‘Law’ as subject to the school curriculum
Posted in Local News
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.

Ah! That is a good idea coming from this ” wally akka”
Hear is the lesson.
(THE ONE ONLY LAW IN SRI LANKA IS ” NO LAWS” ) end of the lesson.
we are enough of lawyers as it is. Most likely these lawyers may find employment in the teaching profession provided that they have gone through some form of university education!
What is wanting is not so much the law but civics as it was taught decades back and about the constitution at least the articles of the constitution so that the people are aware of the constitution through which the country is vgoverned!
We are at the cross roads to a constitutional crisis and the mob led by Ranil is canvassing a new constitution. People ought to decided as to whether Ranil has the right to call for a new constitution without a mandate.
Ranil leads a minority government cobbled together with dissident members without who has no right to be there 25 of whom are not even elected thereby no right to a vote on paramount isssues like the constitution!
So silly woman forget about teaching law at o level do not muddle the school curricula with muddled think and use your vote to prop your feeble government until the next election
I totally agree with the comments of SG. This is another crazy idea from a government minister. Law is a specialised subject which should be considered only at a graduate/postgraduate level. The minister says that a knowledge of the penal code will help in reducing crime. Making such far-fetched statements without providing any evidence is the current “globalised” strategy. The requirement of the day is the study of CIVICS at school level as indicated by SG. Civics is the study of good citizenship – not only the rights of the citizen but more importantly, the RESPONSIBILITIES of a good citizen.
