An interactive session with Dr. Aniruddha Rajput (member of UN International Law Commission) was organized in Dr. Ram Manohar Lohiya National Law University by Seminar and Lecture Committee in collaboration with Think India on Monday. In session open to all, there was a turnout of around three hundred people from all over the district who were provided with certificate of participation.
Dr. Rajput gave insights on “Why International Law matters for India?” He also spoke on relation of India and China with respect to South Asian countries and how India is emerging as a global leader. Various international treaties were brought into light by him and role of international law commission was also discussed with the students.
Dr. Rajput said that India as well as the International Law is changing with a rapid speed. Today India asserts its power and it should learn from Singapore which has placed itself to the group of first world countries. He further said that previously the whole complaint mechanism was in the favour of western countries but now India has learnt to counter the dominance of western lobby. Apart from importance of International Law, the relation of India with other countries in South Asia and China was also discussed.

Along with him the President of Seminar and Lecture committee, Dr. Monika Srivastava, Chairman of State Bar Council and other members of Bar council were present during the session.
