"Freedom of Speech & Expression in today's India"
AmicusX is an online platform that reflects the evolving dynamics of legal education. This website is the result of the enthusiasm of a group of law students, lawyers, and laymen, who have come together to decode and cognize the multi-faceted understanding of the law. The website offers its visitors an opportunity to read about different legal aspects through its blogs, but the offering does not end there. AmicusX aims to fill in the gap between the learnings from law school and the requirements of the legal practice. AmicusX connects to law students through internships, competitions, and other different types of engagements.
About the Webinar
Amidst all negativities of the raging global pandemic, it has also provided ample opportunities to enthusiasts to learn and discuss. At a time like this, when most of us are trying to “work from home”, three charismatic lawyers have managed to take some time to speak at our webinar on “Freedom of Speech and Expression in today’s India”. Our erudite panel of speakers will enrich the webinar with their captivating insights into the topic, along with a Q/A session at the end of the webinar.
This is the first webinar organized by AmicusX.
