Aligarh: The research methodology is the first step towards an invention, and judicious use of technology can be beneficial to a researcher” , said Professor Akhtar Haseeb, former ProVice-Chancellor while addressing the concluding session of a three-day workshop on research methodology organised by the Department of Law.
He advised the law students to increase the radius of their research as it must contain the analysis of philosophers, understanding of courts at different levels, parliamentary and constitutional debates concerning the day to day life of an individual.
Addressing the gathering, Prof. Mohd. Shakeel Ahmed Samdani, Course Director and Dean, Faculty of Law, AMU said that Law is a profession where there is no retirement age and a lawyer can practice in court till his last breath. He advised the delegates who attended the workshop to work hard as ‘there is no substitute for hard work.’ The research scholars should focus on their research work and try to complete their PhD. work within three years. The students and the research scholars should respect their teachers and supervisors.
