Date: 18th - 19th September, 2015
Venue: O.P. Jindal Global University, Sonepat, Haryana

The conference is being organized to give a platform for libertarian thought and to introduce a fresh perspective focused on the rule of law and individual liberty. The conference also intends to develop a libertarian critique of popular judicial discourse. There will be five panels and fifteen panelists including Prof. Shruti Rajagopalan, Prof. James Huffman and Prof. Saikrishna Prakash. Two slots are reserved for student-panelists to be selected through a competition. The conference is open to Indian and foreign legal academics and members of the Indian Bar and Bench.

One of the events for this International Conference is a Research Paper Competition that is open to all law students throughout the law schools in India.
