About the Newsletter:
The News bulletin released by the Society for Advancement of the Criminal Justice tries to incorporate all significant updates of the past year in the area of Criminal law and justice. Despite many news events taking place and legal verdicts being pronounced in the past year, there was absolutely nothing at one place to which every criminal law enthusiast can refer and update himself. This newsletter has been prepared with this aim of compiling details and headlines of every significant event that occurred in this area on a single platform.
The newsletter, besides containing information about the events conducted and guests hosted by the SACJ in the past year, also contains snippets, editorials and op-eds on the field of Crimes and criminal law. The bulletin does not aim to restrict its access solely to the legal fraternity but also to the common man to whom any news of crime appeals the most. As per the words of Deepanshu Agarwal, the Convenor of the NUJS SACJ, “The aim of this newsletter is not to merely update the readers of the events that occurred in the area of crimes, criminals and criminal law, but to allow them to have their own opinion regarding the issue and write, debate, deliberate and discuss the same. Only this will allow the SACJ to fulfil its core objective of promoting discourse in its area”.
