About the Seminar

PES University, Faculty of Law is organising a one-day National Seminar on INDIAN CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM IN THE NEW MILLENNIUM.

There is no gainsaying the fact that an effective criminal justice system has been regarded as a quintessential prerequisite for the orderly functioning of a society. It’s said that disputes and quarrels are as old as hills, and conflicts are second nature to human beings. But, the ancients had realized quite early on that unless the criminal elements were regulated and restrained, mankind would become extinct within no time.

India is currently undergoing this phase wherein the new-gen offences and defenses are making the revisiting of the criminal justice system sine qua non. This seminar aims to appreciate the changing facets of criminal law in India in the backdrop of the global scenario with the following sub-themes.

  • Sub- Theme I: Socio-legal Implications of Criminalization of Triple Talaq
