ABOUT THE LECTURE

Currently, due to an unprecedented health hazard, a nationwide lockdown implemented by Central and State Governments. Some of us, due to lack of preparation, are left with nothing but an internet connection. This online-study platform is another attempt by us to fulfill the zeal of learning, while we are still at safe at home.
After the immense success and appreciation of the many lecture-series, LCD MCS is organizing one another Event in the presence of an erudite scholar of Constitutional law.  In the words of Dr. Justice T. Kochu Thommen, “Affirmative action is not merely compensatory justice, which it is, but is also distributive justice seeking to ensure that community resources are more equitably and justly shared among all classes of citizens.”  The main focus through this lecture is to understand the affirmative action and its importance in justice system in two great jurisdictions i.e. India and the U.S.
