A little over two years ago, we wanted to create a change in society and advance legal resources to the community. With that thought in mind, we kickstarted KnowLaw with a view to giving something back to the community using the knowledge, skills, and experiences gathered over the course of life so far. The initiative that we had built with only a handful of people, is now an initiative of many. KnowLaw has been established with the objective of promoting academic research and fostering debate on contemporary legal issues. We will forever be grateful and proud of what we have created! ________________________________________________ Get in touch at PB.Rishi@Outlook.com

A second-year student at O.P Jindal Global University. In my time with KnowLaw, I have seen a dramatic change in my perception of Indian society but also a newfound appreciation for the law of the land. I always thought of law as stagnant and uncreative but my time doing research and writing for KnowLaw has broadened my horizons significantly. I now see Law as a dynamic and innovative subject, one that pushes human development into new and uncharted frontiers. Working with KnowLaw has also helped me learn more about my interests and invest significant hours into learning more about the function of society in general so that I can not only emerge a better writer and organizer but also a more humanitarian and humble person. ________________________________________________ Get in touch at 20jgls-NPanchu@jgu.edu.in
