The rule of law requires that people should be governed by standard practices, rather than by the arbitrary decisions of rulers. These standards should be general and abstract, known and precise, and apply equally to all individuals. Nayashastram aims to nurture the legal fraternity with the ability to comprehend those acceptable rules and envision the possible changes which ought to be made in these rules as per the dynamic environment around us.
Nyayashastram is a student-run website/blog with the aid and advice from eminent Lawyers and Academicians across the nation. The blog is aimed to foster legal research by providing a platform to encourage the original and unpublished work of authors.
