LEX MACULA is a registered NGO under the Societies Registration Act, 1860. We are a youth organisation specializing in organizing moot courts, debates, seminars and other legal competitions for a much better learning experience than what is offered to the law students.
The topic for discussion is ‘Significance of Constitutional Values in the 21st Century’. As we come toward the end of 2020, India has faced many constitutional conundrums over the last few years, some exasperated by the pandemic and some otherwise, in this current climate it becomes increasingly important to recognise our constitutional values laid down by the Constitutional Assembly and their importance in this century.
