SNLC Legal Essay Writing Competition 2015
Sree Narayana Law College invites law students to participate in the Second Annual SNLC Legal Essay Writing Competition 2015.
Right to privacy is one of the most cherished of all fundamental rights. However, overawing development in the field of IT has led to an apprehension of invasion of privacy. Recent revelations as to large scale snooping by the Government for all information and telecommunications makes these apprehensions well founded. Information and communication technologies have deeply delved into every aspect of human life. Some of these technologies are deeply intrusive having implications on privacy. This necessitates a critical review of the right to privacy in the dawn of Information and Communication Technology.
