals who not only have the best qualities of lawyers but also the virtues of a soldier. The world swarms in a pool of humanity…. Our students are a class apart and are taught to stand tall.

OUR MISSION
To be a premier center for legal education by adopting healthy teaching practices which cater to our students' need of achieving theoretical and practical legal expertise in highly efficient and competitive legal environment along with adequate exposure in all other spheres of life so that our students can become complete individuals who are ready to face the world on all the fronts.

PRACTICAL LEARNING
Apart from classroom teaching, Army Institute of Law conducts various moot courts as an efficient tool of imparting practical legal education to our students. Moot Courts help in developing the right advocacy skills, analytical ability, soft communication skills, self-confidence and legal research amongst the students. Moot courts familiarize the students with analytical tools and legal procedures. These courts bridge the gulf between legal theory and legal practice. AIL, in its endeavour to promote the same, annually organizes Novice Moot Court Competition for the first year students right at the onset

Students spat turns ugly

A spat between two girl students of the Army Institute of Law seems to have taken the shape of an ugly controversy.

First convocation of Army Institute of Law held

The Army Institute of Law (AIL) organised its first convocation here today, with 50 former students being conferred upon the Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Laws degrees. The students were from the first two batches to pass out from the AIL in 2004 and 2005, respectively.

Delivering the convocation address, Director-General, Competition Commission of India, Mr Amitabh Kumar, said lawyers were responsible for holding the thread of civil society together. Stating that expectations of integrity and professionalism from lawyers are justified and necessary given the enomity of their responsibility to society, he added that a lawyers task was to present a fair alternative to litigants.

Mr Kumar said the Indian judicial system was widely regarded to be slow. He said there had been changes to the civil procedure aiming at quickening the pace of decision-making and restricting adjournments, he added. Mere provisions in laws or regulations are not enough. It will take all stake holders to implement the intention in its true spirit and lawyers are one of the most important stake holders in the process, he asserted.

The Controller of Examinations, Punjabi University, Patiala, Dr Baldev Singh, awarded the degrees. The 2004 batch had 37 students while the 2005 batch had 66 students for the five-year course.

Prizes were also given for academic excellence. The Airawat Running Trophy for standing first in the five-year course went to Ankur Ghai of 2004 batch and Payal Manhas of 2005 batch. Batra s Silver Sterling Trophy for standing first in law of evidence went to Gurpartap Singh, while Dhruv Trophy for standing first in the law of contract went to Poonam Verma.



Honing advocacy skills of law students

"If only we also had access to such moot court contests, who knows we might have been much better advocates. These days, students studying in various law institutes pick up the broader nuances of advocacy in their institute itself. All that they need when they start practising is to look for clients."

Coming from a well-established Punjab and Haryana High Court lawyer, this quote sums it all.

Moot court contests, like the one which ended today at the Army Institute of Law (AIL), Mohali, provide an opportunity to students of law to hone their advocacy skills and also make them aware of the need to develop researching habits.

This is probably one reason why Chief Justice of India Mr Justice Y.K. Sabharwal yesterday underlined the need for students of law to lay equal emphasis on practical and clinical aspect of legal education. Moot courts or moots as they are commonly known as, are contests aimed at allowing students of law to develop their oratorical skills, put their legal knowledge to use in a hypothetical case, while following the etiquette of court atmosphere.

Today, at the semi-finals of the Moot Court Contest-2006 organised jointly by the AIL, Mohali, and Malhotra and Malhotra Associates, young students argued a hypothetical proposition titled "The State of Rabbistan vs Frindia".

The case pertained to the policy of hot pursuit and universal jurisdiction over terrorists and students were asked to argue it before the International Court of Justice. "We worked day and night for the contest, spent endless hours on the internet and going through books and law journals in the library. We took a lot of help from our seniors," said a participant.

For the three members of the eventual winner - the Kerala Law Academy - participating in moots, and winning, has become a habit. The all-woman team had emerged the hot favourite to lift the coveted trophy, which it did. It had emerged winners in the last year s national moot court competition organised by the Karnataka Law Education Society.

"This is our third major moot court together. We regularly participate in the moots in our academy. We feel we will make better lawyers through this process," says Ms Soma John.

For young Anu Brar, who was declared the best advocate at today s contest, mooting is part of the learning. She feels moot court contests help students get a feel of the real thing while still in classroom.

Seeing their performance, Punjab and Haryana High Court Bar Association president Atul C. Lakhanpal, who was one of the judges for the contest, rued the lack of such opportunities when lawyer of his age were studying.

"These students are excellent. Not only are they taught a lot more, moots and other such events help them hone their skills," he observed.


