About Centre for Law, Justice and Development (CLJD):

Established in 2018, CLJD envisions revisiting, analysing, and engaging with the development discourse and its interface with the legal discourse. Through this engagement it seeks to influence the discourse in ways that are geared towards securing justice in varied arenas of our existence. It has been specifically working on the rights of the marginalised through empirical research, training, and creating resource material with regard to legal rights.

Objective of the Competition:

The competition opens up an opportunity to share your vision and raise awareness about violence against women, women’s legal rights, and access to justice for women. The goal is to disseminate legal awareness for creating gender sensitisation at the grass-root level. In pursuance of fulfilling these goals the centre has adopted an intersectional approach.
