Youth Parliament of J&K, Law Students' Forum, Youth for Human Rights International, New Delhi Organised Conference on Human Right on 10th of December

"True peace is not merely the absence of tension, it is the presence of justice" - Martin Luther King Jr.
Law Students’ Forum (An Independent Association of Law Students’) under the aegis of Youth Parliament of J&K in collaboration with Youth For Human Rights, New Delhi has organized the Human Rights Conference in order to enable law students across the state to come on a common platform and share their views, express their ideas and discuss issues of their respective concern so that it will help us in spreading awareness about Human Rights.

Law Students’ Forum has firm belief that law students owe the responsibility of molding public opinion and they can do so by joining hands in promoting Human Rights and eradicating the basic social issues such as corruption, gender discrimination, red tapism, environmental degradation, child labour, etc which our society is ridden of. Besides, that law students are the key elements of any society and it is the need of the hour to channelize them and utilize their efforts in upgrading the basic standards of the citizens of our state in particular and our nation in general.

Law Students’ Forum expresses the notion that law students are the threshold of any progressive society and their voice can change the attitude of millions of people, who appear not only indifferent but even oblivious in diverting their mature wisdom towards the eradication of evils which have destroyed the social fabric of our society and are least bothered to take care of the successive generation.

The Human Rights Conference has come out with a motive of promoting Human Rights and bridging the gap between various law institutions across the state so they sound a feeble call to rise from the deep sleep and remove the curtain of intellectual ignorance from their faces and should take the oath of dedication towards the desired goal.

This very Human Rights Conference projects the idea of susceptibility of the law students that a great responsibility lays upon their tender shoulders to built up the social edifice so as to harness the hidden treasure of law students’ talent for their welfare in special and for the development of their nation as a whole.

Law Students’ Forum wants to shed away the impression that they alone are not afoot to generate the awareness but we all irrespective of our educational liking and disliking should take the pledge for working towards the goal which the society has set for us….
