About the webinar

After successful conduct of guest lecturers and national webinar, with an illuminary panel of speakers, who have attracted students of law, academicians, research scholars and dignitaries from all over the country, the Centre puts a further step to decipher the needs of the era.

To accommodate the economic aspirations, a country needs to have a proper set of laws and policies which can protect the economic system and provide appropriate mechanisms. The era hence demands efficient laws and their operation in the legal world. The legal scholars hence play an important role to strike a balance between the economic endeavours and limits of the law. Through this webinar, we wish to muse on the dimension of the study of “law and economics” as an indispensable part of legal studies.
