ABOUT THE EVENT-
The topic ‘Significance of Constitutional Values in the 21 st Century’ has so been chosen keeping in mind the various legislative changes that have taken place over the past year and the new Acts that have been brought into force by the Parliament. The Constitution of India is the highest authority of law in our country and through this lecture our esteemed speaker would shed a light on the values that it represents in a democratic nation like ours and how acknowledging their significance in today’s time is of utmost importance. Lordship’s take on the legislative changes, the Constitutional values as well as His perspective on the current socio-political situation in the country would be an enlightening opportunity for law students
and legal professionals alike.

On August 22, 2017 Justice Joseph gave a verdict against the controversial Triple Talaq. In his judgement he said:
"I find it extremely difficult to agree with the learned Chief Justice that the practice of triple talaq has to be considered integral to the religious denomination in question and that the same is part of their personal law...."