Kerala Law Academy wins moot court trophy; PU

The all-woman team of Soma John, Meenakshi Prasad and Lakshmi V. from Kerala Law Academy (KLA) emerged winners of the National Moot Court Competition-2006, organised jointly by the Army Institute of Law (AIL), Mohali and Malhotra and Malhotra Associates.

The team of Anu Brar, Kshitij Sharma and Tarun Bhutani, all second-year students of the LLB course in the Department of Laws, Panjab University, Chandigarh, had to be content with the runners-up position.

However, Anu, daughter of former Punjab and Haryana High Court Judge Justice H.S. Brar (retd), was declared the best advocate, while the second prize in this category went to Soma John. The National Law Institute University, Bhopal, got the award for the best memorial.

The prizes were given away by Mr Justice A.R. Lakshmanan, Judge, Supreme Court .

Earlier, addressing the gathering, Mr Justice Lakshmanan expressed happiness over the holding of moot court contests.

"The difference between law as taught and law as practised is familiar. I would say that in law as taught, the facts are clear and the law uncertain; whereas in law as practised, the law is clear and facts uncertain," he remarked.

He urged the students to strictly adhere to the high standards of the legal system and observe professional values. He also urged them to work hard to establish themselves as lawyers.

Among others, Major- Gen Nilendra Kumar, Judge Advocate-General, Dr Anjana Kakar, Principal, AIL, Mohali and Mr J.D.R. Malhotra, who sponsored the event, spoke on the occasion.


Candidates allege discrimination by Army Institute of Law

Candidates seeking admission to the Army Institute of Law (AIL), Mohali, under the “Punjab resident” category for admission to the five-year law course have alleged discrimination and ignoring of merit by the institute’s management in selection process.

In a petition filed before the Punjab and Haryana High Court a few days ago, some the candidates affected have alleged that those in the “Army category” who had not even qualified in the written test have been admitted, whereas candidates in the other category who had not only qualified in the test and but also scored higher marks than those in question were ignored.

The High Court has issued notice of motion to the respondents, which include the GOC-in-C, Western Command, who is the institute’s patron, Registrar, Punjabi University, Patiala and the institute’s senior functionaries..

The petition has contended that as per the AIL prospectus, the minimum qualifying marks in the test will be 30 per cent and that admissions will be made on merit.

Further, the prospectus stated July 16 as the date for counselling for left over seats, but no counselling was held on that day. It was on July 28 that counselling was done for left over seats and 10 seats were filled by candidates from the Army Category who, as per the results, had not qualified.

The petition stated that there was no public notice or advertisement to announce the new date for counselling for left over seats, expect for a mention on the AIL’s website.

Stating that there was no provision in the prospectus whereby a candidate who has been declared as “not qualified” can be called for counselling and thereafter, admitted in the course, the petition has termed the action on the part of the AIL management as illegal, unconstitutional and discriminatory.

A representation in this regard was also submitted to the AIL authorities earlier. The AIL was established in July, 1999, under the aegis of the Army Welfare Educational Society.






Weapons pose risk to mankind, says expert

He is against global terrorism and weapons of mass destruction. That is why Member of Delhi-based Indian Society of International Law s executive council Professor B.C. Nirmal says that the weapons pose "formidable challenge to humankind". But at the same time he claims that the use of force by a super power — in garb of fighting global war against terrorism without UN Security Council s express authorisation — is of "doubtful legality".

In Mohali s Army Institute of Law for attending a workshop on international law, Prof Nirmal adds the war is also strategically counter productive.

"It has disastrous consequences for international rule of law in unipolar world," he adds.

Elaborating upon his contention, Prof Nirmal says, "The recent war heaped on Iraq by the US-led defence forces was unprovoked, illegal, unjustified and morally reprehensible. Iraq s virtual annexation in the name of destroying weapons of mass destruction, besides elimination of alleged link between Iraq and the Al-Quaeda, only pushed aside so-called global fight against terrorism".

The war, he adds, also brought to fore basic issue pertaining to non-use of force, territorial integrity and political independence of a weak state.

"It also demonstrated willingness of the US to perpetuate its hegemonic position by hook or crook. It also displayed lack of qualm on the part of the US to strike any state any time if necessary for furtherance of its perceived self-interest".

Offering a solution to the problem of global terrorism, he suggests, "If you want fight against terrorism to be successful, you will have to direct it at two levels. First of all, the existing anti-terrorism regime has to be strengthened and priority has to be given to an early adoption of a comprehensive convention on terrorism. All states will have to show genuine commitment towards elimination of terrorism by becoming parties to the existing conventions".


Work with diligence and sincerity: SC Judge

Brevity is a quality of every successful lawyer, but it does not come unless there is clarity of thought. Clarity of thought is a product of careful preparation, which involves marshalling of facts and formulation of questions of law that may arise for determination.

