About Webinar: Curbing Crimes of Sexual Harassment
The sole aim of the webinar is to build awareness around the broad array of the role of law students in curbing the crimes related to sexual harassment. It is a humble initiative to invite thinking minds of different areas to deal with the issue of “sexual harassment” in specific to a law student role in curbing such crimes with an objective to spread awareness and promote a good cause among the legal community.
Sexual harassment complaints are on a rise and law enforcement and organisations must understand their legal compliance obligations. In furtherance of this, time and again many laws are enacted which can support curbing crimes against sexual harassment and assure people a safe environment to live their life with dignity. However, the core concern is the implementation of these laws. Though crimes like sexual harassment are on the rise in all fields, being a victim of Sexual Harassment could be the most traumatic experience for anyone. Law students have been playing a crucial role in the welfare of society in curbing crimes related to sexual harassment through their in-depth knowledge of the legal scenarios.
