The Centre for Criminal Justice Administration, RMLNLU was established in 2019 under the guidance of Chairperson Dr. Kumar Askand Pandey, to dichotomously promote students’ and researchers’ interest and influence in the academic discipline and practical application of criminal law.
Despite being a young establishment, the Centre has already developed strong ties with the Uttar Pradesh Police Department, and there has been consistent progress in symbiotic projects that conjointly benefit the domain of criminal law. The Centre has also been involved in national training programs for Public Prosecutors.
The Centre also manages a blog that accepts academically-oriented submissions, both in the sole discipline of criminal law or intertwined with other socio-legal disciplines, on a rolling basis from members of the legal fraternity. In addition, open-to-all interactive webinars that promote dynamic debate and discussion are frequently hosted with eminent guest speakers.
The Centre’s ultimate object is the promotion of the discipline of criminal law to legal minds, its application in scenarios that assist law enforcement agencies, and to evocatively highlight and address the loopholes and fallacies that evade the general populace of their right of access to justice.
