Operating in 26 different countries across the globe, the Network for International Law Students (NILS) is an international, independent, non-political and non-profit organization that contributes to the arena of legal education by hosting various competitions, workshops, seminars, conferences, webinars, residential school programs, delegation programs, legal aid activities and miscellaneous educational activities.
NILS – University of Dhaka Chapter (NILS DU), the first local chapter under NILS Bangladesh, was created in 2016 with a view to reaching out to the students from Department of Law, University of Dhaka and expand the network of NILS here.
As a part of its skill-building sessions for law students, NILS DU Chapter is holding the first session titled ‘Effective Case Reading Techniques’ where law students would get hands-on experience on how to crack a case, the essential techniques of reading a judgment and identifying the ratio decidendi and obiter dicta from the full text of a judgment accurately.
Law students have to go through an extremely rigorous curriculum, stacking their daily hours in reading long judgments, law journals and reviews as well as cracking the texts of numerous statutes. As such, cruising through this enormous amount of reading materials is quite tedious and becomes a daunting task without very little to no strategic knowledge. Hence, this skill-building session aims to equip the students of Department of Law, University of Dhaka with the technical know-hows of reading case laws effectively.
The session will be conducted by Professor Dr. Muhammad Ekramul Haque of Department of Law, University of Dhaka. Dr. Haque has published research articles on Constitutional Law, Human Rights and different issues of Islamic Law in reputed peer-reviewed law journals both at home and abroad. He is in the Editorial Board of the Journal of the Faculty of Law, University of Dhaka and was a Member of the Faculty Board in the Faculty of Law, Monash University in Australia.
