The Judiciary and the legal framework are an important part of any developing country like India for providing justice, equality and prosperity to all its citizens. Its effective and time bound administration can not only ensure that the law of the land is upheld but that every citizen is protected by having full access to all their fundamental rights as defined by the Indian Constitution. This attains more significance in a large and diversified country like India where more than a billion strong population is widely distributed in terms of geography, economic classes, religion, education, gender, cultural and social backgrounds, work environment etc.
However, despite the efforts over the last few decades there are several sets of issues and bottle-necks that need to be addressed in order to improve the State Of The Law as it stands in the country today. The excessive delay in the delivery of justice, the high costs of litigation, the dearth of qualified lawyers and absence/vacancy of judges in courts at all levels, the lack of easy access for the common man to the judicial system, are but a few of the issues that need to be looked at and debated so that the required reforms and policy changes can be recommended and then implemented.
Given this situation of the The State Of Law in the country, Difficult Dialogues 2020 will focus on some of these key problems, and more importantly on what needs to be done to improve the Indian legal system so that it can deliver equitable and timely justice, and protect all its citizens in an effective and seamless way.
Notable academics and experts identified by the partners would join hands with eminent lawyers and members of the judiciary, civil society, media, activists, people working at the community level [in law, education, health, labour,] and representatives from government and non-governmental organisations to grapple with these crucial issues during this conference.
