Law Ministry to Launch a TV Channel on Law & Legal Studies

Ministry-of-Law-and-Justice

Very soon a television channel titled ‘Law and Legal Studies Channel’ will be launched by the Law Ministry to show legal awareness programmes and debates on important court verdicts. The ‘law and legal studies channel’, as per the ministry’s plan,will become a 24-hour affair once it has enough stock of programmes, including debate shows and documentaries.

Human Resources Development ministry has been approached by the Law ministry to provide it with one channel from its free-to-air DTH bouquet called ‘Swayam Prabha’. Law Ministry has already started the leg work to create a bank of programmes for the proposed channel.

Entries have been invited on short films and legal literacy. It plans to hold a legal literacy video contest to get the best of short films. During the UPA rule, it had planned a channel dedicated to the Supreme Court.But as the apex court had reservations on recording of its proceedings, the idea was shelved.

The ministry is considering hiring leading Bollywood directors to produce programmes for the proposed project. As a part of this first of its kind initiative, the Department of Justice seeks to primarily collaborate with Ministry of Human Resource Development, Department of Higher Education, in its Swayam Prabha Project that run 32 Direct-to- Home Channels to telecast high quality educational programmes 24X7 basis. The selected quality entries will get space on the law and legal studies channel of the Swayam Prabha to be telecast for wider dissemination and viewership, the ministry said.
