About the Competition
Freedom of speech is our fundamental right under the constitution and hence we have the liberty to express our opinions freely. By its very nature, the democratic process spurs citizens to form opinions on a number of issues. Diversity of opinions, thoughts and expressions among the citizens is vital for a healthy democracy.
With the same motive in mind, School of Business and Law has organized an online Opinion Writing Competition for all the undergraduate law students on the occasion of Constitution Day. Our aim is to generate a thought process which in turn will create a reasoned opinion on the topic.
