The Centre for Law and Society has great pleasure in announcing the 3rd edition of the GNLU Essay Competition on Law and Society, a national-level essay competition, under the able guidance of Prof. Upendra Baxi and in collaboration with reputed firms and organizations such as Luthra and Luthra Law Offices, Verist Law, ActionAid India, Centre for Social Research, Centre for Social Justice and LawLex.
The theme of the competition is “The Careful Questioning of Socio-legal Premises”. The recent decisions pronounced by the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India have widespread ramifications, leading to the usage of social tools or realities as an accepted method of interpreting the Constitution and statutory provisions. Development of jurisprudence along these lines is necessitated alongside critical socio-legal analysis of judicial developments. The aim is to assess the methodology used, argue for or against the alleged overstepping of the Apex Court’s role under the scheme of separation of powers and the relevance of the interpretation or policy laid down by the Court.
The following sub-themes have been identified as requiring academic consideration in the Indian context:
