CLPR conducted the second edition of India's only national quiz on Indian constitution, history and politics in 2017. A preliminary round was held in each of the 4 regions (East, North, South and West) and the winners and runners-up from each round met in the national final. 450 students participated and the quiz drew an audience of about 2000.
This single credit graduate level course of 7 sessions was conducted from 30th August 2017 to 20th September 2017. The course was taught by Jayna Kothari, Executive Director of Centre for Law and Policy Research.
Litigation and advocacy for Gender and Sexuality related rights are one of CLPR’s strengths. We have worked extensively for policy reform around child rights, domestic violence, sexual harassment at the workplace, sexual violence and reform of fast track courts. We have been at the forefront in the fight for recognition of transgender rights in India through our litigation in the High Courts and the Supreme Court.
Every year CLPR tracks at least 20 cases heard in the Supreme Court that impact the daily life of Indian citizens or have far-reaching consequences in the governance of the country. Detailed case descriptions, reports of the hearings and analysis of judgements can be found on http://scobserver.clpr.org.in.
CLPR has worked with a number of organisations in conducting strategic impact litigation on public health issues and tobacco regulation in the country. We have also made policy recommendations in the field of tobacco control and public health for the implementation of the Framework Convention on Tobacco Control.
