Speaking at the 10th Annual Convocation of the National Law School of India University (NLSIU) here, Mr. Murthy urged Indian law schools and universities to have more and more academic exchanges with international universities. With the GATT norms coming into force from 2005, the Indian service sector would be opened for foreign investment. Hence global business practices should be implemented, he added.
The NLSIU conferred the degree of "Doctor of Law, honoris causa" on C.G. Veeramanthri, former Justice of the International Court of Justice and former Justice of the Supreme Court of Sri Lanka, in recognition of his contribution to International Law and Justice.
