About the University
The National Law University and Judicial Academy, Assam (NLUJAA) have been established by the Government of Assam by way of enactment of the National Law School and Judicial Academy, Assam Act, 2009 (Assam Act No. XXV of 2009). The University is dedicated to imparting comprehensive legal education and training at all levels to achieve excellence in legal education and to promote cultural, legal and ethical values to foster rule of law and the objectives enshrined in the Constitution of India.
The university campus has state-of-the-art infrastructure equipped with all modern sophisticated facilities along with a world-class library, equipped with a collection of more than twelve thousand titles in the field of Law, Social Sciences and Humanities. The University has established several Research Centres to promote advanced legal studies and research. The Centres have been set up by the University with the intent to address the socio-legal issues and challenges with a specific thrust on the North-East region.
The Centre for Disability Studies & Health Laws (CDSHL), National Law University Assam is the one such platform which aims at bringing the people from academia, research, government departments, non-governmental organizations, along with the other stakeholders.
The Centre for Disability Studies & Health Laws (CDSHL), is only of its kind functioning in the North-East Region. This centre will serve as the role model for taking dialogue into reality. While bridging this gap, the centre will try to set a standard for the right to ‘act’ in terms of the modern-day disability jurisprudence. The idea is also highlighted under the provisions of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD) and further tried to be archived by resenting Disability Laws of the country.
