NLS Law and Technology Legislative Analysis Competition 2014-15

[The following announcement is posted on behalf of the Law and Technology Society of the National Law School of India University, Bangalore]

The Law and Technology Society is proud to present the 3rd edition of ‘NLS Law and Technology Legislative Analysis Competition, 2014-15’. This National level competition aims to continue the effort to involve students in research and analysis on pending bills that blur the interface between law and technology. Considering the large number of entries received in our last two editions from law institutions across the country, we hope to expand our outreach even further this year.

The two bills selected for consideration in this edition are:

a) Draft Medical Termination of Pregnancy (Amendment) Bill, 2014

b) 2014 Amendment to Karnataka Prevention of Dangerous Activities of Bootleggers, Drug Offenders, Gamblers, Goondas, Immoral Traffic Offenders and Slum Gamblers Act, 1985 (“The Karnataka Goondas Act”), with a special focus on the extension of the scope of legislations to “copyright violation”, “video or audio pirates” and “digital offenders”.

The deadline for the submission of the paper is 5:00 PM on February 25th, 2015. Those students whose entries are adjudged as best by our panel of judges, would be offered an opportunity to intern with PRS Legislative Research Organization (http://www.prsindia.org/aboutus/objectives/) and Centre for Internet and Society (http://cis-india.org/). The best submission would also be considered for publication in the Indian Journal of Law and Technology. Furthermore, prize money worth Rs. 5000/- for the best submission on each bill would be awarded.
