About the Organizer

TNNLU is located in the Srirangam Taluk of the Tiruchirappalli Corporation, formerly known as Trichinopoly. This institution of learning was established by the Government of Tamil Nadu by an Act of State Legislature (Act No. 9 of 2012) to provide quality legal education.

About Legal Centre for Women’s Welfare

The Centre was established in March 2020. The Centre is the brainchild of the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. V.S. Elizabeth, who is an expert in feminist jurisprudence and has a great concern regarding issues related to women. Law is an effective tool in bringing a change in society, hence the purpose of establishing the Centre is to transform society through changing the attitudes towards women and the status of women by working on Women and Law.

The Centre focuses on all issues related to women, broadly covering Violence against Women, the role of the State in empowering women, the social impediments faced by women and the role of law in addressing these issues.
