About the seminar:

The history of India’s culture and civilization is incomplete without an understanding of the principles of
law and jurisprudence, including the course of their evolution and their various facets. In ancient India, the scope of the law was all-embracing, covering various aspects of social and religious life. Ancient Indian society was not static but dynamic and the changing requirements of society had to be accommodated by suitably modifying the rules and regulations pertaining to administration, taxation and economy, maintenance of law and order, and sustenance of the societal norms and the religious injunctions, as also progressively evolving an appropriate mechanism for enforcing these regulations, as per the emerging and constantly changing needs of the society. To meet these objectives, a need was felt to conceptualize and create a treatise on jurisprudence, which was realized progressively by the formulation of a large body of legal literature based on the societal requirement.
