About Centre for South Asian Legal Studies
The study of law cannot be undertaken in an isolated room. The issues and problems with which today’s societies are conflicting have to be taken into consideration when we step into the realm of law. The Centre for South Asian Legal Studies is therefore committed to examine and analyse these issues of utmost relevance while having a comparative approach with the jurisdictions of South Asian Region. The problems of South Asia are common in many disciplines and also in many facets of social, legal and political life. Therefore, any attempt to understand the real issues of this region would be fruitless and irrelevant if a holistic attempt is not made. The Centre is, hence, focused to this approach of legal methodology.