These views were expressed by Mr Justice B.P. Singh, Judge, Supreme Court of India, as part of his inaugural address at the All-India Annual Sarin Moot Court Competition organised at the Army Institute of Law here today.

He said one of the qualities of a successful lawyer was that he knew from where to begin and where to end. When you join the profession, you need to train your mind to say what you want to say in minimum words. Confine yourself to what was relevant and take care of the facts.

He advised the students to imbibe all qualities that made a gentleman as these very qualities made a successful lawyer. Those who acquired a reputation of being well-behaved, fair and honest in the presentation of facts, found their tasks much easier. Presentation of a case in the court was a work of art that one could learn from his experiences.

Mr Justice B.P. Singh said the legal profession was not for those who wanted to make money overnight. To begin with, it was all work and perhaps no money. A little later, there could be some work and enough money to keep you going. Thereafter, your hard work could pay and you could witness a considerable increase in your work and income.

He said these days there were a number of options before a law graduate. He could join a multinational company as a legal adviser, become a teacher or a lawyer. But those who wished to join the legal profession must know that success was guaranteed provided you worked honestly, with diligence and sincerity.

The first All India Annual Sarin Moot Court Competition is being organised at the Army Institute of Law (AIL), here, on October 16 and 17.


Venugopals lecture today

The Army Institute of Law here will host a special lecture by Mr K.K. Venugopal, senior advocate Supreme Court of India here tomorrow.

Mr Venugopal would speak on Supreme Court: the eventful years under the AIL distinguished lecture series 2004. The lecture proposes to begin by examining the first three decades of the history of the Supreme Court when as a result of the Supreme Court invalidating laws relating to land reforms and nationalisation of industries parliament had to pass a series of amendments to the constitution.


Blood donated for thalassaemics

Donors from the Army Institute of Law, including faculty members and students, donated 217 units of blood for thalassaemic children at a blood donation camp organised by the local Dayanand Medical College and Hospital (DMCH) at Mohali yesterday.

Rape victim operated

Doctors at Guru Teg Bahadur Hospital operated four-year-old rape victim after a number of philanthropists poured help in form of cash and kind for her treatment. Students and faculty of the Army Institute of Law, Mohali, today sent Rs 10,000 to the doctors.

Human rights can be a career option

Discarding the age-old notion of human rights being the vocation of volunteers with a soft for militants, senior adviser with the Delhi-based Human Rights Law Network Parul Sharma is in favour of producing young professionals in the field.

She will be conducting an interactive session at Panjab University s Law Department for students of psychology and law departments, besides those of the Army Institute of Law on January 30. The students are required to register for the session a day in advance.

Talking to The Tribune, Ms Sharma said, "As of now, most students are of the opinion that human rights cannot be taken up as a career. No wonder, it is low on the agenda of young advocates".

Giving details, she asserted, "This is a phenomenon prevailing throughout the world. Sadly, most of the law schools are concentrating on the commercial aspect of the subject. In the process, they are becoming more of business schools and are removing human rights from the curriculum. This is leading to a kind of imbalance".

Describing it as "unfortunate", she said, "Human rights should, in fact, be taught to the students from the first year itself, along with the science of law, as both of them are closely linked."

Ms Sharma did her initial education from Stockholm University in Sweden before moving to London on a Chevening fellowship. She did her master’s thesis on death penalty in India before taking up a job with the Swedish Embassy as a political reporter. She later joined the European Commission and is currently working with the Human Rights Law Network — an organisation with 15 centres across the country.

Regarding the workshop, she said, "For the first time, perhaps, about 50 students each of psychology and law would be encouraged to sit together and perform free mind exercises.



Kalam to inaugurate Army Institute of Law

The President of India, Dr A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, will inaugurate the Army Institute of Law (AIL) at Sector 68, Mohali, on December 1.

Training programme inaugurated

In the present situation where humanitarian laws are being violated, “the need to strengthen these laws and to implement them at the time of armed conflicts have become the need of the hour”, said Justice S.S. Sodhi, former Chief Justice, Allahabad High Court and Ractor Army Institute of Law, in his inaugural address at the three-day teachers’ training programme on international humanitarian law, organised by the Army Institute of Law at Patiala today.

Several important issues were discussed during various sessions where Dr Umesh Kadam, Regional Legal Adviser, ICRC, gave an overview of the international humanitarian law and the role of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) which is collaborating this teachers’ training programme with the Army Institute of Law. Dr Kadam also highlighted the background of international humanitarian law, its origin and the need for its effective implementation at present.

He also clarified that the role of the ICRC was to ameliorate the grief of the victims of armed conflict and for this purpose they work with the understanding of the concerned governments of the state to maintain confidentiality so that they may get free access to the persons in distress.
