Having recently demitted office, Justice Midha has joined Galgotias University as Advisor/Professor effective 12 July. The assignment will be in addition to Justice Midha's arbitration practice.
For more than 26 years before being elevated as judge in 2008, Justice Midha practiced law. Between 1989 and 1992, he taught various subjects including Code of Civil Procedure, Indian Evidence Act, Transfer of Property Act, Delhi Rent Control Act, Limitation Act, Arbitration Act etc. at the Campus Law Centre, Faculty of Law, Delhi University. He has also penned books on Amendments to the Code of Civil Procedure and Motor Accident Claims Compensation.
Chancellor of Galgotias University Suneel Galgotia in a press release said, "Justice J.R. Midha's vision and the rich experience would be a great asset to this Institution and to its students and faculty."
At Justice Midha's farewell ceremony, Delhi High Court Bar Association President Mohit Mathur remembered, "I was his student in 1991 and he has impacted my life in great ways personally. I have been the recipient of his generosity. I was always a student who missed classes yet somehow I managed to pass the Civil Procedure Code examination because before the exam he told me to read Section 80. I read it 3-4 times and secured sufficient marks to pass the exam."
