The legislation aims to promote and regulate mediation as a primary means of resolving disputes in various sectors, including civil, commercial, family, and community disputes.

Navigating Indian dowry laws

Navigating Indian dowry laws involves understanding the legal framework, the rights of individuals involved, the challenges faced, and recent legal reforms. The practice of dowry has often been abused, leading to legal interventions to protect individuals from its negative consequences.
Many cases of dowry-related abuse go unreported due to social stigma, fear, and pressure from families. Societal norms and expectations can exert pressure on families to give or demand dowries, perpetuating the cycle. There have been instances of false dowry harassment cases being filed, leading to concerns about the misuse of legal provisions.

Strengthening Laws, Alternative Dispute Resolution, Awareness Campaigns, Legal Aid, and Empowerment Initiatives are some of the legal reforms and initiatives.
Are they helping? What more can we do as Indian Lawyers?

Join us at the upcoming panel discussion on this topic.
