Centre for Criminal Justice Studies - RV University


The centre’s primary focus is to enhance awareness of contemporary issues within criminal law and the administration of criminal justice. It strives to stimulate meaningful discussions in the field of criminal law and its associated disciplines by providing a platform for relevant academic discourse through its blog. Additionally, the centre seeks to encourage dialogue on current criminal law topics through the organization of national-level competitions.  It aims to facilitate meaningful interactions between students and key figures within the criminal justice administration system, including legal professionals, NGOs, scholars, and jurists, by hosting lectures and workshops. The centre endeavours to initiate and sustain engaging conversations among students concerning various aspects of criminal law studies. This is achieved by involving them in frequent events such as film screenings, discussions,  reading groups, and more.
