Website Centre for Justice, Law and Society (CJLS), Jindal Global Law School


The Centre for Justice, Law, and Society (CJLS) is a multidisciplinary research centre at the Law School that critically engages with contemporary issues at the intersection of law, justice, society and marginalization in South Asia. CJLS is a collaborative endeavour of a group of scholars, activists and students who are engaged in high quality empirical and theoretical research. CJLS foregrounds the question of justice, especially intersectional justice, in law and society studies, to respond to the changing relationship between law and society in South Asia today. CJLS inaugurates a distinct terrain of research that is not mimetic of Western mainstream paradigms of law and society studies or those studies that do not focus on justice as a central theme.
