About the Conference

As part of the Suthanthira Thirunaal Amudha Peruvizha (STAP) program to commemorate the 75 years of India’s Independence, The Legal Centre for History of South India (LCHSI), Tamil Nadu National Law University, is organising a one-day National Conference on “Tracing the Idea of Justice from the pre-Independence period to the 75th year of India’s Independence” on 20th August 2022.

The concept of justice has been debated upon for millennia. It has been one of the most exciting and controversial ideas. It has been debated on at least three fronts. In the first place, in terms of what constitutes justice.

As a second point, the concept of justice has been affected by normative evaluations; accordingly, various explanations of justice have been predisposed to the normative impetuses of the commentators.

Third, the topic of what constitutes justice has been at the centre of the debate over good laws. An analytical breadth has been reached on the question of what are excellent laws when justice at the practical level is always given according to the law.

Every society’s definition of justice has evolved through time. In India,societies evolved an understanding of justice throughout the past from the evolution of the conception of justice as unequal castes, genders and communitiesin pre-modern timesto ideas of justice based on English Legal Principles in modern times; and justice as expanding capacities in post-modern times.

Political ideologies, religious beliefs, cultural intolerance, poverty and hunger, gender discrimination, abuses of human rights, and inequality, among other social handicaps, have prevented common people’s accessto justice even since independence.


The theme is “Tracing the Idea of Justice from the Pre-Independence period to the 75th year of India’s Independence”. Participants are free to write on any topic directly connected to the central theme and objectives of the Conference.


This conference is open to Academicians, Legal Professionals, Research Scholars, PG & UG students of law and any other related social science disciplines.
