Symbiosis Law School, Pune shall be hosting the 15th edition of our Annual Cultural Fest, Symbhav 2023 from 24th March to 26th March 2023. ‘Symbhav’ is a student-driven cultural extravaganza which aims to bring together students from different disciplines across the country and abroad to provide a platform for mutual learning and growth.
The fest hosts over 40 events this year including the 6th edition of our SLS P Conclave’23 where we aim to provide a platform for expounding new ideas, deliberating upon new themes, and delving into the creative minds of India’s youth via organising an Legal Panel Discussion-cum-Interactive Session with eminent personalities. This year, Conclave aims at building all-around knowledge and hone various analytical and intellectual skills of the students through discourse and discussion.
The legal panel discussion-cum-interactive session seeks to encourage a culture of deliberation within the college on various socio-economic-legal topics. It will act as a forum where the students shall have the opportunity to inculcate within themselves an acumen for the legal analysis and supplement their academic learning with legal awareness. The platform will not only allow the audience to witness an engaging dialogue between the most revered legal figures of the country but also to express and clarify their own views and opinions by way of the interactive session.
