ABOUT DAKSH

Daksh is a non-profit organization dedicated to the improvement of democratic governance in India.

This competition on Legislative Drafting is aimed at enhancing the understanding, application and interpretation of the law by students, by laying emphasis on the aspect of problem-solving as well as constitutional coherence.

Through this competition, Daksh seeks to encourage students to engage efficiently with obstacles to good governance and to cultivate a more participative approach to political processes and democracy.

LEGISLATIVE DRAFTING CHALLENGE

It is with great pleasure that we announce the Second Legislation Drafting  Competition, 2014.

The success of last years’ competition prompted us to look  toward making this Competition an annual event.

The participants last year, ranging from High School students to law undergraduates showed us the vast  potential of this generation to understand various aspects of the law.

This year, we are introducing a second round to the Competition. The top 5  (five) teams, based on scores,shall each appear before a panel consisting of  judges and the remaining 4 (four) teams, in a Parliamentary set-up to defend  their draft Bill and submit to questions.

The team offering the best defense shall be awarded additional prize money, to be announced at the Valedictory Ceremony.
