In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxNLUJAA, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxNLUJAA event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
The TEDxNLUJAA, is going to be a Glorious blend of ideas in between the Legal Fraternity and Contemporary innovative ideas, where the audience will be mesmerized by the perfect potion of innovation, path breaking ideas and legal principles. How these things shape our lives? And How we can shape the world and ideas around us?
The concept of Paradigm shift was given by the German Scientist Thomas Kuhn in his Book 'The Structure of Scientific Revolutions'. The concept was given to explain the anomalies that can't be explained under the universally accepted principles. We at National Law University, Assam are staunch believers of the concept of "Paradigm Shift". We believe in exploring new horizons and thinking out of the box, to solve the problems beyond the rational human thinking, problems of the society, problems of the people, thus complying with our own goals as The "Social Engineers" of this country. Come explore with us this unexplored horizon of the New Paradigm, where we will shift out limits and extend those ideas to the world. So hold your mind for these six hours and embark on this "Paradigm Shift" journey from 'Known to Unknown'.
