Addressing the fourth convocation of Tamil Nadu National Law University in Trichy, Justice Muralidhar told the students to ask themselves how far they have been able to imbibe the constitutional values in their life. The law school should have taught them the importance of two constitutional values which mattered most to BR Ambedkar — fraternity and dignity.
“The law school has perhaps taught you to be civil in your disagreements, decent in your debates, and informed in your perspectives. Even more than a graduate from any college or university, I feel a law graduate has an additional responsibility in walk the talk. If you are able to have differences with others resolved in a civil manner, through discussion and debate without resorting to violence, it means you have taken a significant step towards progress,” he said.
A total of 116 students, including 56 men and 60 women, were awarded degrees. A total of 50 students from BA LLB (honours), 53 students from B.Com LLB (honours) and 13 from LLM received degrees.
Shradha Pandey of BA LLB (honours) was announced woman topper in 2022 batch students of both BA LLB (honours) and B.Com LLB (honours). Seven more students were also awarded for their ranking.
Chancellor of TNNLU and acting chief justice of Madras high court T Raja presided over the convocation.
