Speaking on the occasion Prof B.B.Pandey  said the Rule of Law thinking is divided between the two polarities, namely : One, that believes in absolute goodness and inherent desirability of the ‘law’ and defines it “normatively” as the  reflection of the consensus of the majority of the people, and Second, that defines law “neutrally” as a set of “power resource” that is meant to serve the interests of those sections that retain the dominant position through the majoritarian backing.

Rule of Law Key principles 

Focusing on AV Dicey’s three key  ideas of  Rule of Law: namely  First : The supremacy of law over arbitrary power’ Second : The equality of all before the law, and government under the law’ Third : There is no higher law other than the rights of individuals determined by the courts.  Professor said that Rule of Law need to establish itself by reiterating the core credentials in terms of three characteristic features, namely: (a) Autonomy and Universality, (b) Dynamism and Mutability and (c) Reflections of the higher social aspirations of the society.

The six key churnings

The ‘Churns’ are an integral part of the externalities of the Rule of Law. They relate to the multiple forces at work in the society such as (a) Nature of the economy, (b) Increasing inegalitarianism and widening social and economic disparities, (c) Growing impact of science and technology, (d) Artificial Intelligence and Robotics (e) Rising trend of criticalist thinking and the law reforms (f) Majoritarian faith-oriented re-imagination of legal process and selective deployment of law. The aforesaid significant “churns”, either facilitate or impede the march of the Rule of Law in the contemporary Indian society.

Extolling on these churnings Prof. Panday said that there is a need to see how these churnings are affecting the rule of Law. The growing economic inequalities, giving extra premium to invasive technologies, growing populism of religious majoritarianism etc are playing havoc with the key tenants of Rule of Law which is the source of modern Constitutional Democracy. He urged the students of Law and the legal fraternity to be conscious of these churnings and try to up keep the morality of Rule of law intact.

Prof. K.Vidyullatha Reddy the Registrar NALSAR University of law  gave vote of thanks.
