About The Seminar:
Judicial activism is not an easy concept to define. It means different things to different persons. Critics denounce judicial decisions as activist when they do not agree with them. Activism, like beauty, is often in the eye of beholder. Judicial policy making can either be an activity in support of legislative and executive policy choices or in opposition to them. But the latter one is usually referred to as judicial activism.

The following trends like expansion of rights of hearing in the administrative process, excessive delegation without limitation, expansion of judicial review over administration, passing of orders which are unworkable were the cause of judicial activism. However, with change in course of time this tool has been widely misused.

Therefore, keeping in view the recent examples of disturbing trends of Judicial Activism in state of Arunachal Pradesh and Uttrakhand, quash of a traditional collegiums system and the formation of Lodha Committee to look upon the matters of BCCI, the main object of the seminar is "to endow with a holistic approach of judicial activism and to provide an insight into the impact of judicial encroachment upon the executive actions".
