About the Conference

Law & Forensic justice is a wide concept that paves the way for easy as well as quick access to justice to people seeking it and also helps in the prevention of crime. With this conference a step closer is being taken towards familiarizing ourselves with what law is and with the continuously evolving world, it will also be highlighting how offenses are altering themselves and modifying their forms along with the identification of new offenses by our society.

Forensic scientists examine the associations among people, places, things, and events involved in crimes. Forensics plays a pivotal role in establishing rule of law and in recent times, the importance of forensic justice has increased. In the year 2003, ‘The Malimath Committee’s Report’ on ‘Reforms of Criminal Justice System’ had mentioned the low level of application of forensic science in criminal investigations in the country. It has not taken off due to a host of reasons. But it is prudent to use forensic evidence to help decide cases justly and conclusively.
