The field of law and economics of developing countries is still in its youth and is growing rapidly and is a fertile ground for exciting new findings, both theoretical and empirical.  Further progress is likely to come from the studies of the elements of the legal system other than the substantive law and should move beyond specific analyses of the impact of particular success and failure stories towards more general analyses of the determinants and outcomes of successful legal institutions.


The objective is to cultivate the science of law, to promote advanced studies and research in law so as to meet the social, economic and other needs of the Indian people, to promote systematization of law, to encourage and conduct investigations in legal and allied fields, to improve legal education, to impart instructions in law, and to publish studies, books,  periodicals, etc.


We all are aware of the term “Sexual Harassment” which is a bullying or coercion of a sexual nature, or the unwelcome or inappropriate promise of rewards in exchange for sexual favors. In most modern legal contexts, sexual harassment is illegal. As defined by the  United States’ Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), “It is unlawful to harass  a person (an applicant or employee) because of that person’s sex.” Harassment can include  “sexual harassment” or unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical harassment of a sexual nature. The major challenge was to educate the people about sexual harassment as the legal definition of sexual harassment varies by jurisdiction.
