About the Competition

The history of our race and civilization is incomplete without the history of law. The study of legal history is significant in the 21st century as it reflects the best thoughts of people in the society which are imbibed in the legislations they make; their daily life best mirrored in the usages and customs which constitute the law of their ordinary transactions.

The present-day legal system is an outcome of conscious and unconscious attempts and decisions to improve the then situation and problems by the legal mechanism. The ongoing legal transplantation with and without social transformation brings numerous gaps that need to be researched and answered through historical inquiries.

In pursuance of our ongoing research and dedication to legal history studies, we, at GNLU, are organizing the first All India Legal History Congress on 14-15 February 2020.
