International Virtual Symposium

The Law, Humanities and Social Sciences (LHSS) Collective at Maharashtra National Law University Mumbai is back with the second edition of its International Symposium being hosted from 11th to 12th May, 2024 for probing into the crises faced by law in today’s society.

About LHSS Collective

Available research on the intersection of law with humanities and social sciences remains focused on and originates from the Global North. Perspectives from the Global South remain marginal to such discussions. MNLU Mumbai’s Law, Humanities and Social Sciences Collective seeks to redress this imbalance by providing platforms for expression and exchange of ideas that craft and critique interdisciplinary from a Global South perspective.
