Call for Papers: National Seminar on Feminine Jurisprudence & Gender Bias Laws


Particulars of Event:

The National Seminar envisages a platform for young researchers, both students and faculty members, Jurists, Members of NGOs and other intellectuals from all over the country to come together to emanate and enhance an in depth understanding of reformative laws relating to Gender Justice in India.
