Humans dwell in societies that are administered by the Rule of Law. Law is a driving force that instructs human behaviour and brings out a society that has law as its fundamental value rather than the historical view of divinity rule. Imparting the legal views in public, administrations have developed legal education systems. Human science, which provides knowledge, skills, philosophies, theories that are of great importance to teach a universally acceptable art of law, is legal education. Legal education is an umbrella concept that includes legal teaching, legal research, and the practical legal skills of advocacy required in the court of law. This research on Legal education In India and the UK: A Comparative Analysis was inspired by the massive number of young minds whose future is shaped by this very legal education provided to them. Law professionals act as a saviour of justice in the court of law and should make revolutionary changes to the community. The present curriculum frameworks of legal education could not provide legal teaching, legal research, and the practical legal skills of advocacy required in the court of law. This research aims to identify how the legal education imparted to the students is far from its purpose that aimed at creating law professionals that are an asset to society. This research identifies that the gap between the theories of legal education and their practical implementation was huge and needed bridging research that would help bring the change. The major aim of this study is to bring out the differences between the two systems in the context of the legal knowledge imparted to the students and the curriculum adopted by the two. In this research, I have tried to highlight the comparative element that was the basis of comparison.
