The Society of Law and Literature, National Law University Odisha, Cuttack was established in the year 2020.

“Books were only one type of receptacle where we stored a lot of things we were afraid we might forget. There is nothing magical in them, at all. The magic is only in what books say, how they stitched the patches of the universe together into one garment for us.”

—Ray Bradbury in Fahrenheit 451

Bradbury’s thought seems so relevant even today as books play many roles in our life like that of a companion, guide, lover, informant and inspirer. With this notion, the Society of Law and Literature of National Law University Odisha is organizing a 1st National Book Review Competition.
