The National Law Institute University, Bhopal (NLIU), was established by the Rashtriya Vidhi Sansthan Vishwavidyalaya Adhiniyam, by Act No. 41 of 1997, enacted by the Madhya Pradesh State Legislature. NLIU is recognized by the University Grants Commission and the Bar Council of India. National Law Institute University’s important rock pillar- Centre for Labour Laws (CLL) was established in 2019. Although born in one of the most uncertain times mankind has ever seen; i.e., Covid-19 Pandemic, CLL is destined to grow as a bearer of light and empathy. The Centre is one of its kind and serves as an embodiment of labour rights for the brick bearers of the nation- our labourers & workmen. One of the aims of the Centre is to provide a platform for research on policy, institutional, legal and regulatory issues and act as a platform for exchanging ideas amongst Govt. Authorities, Lawyers, Policymakers, Regulators and Academia.
Labour and Employment law is a niche area, and has a plethora of opportunities and potential in terms of research. CLL strives to provide a forum for exchange of ideas in this field. The Labour and Employment Law Blog has been established to stimulate academic research and discussion to help develop accessible understanding of contemporary labour and employment law issues.
