The Faculty of Law was a ‘Knowledge Partner’ to an online seminar on “Plea Bargaining and Criminal Jurisprudence” organised by the All India Lawyers’ Forum. The distinguished keynote speakers were KTS Tulsi (Senior Advocate and Member, Rajya Sabha) and Jayant Sud (Senior Advocate and Additional Solicitor General of India). Ajay Thomas (Director, Faculty of Law) gave the Opening Address and also welcomed the gathering.
Given its very recent entry into Indian criminal law jurisprudence, the concept of Plea Bargaining is of great interest to those having an interest in criminal law. This, perhaps, explains the large number of students and practising lawyers who attended this webinar which was also live streamed on Facebook (5,400 views).
