Institute of Law, Nirma University (ILNU) in September month is organising various lectures and certificate courses by the Professors of International repute. In the list of events, first one was a distinguished lecture by Prof. Stephen Barnes, Assistant Dean, Graduate and International Programs, Penn State Law on the topic “U.S. Constitution and Impeachment Powers” where he discussed that US constitution has very vaguely left the Impeachment process undefined as to how high should a crime be so that a president can be impeached. He also talked about the Impeachment process being very complex and referred to the historical instances of impeachment in US that had never passed above conviction process. He referred to examples like Johnson, Richard Nickson and finally Bill Clinton. He also concluded by saying that maybe Donald Trump as President faces the same fate of Impeachment procedure after mid-term elections. But, he was happy that the procedure of impeachment is complicated as not any ruling party can mishandle president position and rule out a president whenever they want.

Also, there was a certificate course conducted by renowned Prof. Shamnad Basheer, Founder (IDIA/ SPICY IP/ P-PIL) and Visiting Professor of Law, NLSIU, Bangalore from 10th September to 12th September 2018 on topic of “Case To "Case Plus" Method: A New Pedagogy” where he organised courtroom proceeding for the famous case of Donoghue v. Stevenson. He also talked about a certain new case reading mechanism where individuals can link many contemporary topics and cases while reading the original case benefiting students to widen their learning scope.  He also conducted a major discussion on Adhaar issue that had been a debated issue all over the country.

A course is currently conducted by Prof. William Fox, Former Dean and Professor of Law, Columbus School of Law, USA on International Business Transactions from 10th September to 10th October 2018.
