About the Seminar


The society is a group of persons living together in a region or place, united by some common bond is known as society. Legal system reflects all the energy of life, which is regulated by rules for the administration or Justice. Law has the complex vitality, based on social movement and adaptation for leading a meaningful life. Law and society has very close nexus with its different actors and institution. Law is created through social development to maintain balance. Thus the law plays a vital role in the process of social action. Law regulates all organs of state and social institutions. The study of law and other specialization in the social sciences are closely thus interwoven. Society and law represents multi-dimensional and interdisciplinary issues. It requires understanding and intercourse on both sociological and non-sociological literature. Legal studies require contribution from various disciplines with expertise knowledge dissemination institutionally. Much work is done to maintain the democratic vigor, yet much remained undone. The 21st century has witnessed high economic growth. There are unprecedented changes in the development of science and technology. Law needs to be changed to keep space with the time. In order to maintain societal peace, we need to create a harmonic relationship between Law and Society. ISDR feel there is high need to congregate seminarian from different discipline on a single floor, So that stakeholder and intellectuals may find a solution to create an egalitarian society of high order. Further, it is often observed that, lack of legal awareness caused serious misuse of law. Therefore the seminar may be a great use to fill the void of the social order.
