A Cabinet paper presented by Justice Minister Thalatha Atukorala seeking approval to include ‘law’ as a subject to the school curriculum, had been approved today.

Speaking on the achievement, the Minister said providing law education to the children from an early age was vital.

“This is a victory of the present government. Being educated about basic laws and aspects such as the Constitution since at an early stage helps students in facing day to day legal issues in a better way. Knowing laws and having an understanding about the Penal Code will also help in reducing crimes,” she said.

She said people tend to commit crimes due to lack of understanding about repercussions of these crimes.

The incorporation of the law subject to the curriculum would be done with the guidance of Education Minister Akila Viraj Kariyawasam.

    yes start them young so they can find loopholes to bend or break the law by the time they are adults.

    Very good move. Then these politicians will not be able to play the fool with the new generation, for eg. twist the constitution to their advantage etc.

    Palugaswewa Monday, 07 January 2019 05:21 PM

    Has the President given his approval for this? Because he is the one who was battered by the 'Ginipenella" and learnt a good lesson when tried to fool people who were not aware of the law.

    Very good move.

    Good move! Also consider teaching law our 'lawyers' in the parliament who have no issue with stealing people's money!

    Kingsley Wijesinhe Monday, 07 January 2019 07:48 PM

    Akila Viraj Kariyawasam is neither a lawyer nor an educationist, so it is unlikely that he will be able to provide any guidance in this matter.

    Very good news for the students and parents, Much needed step has been taken by the government for the education system in sri lanka
