India’s judiciary is renowned for being assertive and innovative, as well as increasingly influential in the global legal community. Furthermore, as a postcolonial society, the world’s largest democracy, and formerly closed economy, India stands at the nexus of multiple global networks. This two day symposium will bring together faculty and graduate students from law schools and social sciences disciplines across the University of Chicago, as well as from universities across the country, to explore ongoing dialogues between India and other nations on issues like civil rights, jurisdiction, public interest law, commercial development, and religion-state interactions.
