About the Institute

The National University of Advanced Legal Studies (NUALS), formerly National Institute for Advanced Legal Studies, is a uni-disciplinary university in Kochi, India for undergraduate, graduate and post-graduate legal education. It is the only National Law University in the state of Kerala.


The Centre for Parliamentary Studies and Law Reforms (CPSLR) under the National University of Advanced Legal Studies is an endeavour of the University to make the legislation more effective for social transformation and to achieve social justice by equitable administration of law.

About the Seminar

The Center is conducting an International Seminar on “Liberty”. The idea of liberty for an individual can depend on a variety of factors and one’s background. It can stem from social issues like class and caste struggle and economic aspects like labour movements and freedom from crony capitalism. It can even branch out into environmentalism and gender studies.

Attaining liberty for an individual or a class of individuals is the center of various political, philosophical and theological doctrines as well.  With these sub-themes in mind,  make your voices heard at this seminar which will provide an equitable and unbiased representation of all opinions relating to liberty.

The conference will end with the release of a flagship Kochi Declaration on Liberty.
