Globalization has raised so many challenges to developing countries like India but on the other hand the bright side of coin shows that it has produced many opportunities in every sector and one amongst them is legal education. Many reforms have been made after independence in Indian legal education system but still a lot needs to be done to compete with international legal education. There is a dire need to revamp the legal education system of India in the light of globalization. The major challenges to be met out are related with teaching process, infrastructure of legal institutions, developments of practical skills to deal with various situations arising out of globalization. Indian legal education system requires some reformations with the quality of legal studies which can create spectacular lawyers to the society at global level. The reformations in Indian legal system should be such as to cope up with the growing demands of people and to handle the complexities of different issues because lawyers are considered to be the backbone of the society and they work as an engineer to build a better platform to provide solutions to the disputes among people. The Bar Council of India has proposed to amend the Advocates Act 1961. If implemented, the set of proposals shall surely help to renovate the legal profession in the country at par with Globalization. This process can introduce a drastic change in the entire thread of the Indian legal education system.
