Tamil Nadu National Law University is organising the 2nd All India Legal History Congress. The programme is scheduled to be held virtually.
The first-ever All India Legal History Congress was organized and conducted by the Gujarat National Law University in February 2020 in Gandhinagar. It brought together teachers, students and other aficionados of Legal History. There were quite a few interesting papers presented demonstrating how much such a platform was needed and the immense possibilities for research in this field. While history of law and the judicial system, in different periods, have been taught in law colleges for quite a long time in India and a few books written, there has been very little interest shown by either historians or law teachers in India in the actual pursuit of Legal History. Most good scholarship is the result of the painstaking work of foreign scholars, mostly from Western countries. At the same time with the proliferation of the institutions offering the five years integrated Under Graduate law programmes Legal History is being systematically taught in all of them across the country.

However, till last year there was no platform for sharing their research interests and st findings. The 1 All India Legal History Congress followed by the formation of the All India Legal History Association filled that need. It is in this background that the Tamil nd Nadu National Law University (TNNLU), Tiruchirappalli is organizing the 2 All India st nd Legal History Congress (AILHC) on May 21 and 22 2021 online. This Legal History Congress is being organized with the generous financial support of the Government of Tamil Nadu. We are grateful to our Pro Chancellor, the Hon’ble Thiru C. Ve. Shanmugham, Minister for Law, Courts, Prisons and Mines & Minerals of the Government of Tamil Nadu.

The theme for this year is “Pursuit of Legal History of st India in the 21 Century”.
