Tuesday 24 August 2021

This event was part of the IILAH Festival of Conversations: Ideas and Performances.

This panel featured contributions from academics trained in the law in India, and currently teaching at Indian universities, who  reflected on the inheritances, futures and failures of a critical legal project for Indian legal education and scholarship. The panel touched on three questions in particular:
1) what might the humanities offer law?;
2) how to teach law from critical perspectives?;
3) is legal critique a political project?
4) What possibilities for acknowledging plurality [i.e., of laws] does tropical legal critique enable, and what might it limit?
