    Founded on the vision of Dr Karsanbhai K Patel the Institute of Law, Nirma University (ILNU), established in 2007, focuses on bringing about a paradigm shift in the delivery of legal education in the country. It aims to add newer dimensions to legal education that would incorporate international standards and provide an environment for innovation and dynamic scholarship. Embodying the principles of justice education, excellence, and professionalism, ILNU imparts quality legal education that has produced a new generation of lawyers, leaders, and policymakers over the years.

    The Institute of Law, Nirma University is organizing an International Conference on 'Right to Equality: Contemporary Challenges' on March 15 and 16, 2024 in a hybrid mode. The right to Equality is one of the basic interests of the social human recognizing the equal dignity and liberty of all. The basic right of humans to equal treatment has arisen out of centuries of continued existence in social categories and hierarchies that have ensured the dominion of the dominant over the other. Hence, modern constitutions, by recognizing the right to equality, have been pursuing a transformative goal of achieving greater dignity for all. The formal promise and enforcement of equality through constitutional provisions might not always be enough. This conference is aimed to initiate new discourses and continue the existing conversations on the furtherance of the right to equality, especially in light of the contemporary developments across jurisdictions.


    The conference is open to Academicians, Practitioners law students, and students of social sciences. The conference will be held in a hybrid mode. The participants may participate either in the online or offline mode. The university shall provide accommodation, on request for which separate payment has to be made.
