Justice Verma Committee Recommendations must be a part of Legal Curriculum as per Jaising, first woman additional solicitor general. She called upon law students (especially female students) to take up litigation and invigorated them so that they can come forward and take leadership roles.

The concrete steps should be taken in order to curb the violence and misbehave that goes on in the workplace for women and the recommendations made by the Justice Verma led committee must find its place in the law syllabus.

The three member Justice Verma Committee was formed on December 23, 2012 and was headed by the former Chief Justice of Supreme Court Mr. Verma. The committee was made to recommend amendments needed in the criminal law to provide scope for expeditious trial and greater punishments for those who are accused of committing sexual assault against woman in any particular workplace.

The report of the committee was submitted on January 23, last year, in which the report recommended various actions that should be taken up regarding the laws related to rape, sexual harassment, trafficking, child sexual abuse, medical examinations of victims and other misbehavioral conducts.

It is really important to include the recommendations in the law syllabus as the lawyers are the one who have the primary role and responsibility to bring in social and political change through the process of social engineering.
