The Faculty of Law, Jamia Millia Islamia New Delhi, & Legal Desire Media and Publications had organized a one-day Seminar on ‘Socio Legal Aspects of Disability in India’ on November 1, 2017. The Seminar provided a platform to students from various law schools and members of allied disciplines to have a qualified discussion on various themes revolving around disability.
The intention was to not only explore the process of accessing justice through litigations and procedural justice practices but also explore matters concerning how law indirectly and often directly impacts the lives of people with disabilities in India.
The Seminar saw participation of more than 100 presentees.
Guest of Honour for the event was Mr. Mualidharan. He is the general secretary of the National Platform for the Rights of the Disabled (NPRD).
Chief Guest for the event was Sr. Advocate Mr. Santosh Kumar Rungta. He spearheaded the legal battle which culminated with the Supreme Court decision of 2013 which ordered three percent reservation to all differently abled persons in central and state government jobs.
