Symbiosis Law School, Pune is organizing the 7th International Annual Research Conference on Rule of Law in Context: Indian and Global Perspectives and it has been scheduled for 27th, 28th and 29th September 2018.
Rule of Law in Context (ROLIC) represents the point of arrival of Faculty of Law, Symbiosis International (Deemed University) at maturity with its own imprint in the world of legal research. The journey which began by showcasing in-house research, building on research excellence within and as avenue for developing new ideas as well as updating research ideas with skills in 2012 as a national conference; grew into international participation by 2015. This provides added impetus to the thrust areas, excellence centres and innovations of Symbiosis International (Deemed University). ROLIC is in keeping with lead research trends, addressing the need for own legal reality of India to be reflecting the need for narrowing the gap between the idea and reality of a rule of society. It is hoped that such discovery and rethinking will bring the legal community closer to serious soul searching to build a stronger rule of law in India, for, a great research must affirm life. It must measure the march of rule of law behaviour of a society and hence indicate the march of civilisation.
