: Judge of the Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul on Saturday underscored the importance of education and financial independence of women for their empowerment.

Inaugurating the golden jubilee celebrations of Dr Ambedkar Government Law College here, the apex court judge said,"Education and making women financially independent will ensure their emancipation."

He said educational institutions should adapt to new changes in the learning process and endeavour to see such changes. "Also, educational institutions should inculcate in the students an ability to think," he said.

Justice V Ramasubramanian, another judge of the apex court, appreciated the law college for its good performance.

Lieutenant Governor of the Union Territory Tamilisai Soundararajan, unveiling the golden jubilee arch of the college, said law is the foundation of a society. She said excellence in legal education and research was important to shape the rule of law.
