“The Constitution must evolve with the felt necessities of time to meet the challenges thrown up in a democratic order governed by the rule of law.”
– Hon’ble Dr. Justice D.Y. Chandrachud, Chief Justice of India
The above quote by Hon’ble Dr. Justice D.Y. Chandrachud, Chief Justice of India, is an excerpt from the famous Right to Privacy judgment that highlighted the transformative role of the Indian Constitution. The Indian Constitution is dynamic and will forever adapt itself to changing times. It was drafted with the intention of paving the way for a better tomorrow.
Similarly, society evolves on the basis of norms that change in each generation. The inputs by young authors and students in the new edition of Vox Legis will form the building blocks of a fruitful future. It gives me great feeling of pride to see the students and faculty members of the Faculty of Law who put in their time and effort to extend the legacy of Vox Legis. The magazine since its inception has played a vital role in giving a platform to authors who wish to express, explore and analyze different arenas of law.
The team under the supportive guidance of their mentor Ms. Tarakeshwari Bulusu, Assistant Professor of the Faculty have worked to create another wondrous edition of the Vox Legis Magazine with the theme ‘Scientia’. This theme represents the meaningful insights of authors who contributed to this edition as they evaluate various unique subjects. The issues discussed in this edition of Vox Legis reflect the sociological aspects, implications and impact of law in society.
My heartfelt compliments to Team Vox Legis for their persistent efforts in enriching this magazine. I am confident that the excellent standard of this magazine’s content will be appreciated by all readers.

I am an avid reader and an adventurous soul. I believe in the notion that if somebody offers you an amazing opportunity but you are not sure if you can do it, say yes - then learn how to do it later, and do it with grace.
