(MENAFN- KNN India) New Delhi, Jul 10 (KNN) In a significant step towards modernising India's criminal justice system, the University Grants Commission (UGC) and National Law University Delhi (NLU Delhi) recently hosted a high-profile colloquium on "New Criminal Laws: A Vision for Justice and Rule of Law."

This colloquium represents a significant step in India's ongoing efforts to modernise its legal system, promising a new era of justice that balances traditional values with contemporary needs.

A highlight of the colloquium was the presentation by G.S. Bajpai, who served as the Convenor of the Committee responsible for drafting the three new criminal laws. Bajpai elucidated the key features of these legislations and their potential impact on the administration of justice for Indian citizens.

The event's core comprised three panel discussions focusing on the Bharatiya Nyaya Sanhita, Bharatiya Nagarik Suraksha Sanhita, and the Bharatiya Sakshya Adhiniyam. These sessions provided a platform for in-depth analysis of the new laws and their implications for the future of criminal justice in India.

Panelists engaged in thought-provoking discussions on the future trajectory of criminal justice and the rule of law in India. Their deliberations highlighted critical pathways for the development of legal frameworks aimed at ensuring justice and upholding the rule of law in the world's largest democracy.

The colloquium's success, evidenced by the diverse and substantial attendance of practitioners, academicians, and students, underscores the widespread interest and importance of these legal reforms.

The event, which drew over 400 attendees from various legal and academic backgrounds, marked a crucial milestone in the ongoing reform of India's criminal legislation.

The inaugural session featured an illustrious panel of legal experts, including Deepak Kumar Srivastava, Vice Chairperson of UGC, G.S. Bajpai, Vice Chancellor of NLU Delhi, D. Surya Prakasa Rao, Vice Chancellor of DSNLU, Visakhapatnam, and Chaya Sharma, Special Commissioner (Training) of Delhi Police.

As India moves forward with implementing these new criminal laws, the insights gained from this event are likely to play a crucial role in shaping the nation's approach to justice and civil liberties in the years to come.
