Jharkhand High Court issues summons over lack of infrastructure at NUSRL, Ranchi

The Bar Association of the Jharkhand High Court filed a plea regarding the poor infrastructure at the National University of Study and Research in Law (NUSRL), Ranchi. The bench, comprising Chief Justice Ravi Ranjan and Justice Sujit Narayan Prasad, while hearing the plea, observed, “It is made clear that since so many years have been lost, by now we hope and trust that there will be no delay in coming up with a plan so that the University may have a good infrastructure and teaching and non-teaching faculties. Time is now the essence of the matter and thus, further delay in making discussions and throwing the responsibilities on each other’s shoulder will not be appreciated.”
“We are sorry to say that till date the National University of Study and Research in Law, Ranchi is not equipped with proper infrastructure. Even the University is not having a good, proper and workable library. Apart from that, many infrastructures are also lacking, as has been pointed out by the learned counsel for the Law University,” read the order issued by the court. Making these critical observations the court has summoned the chief secretary of the government of Jharkhand, Ranchi; the state’s principal secretary, Department of Finance, Ranchi and the state’s principal secretary, Department of Building Construction, for the next hearing.

Seminar on marginalisation at Punjab University

University Institute of Legal Studies of Punjab University is organising a one-day seminar on “Marginalisation in India: Socio-economic Aspects and Constitutional Perspective” on March 21, 2020. Marginalisation is a global problem that impacts negatively upon societies across the world. Marginalisation usually talks of social inequality in the form of hierarchy where one is at the top-most level and the other may be at the lowest ebb. Marginalisation has been conventionally conceived in a specific societal context with distinctive connotation to delineate social groups living in peripheral, adverse situations, at times with alleged negative attributes. However, in the present-day changing scenario, the concept of marginalisation has undergone several new alterations.
The seminar will provide a platform to deliberate and propose suggestions on important themes like conceptualisation of marginalisation, historical vision of marginalisation and legislative framework, role of judiciary in protecting the interests of marginalised community, role of state in formulating and Implicating policies regarding marginalisation and role of NGOs and financial institutions in uplifting marginal communities and so on. The University has invited research papers from academicians, practitioners, research scholars and students on issues related to the theme.
Authors of the selected abstracts will be given an opportunity to present their papers during the seminar.
