With the commencement of the new JSC Academic Year 2023-24, the present Executive Board of the Committee has decided to conduct a National Article Writing Competition to provide an academic platform for the young and brilliant legal minds of the country to edge and showcase their research, analytical and writing skills.
The central motive of this competition is to give rise to a formal opportunity where constructive opinions on the contemporaneous jurisprudential issue of paramount importance and fundamental relevance can, under the guidance of our sub-themes, be fearlessly deliberated upon.
The competition is open for all the law students enrolled under any undergraduate, postgraduate or doctoral course at any college or University recognised by Bar Council of India.
