The Jurist International Article Writing Competition 2020
The Jurist is one of the leading think-tanks and research-resource centre for formulating and promoting fundamental reforms in socio, political, legal spheres and in critical areas of state policy. It is established to provide free access to legal discourse and encourage legal minds to explore the contours of law.
As The Jurist continues to grow, open source remains the foundation of our products and communities. In the spirit of open source, there are three key elements to growing our community and making it accessible to everyone: knowledge sharing, kindness, and mentorship. The strength of an organisation is not based on just the quality of the code, but the community and ecosystem that are built around it. With a vision to promote diversified opinions concerning law and society and to help the legal fraternity to understand the dynamics of law from multiple perspectives, The Jurist is going to organize the International Article Writing Competition, 2020 for the Global Student Community.
