As part of the Lecture Series on Constitutionalism, we will be hosting Justice (Retd.) Ruma Pal for a talk on September 8, 2016 (Thursday). The discussion will be centered on Article 44 of the Constitution which contemplates the creation of a Uniform Civil Code. The talk is scheduled during the 11:30 AM - 1 PM slot at the SAARCLAW Centre.
Justice Pal had started legal practice at the Calcutta High Court and subsequently joined the bench. She served on the Supreme Court between 1999-2006 and is widely considered to be among the best justices in the post-independence era. Justice Pal has recently revised M.P. Jain's commentary on the Indian Constitution and frequently contributes to journalistic and academic publications.
