NCU Law students visit Juvenile Home
With the coming into force of the new legislation on Juvenile Justice in 2015, it has become the need of the hour to revisit the mechanism introduced in the new Act for dealing with juveniles in conflict with law. Keeping this in consideration the School of Law, The NorthCap University organized a visit to the Prayas Observation Home for boys as well as the Juvenile Justice Board II in Delhi on 29 March 2017. 70 students from School of Law visited the home which is run by the Prayas Institute of Juvenile Justice under the MoU signed with the Department of Women & Child Development, New Delhi.
They are custodial children and their inquiry is conducted by the Juvenile Justice Board located in the same premises. One of the primary objectives of the visit was to conduct an empirical study on various rehabilitation measures adopted by the Home for the delinquent juveniles. The students had an opportunity to interact with the inmates and the instructors providing training to the children of various age groups. The students were accompanied by faculty members Ms Archana Sarma and Mr Navin Pal Singh.
