‘Law’ as subject to the school curriculum

Thalatha Athukorala

Justice Minister Thalatha Atukorala seeking approval to include ‘law’ as a subject to the school curriculum, had been approved today.

The Minister said providing law education to the children from an early age was vital.

“This is a victory of the present government. Being educated about basic laws and aspects such as the Constitution since at an early stage helps students in facing day to day legal issues in a better way. Knowing laws and having an understanding about the Penal Code will also help in reducing crimes, people tend to commit crimes due to lack of understanding about repercussions of these crimes.” She said.
