In the new millennium, one witnesses a paradigm shift in legal education and pedagogy. One is reminded of Lord Tennyson’s words “Old order changeth yielding place to new”. Liberalization, globalization and homogenization of the world community make new demands and pose fresh challenges to our established systems and practices and, therefore, it is time to drop the old stereotyped notions of law, state and governance of Austinian tradition and to aim at a ‘Brave New World’ of equity and justice.
