NMIMS, Kirit P Mehta School of Law is organising its 2nd National Seminar on Feasibility of Uniform Civil Code in India on 7th March 2020.

The family is a diverse, strong and binding institution in the Indian society. Indian marriages vary vastly considering the variety of customs and traditions associated with them. Being dynamic in nature, changing trends are observed in areas such as age at marriage, inter-caste marriage, arranged versus love matches, matching horoscopes, etc.

The main motive of this Conference is to further productive discussions on the issues relating to the family and marriage, and the laws pertaining to them. It also aims to explore the possibility of incorporation of the Uniform Civil Code thereby bringing all religious and social groups under the purview of a typical stage, which is currently lacking due to the administration of differing laws in the area. The Conference also aspires to explore the role of the Uniform Civil Code in newer dimensions, and in light of the issues currently faced by society.
