Dinesh Vyas Memorial Government Law College National Legal Essay Competition: Submit by March 4

The Magazine Committee of Government Law College, Mumbai, annually organises a national level legal essay writing competition, The Dinesh Vyas Memorial Government Law College National Legal Essay Competition.

Writing is a proclivity that a lawyer must never detach from himself, and thus, each year, the Magazine Committee of Government Law College, Mumbai, organises a national level legal essay writing competition, The Dinesh Vyas Memorial Government Law College National Legal Essay Competition.

The Dinesh Vyas Memorial Government Law College National Legal Essay Competition is sponsored in the memory of Late Mr Dinesh Vyas, one of GLC’s most distinguished alumni, who obtained his LLB degree from Government Law College in 1967.

The Magazine Committee of the Government Law College now invites entries for the same.

The topics this year are

  1. Examine the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Amendment Act, 2019 and the outcomes of its implementation. Is it a rational regulation or a tactic of pigeonholing criticisers?
  2. With reference to Shafin Jahan v. K.M. Ashokan, elucidate the Supreme Court’s decision to uphold the Freedom of Choice and Religion.
  3. Comment on the Personal Data Protection Bill, 2019 with reference to the Government’s power to obtain anonymised data.
  4. The rise of majoritarian governments worldwide has led several to wonder: “Quis Custodict Ipsos Custodes?”. Comment on the same.
  5. In light of Kaushal Kishore v State UP, elaborate on whether Article 19(1)(a) is restricted by other fundamental rights, specifically Article 21.
