Research and Publication Cell, Symbiosis Law School, Nagpur is organizing a National Essay Writing Competition on Access to Justice: Judiciary During the Pandemic

About the Competition

The spread of coronavirus has drastically impacted human life and the economy of the nation alike. On the health front, the trajectory of Covid-19 is far from over and its adverse effects still felt. Apart from the uncertainties associated with Covid, these unprecedented times have also brought to fore the loopholes in our system and thrown fresh challenges in our ways. Judiciary as an Institution is also affected by the same.

While most of the academic evaluations have been primarily focussing on the need to develop strategies to cope with the challenging times, it is equally important to reflect on the achievements and shortcomings of the institutions during such troubled times, which will enable us to create more robust institutions and processes.
