The national university of advanced legal studies, kochi
The National University of Advanced Legal Studies, (NUALS) was established by Act 27 of 2005 of the Kerala State Legislature. Prof. (Dr.) Rose Varghese is the present Vice Chancellor of the University. Ever since its inception, a strong commitment to excellence in teaching and research has made the NUALS a path-setter for several other Universities. One of the core strengths of NUALS has been human resource training. NUALS offers five year integrated BA. LL. B (Hons.), One year LL.M. programme and Ph.D. Being at the helm of legal education for over a decade, NUALS has ventured in advanced legal research and training by offering a plethora of Post Graduate Diploma courses. NUALS is located in Cochin, the industrial hub of Kerala and one of the most industrially significant locations in South India, making it ideal to act as a liaison between the scientific and research communities, prominent industries as well as educational institutions in developing a nationally significant law database and platform for action. NUALS has undertaken several initiatives to bring legal radiance to the masses like conducting legal awareness classes, surveys, legal aid camps with active participation from the State Legal Services Authority (KELSA). Also, the University has established many Centres of study and research to make the study of law relevant to social needs and encourage focused research.
ABOUT THE ORGANIZERS
CENTRE FOR HUMAN RIGHTS (CHR)
Human Rights is one of the most debated and ironically enough, largely neglected aspects that falls under the purview of law. The establishment of the Centre for Human Rights at NUALS was done with the goal to stimulate discussions on the concept of human rights and how the law can be used in the service of human rights. The Centre aspires to organize its efforts to develop a culture of human rights through its various legal initiatives. The Centre works to bridge the knowledge in legal, social and cultural realms that impede the achievement of greater human rights compliance.
CENTRE FOR HEALTH LAW AND POLICY (CHLP)
The Centre for Health Law and Policy is an interdisciplinary centre and it aims to encourage, promote and support innovative scholarship including teaching, research, consultancy and advocacy in areas of health care law. The activities of the Centre includes fostering collaborative links across institutions and fields related to health law, alliance with professional associations and bodies engaged in promotion of health of people, undertake research projects on various issues coming under health law and policy, organize training programme for targeted groups, sponsoring conferences, seminars, workshops, lectures and other similar activities, arranging visits of distinguished scholars from India and abroad.
CENTRE FOR INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS (CIPR)
Realizing the importance of IPR, the Centre for Intellectual Property Rights (CIPR) was established to promote Intellectual Property awareness in the society, and to encourage research in the emerging arena of Intellectual property. The twin primary goals of the Centre are to enhance research and expertise pro-actively in novel and emerging fields of intellectual property law, as well as to become a source of information and expertise on the subject to stakeholders such as inventors, research institutions, universities, industries as well as intellectual property practitioners, policy-makers and regulators.
