Last Week at CLPR: 15th-21st Oct 2017

October 23, 2017

The festive season made the last week at CLPR a short week. The Supreme Court was also closed for the whole week.




Times of India covered the press conference on the SC verdict in the Marital Rape case that was hosted at the Press Club, Bengaluru by CLPR and Child Rights Trust (CLPR represented Child Rights Trust in this case).




CADindia 2.0 was launched. The comprehensive content and powerful search engine from the v1.0 website has been redesigned and now supports an intuitive and improved user workflow that stimulates curiosity and encourages discovery.




Review of the events in the Supreme Court so far in this session and a roadmap of upcoming events.




The Centre for Law and Policy Research encourages and facilitates civic engagement with India’s Constitution through the CADIndia project and Supreme Court Observer. CADIndia promotes an understanding of the Indian Constitution by enabling easy and intelligent access to the Constituent Assembly Debates and the Indian Constitution at the centre of discussions on contemporary political and economic issues. The SCObserver website endeavors to make the workings of the Supreme Court accessible and understandable to the citizenry by translating the hearings and judgements of a few constitutionally relevant cases into everyday language.


The other main areas of interest for CLPR are Transgender Rights, Children’s Rights, Reproductive Rights, and Bail Reform. CLPR’s activities in these areas range from research to education to litigation. This weekly post recaps the activities across all projects and areas of focus.
