- In its initiative to advance research and publication in contemporary areas of legal studies, School of Law, Bennett University is pleased to announce ‘Bennett Journal of Legal Studies(BJLS)’ Volume 4 proposed to be released in February 2023 on the Theme “Contemporary Legal Challenges to the Rule of Law in the 21st Century”.
- Rule of Law has been the touchstone of human civilization over the centuries for social interactions and transactions between human beings through the prisms of equality and justice. Within the discourse of rule of law, States have sought to harmonize distinct interest groups to retain political continuum and relevance.
- However, with the last century bringing unprecedented and permanent changes in human society, the State has per se struggled to retain their authority on obsequent and hostile constituencies. The 21st century has continued these changes in an exponential manner and the concept of Rule of Law is placed in a gordian knot dilemma.
- Artificial intelligence, gender fluidity, climate change are terms unfamiliar with previous generations but have become part of the lingua franca in contemporary times. States which fail to engage in emergent glocal phenomena are bound to face challenges within their respective legal systems which threaten existing norms based on Rule of Law.
Scholarly submissions are solicited from scholars, academicians, and practitioners to contribute critical articles within the framework of these challenges to the Rule of Law on the following suggested sub-themes:
- Criminalization and Decriminalization of Social Media Content
- Artificial Intelligence as the Inventor/Creator of Intellectual Property
