Into Legal World is announcing its first National Debate Competition. Working with a cause of creating a change in perspectives, Into Legal World took is coming up with a topic which is widely misunderstood. ‘Gender Biasness’ ever existing phenomena in society. It still exists with a lot of misconceptions and misunderstandings. Gender Biasness doesn’t only mean biases against women, biases against any gender are Gender Biasness. We often ignore Transgenders when we talk about gender, the recent recognition from the Supreme Court has allotted them all the rights as gender. We aim a debate which deals with perspectives and opinions more than book knowledge.

IS INDIAN LAW GENDER BASED?

“Contrast Between Fundamental Rights and Personal Laws.”

“Does our Law Support Patriarchy?”
