About the Institute and Moot
Unitedworld School of Law (UWSL) is a statutory institute recognised by the Bar Council of India and is a constituent college of Karnavati University.
Karnavati University Moot Court Society (KUMCS) and Center for Advanced Research in Constitutional Law (CARCL) is organising the 1st UWSL National Moot Court Competition from 27th to 29th March 2020.
The Inaugural edition of the moot elaborates on Surrogacy being a practice where a woman gives birth to a child for an intending couple with the intention to hand over the child after the birth to the intending couple. It allowed various sections of society to conceive children including members from LGBTQ community, single parents, unmarried couples in live-in relationships, divorced individuals and couples who suffered from some form of infertility related issues. The expanding jurisprudence of Article 21 have significantly fabricated several dimensions of life.
The concerned disputable issue manages different challenges that may prevent the relevance and applicability of surrogacy laws. It is high time to balance the rights ensured under the Constitution with the limitations imposed by the authorities through regulatory mechanisms.
