About the E-Conference  

The world has been grasped by a global pandemic which is distinct from its predecessors due to its enormity both in terms of  scale and effect. The pandemic termed as COVID-19 by the World Health Organisation is not  solely limited as a health crisis but has also taken over the socio-economic spectrum where it is  causing rampant mayhem.  In these unprecedented times, human rights violations have been on the rise, posing a challenge to the justice delivery mechanism and this has been of foremost priority to human rights  organisations, international forums as well as governing bodies of various countries. The pandemic has also had a substantial impact on the constitutional debates regarding protection of fundamental rights pertaining to legitimacy and genuinity of various technological developments and programmes. This period has also cast its shadow over the environment creating areas of discussions such as bio medical waste management, regulation of genomic editing of viruses and prohibition of inhumane animal treatment. Besides these COVID induced challenges, the nation is also grappling with numerous contemporary challenges for instance, passage of the farmer acts, dilution of labour laws and reduced GST compensation to states.

In the light of the aforementioned predicaments, School of Law, CHRIST proposes its 11th  National E-Conference on “Contemporary Legal Issues and Reflections Amidst the Pandemic” which aims at addressing some of the most crucial and imperative concerns that the world is battling with, and at achieving plausible solutions to these legal, social, economic and environmental issues that we face as a global community in current times.  The committee shall conduct webinars on the themes of the National E-Conference for all the participating students and professionals with a view of encouraging research culture in these tough times, and to provide a better understanding on the respective themes.
