HPNLU Shimla to organise National Conference on Paradigmatic Shifts in Law and Justice in 21st Century : Challenges & Opportunities

Himachal Pradesh National Law University, Shimla is organising a National Conference on “Paradigmatic Shifts in Law and Justice in 21st Century : Challenges & Opportunities” from December 8-10, 2017 at HPNLU Shimla.

About the Conference: This  conference is intended to cause sincere reflections on the issues, which have been discoursing stock since the starting of 21st Century. Hopefully academics will be able to contribute towards settling concerns which have not been hitherto satisfactorily settled and also which are at a very nascent stage but surely comprise of crucial concerns. The 21st   century    where   the   pace   of social transformation and its consequences- both liberating and deleterious, for individual and collective existence has become increasingly commensurable and,  therefore, more challenging to explain and interpret. In particular, our laws and mechanisms of justice delivery today seem beset with questions of a nature unforeseen in human history. Numerous experiments in the domains of legislation, interpretation and execution seem to have thrown up novel challenges with regard to their real meanings for the lives of individuals and communities alike. The Conference is a modest endeavor by the University to facilitate spontaneous and original thinking on these kinds of problems.
