National Discussion on Changes in Online Contract by CCCL: Submit by 18 Oct

About the Centre for Corporate and Competition Law

Established in 2018, the Centre for Corporate and Competition Law (CCCL) is a student-run centre aiming to provide a platform for students of the institute to explore and learn more about the nuances of Corporate and Competition Law, and to prepare them for the corporate world. To advance our agenda, CCCL has been successful in conducting multiple landmark events in the history of our institute, which has carved a niche corner for our centre within the legal fraternity. Amongst others, CCCL conducted our flagship event, the first-ever National Corporate Restructuring Competition in India in 2019. We have also spread our roots into banking law by conducting a three-day value-added course on Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code. Over the past two years, we have invited eminent personalities like Mr. Dhanendra Kumar, first Chairperson of the CCI and Dr. K. D. Singh, Joint Secretary for Law at CCI conduct webinars on relevant topics.

This National Conference seeks:
·       To provide an interactive forum to engage in the discourse on emerging trends in corporate and competition laws in India;
·       To facilitate a better understanding of policy and legal problems that are to be identified during the discussions;

·       To create a network among the academicians, researchers, students and industry (particularly those working in the area of commercial law) so as to develop an environment for the exchange of ideas between academia and industry.
·       To explore the possibility of undertaking collaborative research including all the participants.
