The winners of the quiz were felicitated during the Valediction Ceremony by Honorable Justice Fakhruddin, Former Chief Justice Chhattisgarh State, Honorable Justice B.A. Khan Former Chief Justice J&K High Court , Mr. Rahul Dev- Media Personality and Dr. Ashok K Chauhan- Founder President, Amity Group.

Mr. Hitesh Bhatt from Amity Law School bagged special prize comprising of Rs. 25, 000 and a medal.

Welcoming the august gathering, Maj Gen Nilendra Kumar, Director, Amity Law School & Dean Faculty of Law said that the constitution of the country forms the bed rock of nation building process and has a pivotal role to play in regulation of the main organs of the country namely Legislation, Executive and Judiciary. Therefore, it is imperative for the ones associated with judicial system to be well versed with the constitutional law and the quiz was organized to serve the purpose of encouraging the understanding of the Constitution of India among the budding lawyers.

Applauding the novel way of making students practically know about the Constitution,Honorable Justice B.A. Khan -Former Chief Justice J&K High Court stated that the Quiz has comprehensively covered each and every aspect of the Constitutional Law, testing the in-depth knowledge of the budding lawyers. Justice Khan remarked that the present generation of lawyers has a great responsibility to rescue the system from the shortcomings which are affecting the smooth functioning of the system. Quoting the Chief Justice of India, Honorable Justice B.A. Khan that the present day judiciary is facing credibility crisis; its image and reputation is going down because it has not come up to the expectations of the people concerned in terms of delivery of justice. The High Court has over 45 lakh cases pending and Supreme Court has over 75, 000 cases pending. He called upon the budding lawyers to be proud of choosing such a noble profession since Judiciary, till date, is the only organ of the state which still enjoys public confidence and Judges are dedicated to the dispensation of justice. Hon’ble Justice suggested that Indian Parliament, like other countries, should also practice “Pre-Legislative Debate” before drafting a final law; it should throw the draft law in the public domain for debate and discussion, take the opinion of the public about the proposed law and then, give it a final shape.

Chief Guest Honorable Justice Fakhruddin, Former Chief Justice Chhattisgarh Statemotivated the students to serve the legal profession with honesty and dedication and always uphold the values of the Constitution.

Congratulating the students for displaying exemplary knowledge of Constitutional Law during the Quiz, Eminent Journalist, Mr. Rahul Dev called upon the aspiring lawyers to imbibe the values and basics of Constitutional Law in their heart and soul and the Quiz must have brought them closer to the Constitutional Law. He remarked that the Constitution of India, just like democracy, is one of the biggest in the world. “Today, India is facing a new set of challenges which are threatening the unity and integrity of the nation including rampant corruption, terrorism and there are no clear provisions laid down in the Constitution to deal with the same. The responsibility of restoring the unity and integrity of the country lies with the youth of the country”, stressed Mr. Dev

"Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high 
Where knowledge is free 
Where the world has not been broken up into fragments 
By narrow domestic walls 
Where words come out from the depth of truth 
Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection 
Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way 
Into the dreary desert sand of dead habit 
Where the mind is led forward by thee 
Into ever-widening thought and action 
Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake 
I am aiman kulsoom rizvi and it gives me great pride to be here on this 66th independence year of india.

15TH august 1947 has indeed been one of the most legendary moments in history. Etched forever in the sands of time was the reinvention of Hindustan. But not all the memories of that day are as glorious as history books have taught us. The lives of thousands lost in the mad rush to be on the right side. Soldiers bleeding away to protect the people from the violent elements. Brothers slaughtering each other all in the name of religion. Those were indeed some dark moments. And we owe it to our freedom fighters, our soldiers, our jawaans to have got us through those bleak times and delivered us to the world. Our freedom has been no mean feat. It comes with the price of the blood of our jawaans and the sweat of our kissans. Their undaunted fighting spirit, their remarkable courage and above all their undying patriotism must not be forgot on this 67th year of independence. But today is not just about remembrance, it is also about commemorating a legacy. A legacy that the entire world looks up to. We are a leading economy, the third largest democracy in the world. We are a nation who combine tradition with invention, morals with ethics, culture with progress in ways that no other nation does. However over the past few decades not all has been well. We have seen a rise in corruption, a decline in morals. But we as Indians must not lose hope. It is in our blood to fight for what is right. We are a youthful and an aspirational nation And we are rearing to go. Our forefathers had a dream. A dream that we can and we will unite and fight the real enemy. The enemy who is hidden yet so manifest. The real enemy ladies and gentlemen poverty,ignorance, disease and inequality of opportunity.
The following is an excerpt from the address made by the first prime minister of india to the constituent assembly on 14th august 1947.

‘At the dawn of history India started on her unending quest, and trackless centuries are filled with her striving and the grandeur of her successes and her failures. Through good and ill fortune alike she has never lost sight of that quest or forgotten the ideals which gave her strength. We end today a period of ill fortune and India discovers herself again.’

The achievement we celebrate today is but a step, an opening of opportunity, to the greater triumphs and achievements that await us. Are we brave enough and wise enough to grasp this opportunity and accept the challenge of the future?
Yes. Yes we are ready. Not all who are a Gandhi are necessarily a mahatma. We are no longer a nation of naives.

Amity  Law School Noida organised a guest lecture on  “Violence against Women” today on 31st July 2013 in F2 auditorium to sensitise and increase students awareness of violence against women in India today. The external guest speaker was Ms Winnie Singh, executive director from Maitri NGO, while Ms Manika Kantham, Law faculty in ALS Noida was our internal speaker on the topic. This guest lecture was organised by the Initiative for Gender Justice and Child Rights, a cell newly launched in ALS Noida, under the flagship of the ALS Centre of Law and Policy.

The Guest speaker, Ms. Winnie Singh (founder of Maitri India) talked about the need for respect and control of aggression in our society and in ourselves so as to stop any form of violence against women. She highlighted the different types of violence which exist in society, and how each one of us can forsake these forms of violence through controlling our own behaviour. Violence against women has been in our society for a long time, and it will only change if there is a genuine change in mindsets of people, even women themselves who contribute to violence against other women.  She further added that TOLERANCE for violence is one of the major causes for violence. If we stop tolerating violence against women, then only will violence against women will stop. She launched the “One million signature campaign” to stop violence against women, which Maitri NGO is supporting. This campaign is  a pledge undertaken by every person in India to stop violence against women through their own actions and show respect for women’s dignity and rights. Amity Law School Noida students showed their support to this noble cause by signing the pledge.

Ms Manika  Kantham from  ALS Noida highlighted the legal aspects on gender laws in India and highlighted the problems of violence tolerance in politics and media and propounded that sensitization on gender issues is a must for us to achieve genuine gender equality. She discussed the constitutional issues as well as various enactments in India and the UN charters. She made a brief presentation on gender violence by showing statistics in various forms and concluded that the effort to stop violence against women has to be a united effort of all.
