CAN ‘Vedanam’ | Call for Student Editors

About CAN Foundation

The CAN Foundation is an entity established for working towards promotion of students/alumni connected with all the National Law Universities in India. The Foundation, which is a body of Alumni drawn from various NLUs, is conceptualized as a helping hand to aid financially underprivileged legal geniuses in overcoming their hardships. Our focus is on a robust integration of the student community with the already well-established Alumni in such a fashion that it paves the path for students to be exposed to more opportunities within different avenues of Law.

About Vedanam

As an endeavour to increase Research Oriented Academic Writing among Law Students and Professionals alike, we at CAN Foundation have introduced ‘Vedanam’ to the Legal community. CAN’s Vedanam is an Academic Wing of the Foundation, aiming to provide a platform for Dhananjay and Eklavya Scholars and Law students across the nation. We believe that Academic and Legal discourse on topics of contemporary relevance is one of the essential aspects of learning to attain proficiency in any field. The exposure it gives to the students, alongside helping them in developing critical thought and an analytical outlook, is tremendous.  One of the dear ideals of the CAN Foundation is Legal Literacy and increasing access to the same, a goal it has been working diligently towards realizing, since its inception. CAN’s Vedanam will not only supplement Legal Literature on a range of contemporary issues in the field of Law but will also promote the Object and Vision of the Foundation by encouraging more students to associate with the Foundation.
