The Role of the Supreme Judiciary in Progressive Social Change

Akola Education Society’s AKOLA LAW COLLEGE, Akola is organising a UGC Sponsored Two – Day Interdisciplinary National Dialogue on the theme of “The Role of the Supreme Judiciary in Progressive Social Change” 06th & 07th Feb. 2016.

ABOUT THE COLLEGE: Akola Law College, affiliated to SGB Amravati University, Amravati and approved by Bar Council of India, New Delhi, started its regular functioning from the academic year 2005-06. The College runs LL. B. five year integrated degree course and LL. M. course in: (a) Criminal Law, (b) Business Law, (c) Constitutional and Administrative Law, (d) Corporate Law and (e) Human Rights.

The College is known for its own ethos, culture, academic discipline and merit. The College imparts legal education, which will be more meaningful and effective in the present scenario. The College stands apart from the other colleges by organizing regularly conferences, seminars, workshops, guest lectures, field trips, symposia and high level interactivity with judiciary. After successful organisation of four conferences, this time the college aspires to organise Two-Day Interdisciplinary National Dialogue on the “Role of the Supreme Judiciary in Progressive Social Change”. The Dialogue takes its lead from the approach in “The Hollow Hope: Can Courts Bring about Social Change?” (2nd Ed., 2008).

OBJECTIVE OF THE DIALOGUE: The aim of this Dialogue is to examine the empirical effects of decisions of the Supreme Court of India on everyday lives of marginalized citizens. There is a widespread belief among Indian academics, political activists, and journalists that the Supreme Court is not only an effective agent of politically progressive social change, but also, perhaps the only governmental institution capable of furthering the interests of the relatively disadvantaged. The Dialogue is designed to explore this belief.

The focus of the Dialogue is not on the question of whether decisions of the Supreme Court have changed the law, nor on whether they have changed governmental policy. Rather, the Dialogue asks whether the interventions of the Supreme Court have realized litigators’ hopes by actually increasing the access to and opportunity for marginalized social groups to live better lives.

The Dialogue aims to measure the impact of decisions of the Supreme Judiciary to further the interests of the relatively disadvantaged. The dialogue might prove to be an effective step to figure out the steps taken by the supreme judiciary towards the creation of a welfare state.


Environment Concerns
Social Welfare Rights
Gender Bias
Legal System Reforms
Criminal Justice
Human Rights
Corruption and Other related topics

March 01, 2016 is the last date for registration and submission of papers.


The purpose of the conference is to discuss the relationship between language, reality and life in Wittgenstein’s Philosophy. In Tractatus, language is viewed as a picture or model of reality. But the notion of language undergoes radical change in Philosophical Investigations. Here, language is taken as open-ended; it is in a flux and is a continuum. The Later Wittgenstein’s consideration of language as a game brings out the fact that there are many jobs that a language does and that there are many ways in which language can be related to the world.

In Investigations, language has been considered from an ordinary point of view. That is, there is not only language of propositions or language of logic, but also language in the ordinary sense of the the term. And this ordinary language is the primary language that we have and deal with in life. Therefore, the task of philosopy is to discover the structure, logic, and meaning of ordinary language. In Tractatus, language consists of elementary propositions and their truth functions. This constitutes the logic of language. But in his later philosophy, Wittgenstein is not concerned with the logical structure of language as described in Tractatus. He feels that there should be no search for the logical language and there is no need to go for the hidden struture of language. Rather, there is a shift from the pictorial form of language to the functional character of language. Language is something through which we communicate with one another in our day to day life. Thus, each language-game is an activity, a form of life. Here, the term language-game is meant to bring into prominence the fact that the speaking of language is a part of an activity or a form of life. So, in every language-game, there is a form of life. To talk of form of life is nothing but to talk of a linguistic activity.

According to this view, each language-game is an activity, a ‘form of life’ which is closely associated with the way human beings live as linguistic beings. So, language is not considered here from a narrow logical point of view, but as it is closely embedded in human life. Each language-game is a form of life and is an expression of human action. So language is not one man’s language rather it is the language of the human community. A child starts learning language from the society which helps him to develop himself as a linguistic being. Here, language is not only the medium of communication but also a tool that allows a person to express himself.

Each language-game introduces a particular activity, i.e. a particular form of life. To talk of a form of life is nothing other than to talk of an activity. That is, each language-game carries an episode of life. As Wittgenstein points out: “I shall also call the whole, consisting of language and the actions into which it is woven, ‘the language-game’.” (Philosophical Investigations, Sec. 10) Thus, our actions are embedded in language-games, in the sense that, they show how words are being used in a particular way. So, speaking of language is a part of communal activity, a way of living in a society, i.e. our form of life. The idea of language brings along the idea of life as we cannot imagine what language is, in the absence of human life, in the community. Therefore, the aim here is to explore the relation between language and life.

The sub-themes are: Language and life, Language games, Family resemblance, Forms of life, Rule and following, Language and Meaning, Ordinary language and Grammar, Language and rules, Picture theory of meaning, Logical form of language, Language and reality.
