New Delhi: The Uniform Civil Code (UCC) is still being discussed at a nascent level within the judiciary and Law Commission of India, but academic institutions have gone a step ahead and launched competitions to draft the perfect code.
National Law School of India University, one of the most prestigious law schools of the country, along with Ramaiah College of Law, Bengaluru, is organizing a two-day national seminar where students will “prepare a draft on Uniform Civil Code, which should be possible to adopt under Art 44 of the Constitution of India.”
Article 44 of the Constitution says the state shall “endeavour to secure for the citizens a uniform civil code”.
Named the “Constitutional Quest to Uniform Civil Code: Mirage or Compulsion”, the seminar scheduled March 17-18, allows students to submit papers on topics ranging from UCC, Constitution of India and Constitutionalism, The Jurisprudence on Uniform Civil Code to Common civil code/law v/s Uniform civil code.
