University College of Law, Osmania University is pleased to announce a National Seminar on the Criminal Justice System in India - Recent Trends.

Date: 8th - 9th March, 2016
Venue: University College of Law Osmania University, Hyderabad

About the Seminar:
Crimes are universal phenomena, which have the capacity of destabilizing the equilibrium of the society. Criminal wrongs cause irreparable damage to an individual and to the society at large. As the society is developing, criminal acts are also emerging with new forms. Apart from the traditional crimes, new types of criminal conducts have been experienced by the victims. There is a steep rise of incidents of crimes against women such as cyber crimes, sexual harassment at work place, acid attacks and rapes in recent years and at the same time crimes against women are also increasing.

India is known for its justice since times immemorial. Judiciary is independent and the penal philosophy in India has accepted the concept of prevention of crime and rehabilitation of criminals, which have been reiterated by many judgments of the Supreme Court. It is the State which undertakes the responsibility to prosecute and punish the offenders and by treating the victims as mere witness. Keeping in view the fundamental and human rights of the citizens, the Indian criminal laws were amended in 2013 and 2015. In view of the recent amendments to criminal laws, the University College of Law, Osmania University is conducting a two day National Seminar, to discuss the importance and impact of the amendments made to the criminal laws by eminent judges, advocates, law teachers, law experts, and NGOs.
