Call for Papers: Comparative Constitutional Law and Administrative Law Quarterly [Vol. 4, Issue 3]

About: The Comparative Constitutional Law and Administrative Law Quarterly is an open-access online journal initiated at National Law University, Jodhpur, aiming to foster debate on contemporary issues in comparative constitutional law and administrative law, with a comparative perspective. The first issue of CALQ was published in 2013. Any debate on the constitutional and administrative law would typically involve aspects of law, politics as well as philosophy. It is this that makes this sphere of law so fascinating, along with the fact that it has the ability to influence the lives of people from all sections of society, in a way few others can. Thus, it is not altogether uncommon to find people who are not necessarily lawyers or policymakers debating a constitutional law topic over a newspaper and a cup of tea, sometimes without even realizing that they are doing so! Constitutions decide how our leaders must conduct themselves and how they can act in the discharge of their functions. Besides this, how much privacy we are entitled to in our daily lives, to what extent we can express what we want to, even who we can marry, are all at their core, constitutional law questions. It is thus that our journal aims to provide a space where scholars, students as well as legal practitioners can share opinions on constitutional and administrative law themes.…

Call for Papers: Jus Dicere’s National Seminar on Access to Criminal Justice & Legal Reforms in India

Jus Dicere’s National Seminar on Access to Criminal Justice & Legal Reforms in India Date: August 26th, 2018 (Sunday); Venue: Constitution Club of India, New Delhi Concept Note: Justice is a nebulous concept. It is the end all legislations, authorities and societies seek to achieve. Access to criminal justice forms the most vital and impactful part of any legal system and although measuring the same is not possible as the figures keep getting lost between the number of crimes taking place, the ones reported, the ones where convictions are actually achieved and the ones that get lost in the system, the same need to rein enforced and reinstated through legal reforms. For ensuring access to criminal justice and bringing about legal reforms in India, it is imperative to appreciate that the legal justice system in India is hinged on a number of components: Police and Investigating Agencies, Accused, Victims & Witnesses, Courts, Tribunals, Women and Juvenile Offenders, Legal Aid Authorities all of which are to work in coherence to ensure that for any crime committed, the accused does not go scott free and that the victim is not penalized and justice is both served and felt. At the same time while ensuring this, it is important to keep into perspective the other important principles of justice administration like double jeopardy; that the guilt needs to be proved beyond reasonable doubt, that the burden of proof is on the prosecution to ensure that no innocent person is ever sentenced guilty.…
