About the Conference

The year 2022 witnessed several discussions in the public domain on critical areas of both substantive and procedural aspects of criminal law. Many of these discussions concern key research areas for academicians and lawyers alike. The Hon’ble Supreme Court of India (SCI) kept the archaic sedition law under s.124 A, IPC, in abeyance, pending its decision on the constitutionality of the provision. On the other hand, it was observed that cases were still being registered under s. 66A, IT Act, which was struck down as unconstitutional by the SCI.

There were polarized debates after the release of convicted prisoners in a rape case, which again pointed our attention towards state-level policies for premature release. We also witnessed how a drug case involving a celebrity’s son brought to the fore important issues surrounding the discretion of agencies involved in the apprehension of suspects. There were also significant debates on PMLA, bail, rights of prisoners, criminalization of politics, etc. Criminal law, therefore, occupied an important space in public discourse. Criminal law discourse has to promote a deeper understanding of several issues surrounding crime prevention, prosecution and punishment.
