UPES’ National Book Review Competition [IGNITE 2016, Dehradun]: Register by Feb 15

Literary and Debating Society (LDS), College of Legal Studies, UPES is pleased to introduce the National Book Review event as a part of IGNITE 2016.


This event will test your adjudicating prowess in reviewing a book.

Now, coming to the books that we expect you to review; any book with a legal aspect will do.

We expect you to choose a book and may ask you to give us the justification which proves the legal aspect of that particular book, in case the title is not making the legal aspect of that particular book clear.

Also, novels with a legal plot will be considered. For example, novels like ‘How to kill a mockingbird’ or John Grisham’ novels will also be considered.
