About the Centre for Criminal Justice Administration
The Centre for Criminal Justice Administration [CCJA], Dr Ram Manohar Lohiya National Law University, Lucknow, was established in the year 2008-2009 to dichotomously promote students’ and researchers’ interest and influence in the academic discipline and practical application of criminal law.
The CCJA is credited with many firsts in RMLNLU. Right from its inception, the CCJA collaborated with Bureau of Police Research and Development, Ministry of Home Affairs, Government of India to conduct a series of training and sensitisation programmes for prison officials from across the country. CCJA also organised several national seminars on issues of contemporary relevance such as cybercrimes, terrorism etc.
In the year 2010, the CCJA celebrated the 150th Anniversary of Indian Penal Code, 1860 by organising the first-ever International Seminar at RMLNLU. In the year 2010 itself, CCJA undertook a major research project to study the prosecution system in Uttar Pradesh and its report submitted in 2012 made policy recommendations for overhauling the prosecution apparatus. This research project was sponsored by the Department of Higher Education, Government of Uttar Pradesh. In collaboration with the Directorate of Prosecution, Uttar Pradesh, a series of training and capacity building programmes were started by CCJA in 2011-2012. The CCJA is also working on a UNICEF-sponsored mega-project since the year 2016 for strengthening Child Protection System in Uttar Pradesh.
The student members, including the Editorial Boards, at CCJA are also engaged in carrying out research and consultancy projects assigned by the Directorate of Prosecution, Uttar Pradesh in the year 2019-2020. Further, under the aegis of National Commission for Protection of Child Rights, Government of India, in the year 2011, CCJA had organised a regional consultation of the states of North India for making recommendations and suggestions on the draft Bill that was later enacted into the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act, 2012.
