academic tour/visit to bombay high court museum

St. John College of Humanities & Sciences, Department of Commerce has organized an Academic/Study Tour/Visit organised on 23rd August,2019 for SYBAF/FYBMS students at the Bombay High Cout Museum, Mumbai . The major objective of the academic tour/ visit was to create awareness about the functions of Bombay High Court. In order to create interest among the students regarding law and legal system such visit is must. In the Bombay High Court Museum, Mumbai total 79 students visited.
The interiors of the museum are designed exactly like a court room. We were amazed at how well the space has been curated- with old legal rolls, portraits of the advocates and a minuscule model of the Bombay High Court in a corner.
We found Barrister M.K Gandhi’s certificate from the year 1891, and his application to study law dating back to 1890s. Vallabhbhai Patel’s certificates and degree were displayed alongside too.
Walk straight up ahead and you will find yourself time-travelling to a court room from 1900 that was modeled after the 20th century court room. Everything had a very British feel attached to it- the wooden chairs, tables, a feather ink pen and a vintage typewriter, ‘Mignon 1905’. To top it off, we found a British advocate’s gown, wig and box displayed safely inside a glass door. The walls of the museum are bearers of portraits and informative charts that recollect the rich and intertwined Indo-British legal history.
We were completely in awe of the museum. It was almost like we discovered a secret door to the world of old judicial legal documents and the British era. It’s a fitting museum for anyone who a) is intrigued by the legal history b) loves the sprawling Victorian architecture of the Bombay High Court.
