Criminal Law Get Together is a virtual discussion forum organized by Criminal Law Research & Review (CrLRR) and hosted by its Founder, Ashwani, to discuss and deliberate upon contemporary & consequential questions, legal developments and scholarships relating to criminal law and allied fields.
Format and Rules of Discussion
- Every session has at least one primary reading.
- There are two ways to participate in a session, as a discussant and as an attendee.
- Discussants are expected to have read the primary reading for the session and are given 10-12 minutes to provide a short comment on the said reading.
- Attendees are also encouraged to participate but are not mandated to.
- Once all discussants (in a given session, there should not be more than 3 discussants other than the host) have made their points, the floor is opened for the attendees to comment or raise a question.
- A session usually lasts for 60 to 75 minutes.
- In the first two sessions, we covered sedition law and its misuse.
- In the third session, we discussed Preeti Dash‘s paper ‘Rape adjudication in India in the aftermath of Criminal Law Amendment Act, 2013: findings from trial courts of Delhi‘ published in Indian Law Review, Vol 4, Issue 2.
