About

Welcome to the official website of the Students for Liberty Student Chapter at the Department of Law, University of Calcutta

The Students for Liberty Chapter at the Faculty of Law, University of Calcutta is a non-partisan network of legal professionals and students committed to expanding the ideas of individual liberty, freedom of expression and the rule of law.

As a student body run by conservative & libertarian law students of the Department, we believe in the constitutional obligation of the State to protect inalienable and fundamental rights of all citizens; limited governance effected through a strict application of separation of powers; limiting arbitrary exercise of centralised authority by embracing the principles of federalism well suited for pluralistic and diverse societies; and the inherent duty of Courts to interpret laws as they are and not how they should be. Our commitment to free speech and expression fosters diversity of legal philosophy and thought necessary for holistic intellectual nourishment.
