About the Event
On 30th November 2019, CLPR is organising a lawyers’ learning session with academics, practitioners and judges on ‘Tackling Caste Discrimination Through Law’ at the High Court of Karnataka, Bangalore.
It is commonly acknowledged that caste-based discrimination continues to plague Indian society despite various constitutional and statutory protections. While attempts have been made to confront caste-based discrimination through laws like the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act, 1989, the Protection of Civil Rights Act, 1955 and the Prohibition of Employment as Manual Scavengers and their Rehabilitation Act, 2013, the devadasi prohibition laws, caste-based discrimination occurs rampantly in almost all strata of society.
Therefore, the objective behind this workshop is to increase engagement of lawyers with the laws relating to caste discrimination in India and build an organised lawyers network which can improve access to justice for vulnerable groups.
The session is open and there is no registration fee.
For any questions or to RSVP for the session, please do reach out to Jayalakshmi (+91-7993990601) or Deekshitha Ganesan (+91-9930756599).
