Remembering S.P. Sathe: 13th National Conference on Taxation Laws

Indian Law Society is pleased to invite participation and submissions of Research paper for Remembering S.P. Sathe: 13th National Conference on Taxation Laws scheduled to be held on 09th and 10th of February 2019.

ILS Law College annually organises Remembering S. P. Sathe event, comprising of a Public Memorial lecture, a Conference and a Moot Court Competition, all based on a common theme, in fond and loving memory of its illustrious former Principal, Late Professor S.P. Sathe. The College has upheld this tradition for last 12 years with a unique theme of subject being taken up every year. The subject theme for this year is Taxation, both Direct and Indirect.

Taxation is perceived as a vast and highly complex subject and majority of students studying law dread studying Taxation laws. Even further, reluctance in taking up taxation as their areas of practice is pertinent. Consequentially, the practice of taxation is restricted to a small number of advocates even though taxation laws are one of the most extensively applicable laws in India. In order for the country to witness good taxation legal practitioners in future, it is imperative that the students are allowed a platform to understand and learn these vast and complex laws.

Through this Conference, the ILS Law College wishes to avail the opportunity of discussing and deliberating on Taxation Laws with invaluable inputs from the doyens in the field of taxation. This will help the students to appreciate the niceties of the subject and in our most humble belief, would also kindle interest in the minds of students of our college to take up further study or research or practice in taxation laws.

In the conference, we intend to cover certain core topics under the taxation laws which form the bedrock for understanding and appreciating taxation laws further. We sincerely believe that knowledge and clarity on these topics would provide them with various perspectives to this subject and would help them develop a holistic understanding.
