GNLU Gandhinagar is organising a National Conference on Surrogacy: Issues & Challenges on 17 September 2011.

The organisers say:

Surrogacy is a contemporary practice, especially in a developing country like India. This ‘Rent-a-womb’ industry in India is estimated to be around $445 million.

The position of law governing surrogacy has different faces in various countries across the world. Majority of the countries prohibit commercial surrogacy including developed nations like the United Kingdom and Canada.

There are various issues clouding the concept of surrogacy. It is an ongoing war of Morals and Ethics vs. Technological Advances. In plethora of ethical and scientific arguments, lies one unanswered question, “Why should be commercial surrogacy legalized, even after knowing the possible drawbacks and disadvantages?”

India is possibly the only country in the world to legalize commercial surrogacy by virtue of the Assisted Reproductive Technology Bill, 2010.The bill is a proposed law to deal with the haphazard and unorganized medical tourism industry developed by the unregulated surrogacy laws in the country. The bill intends to protect the rights of the various parties to the agreement. It also makes the legal status of surrogacy clear.

In the light of the above, it is imperative to know the legal, judicial and the practical applicability of the bill, as it is one of the major legislation introduced by India to regulate a contemporary issue.

The objective of the conference is to address the issues and challenges surrounding Surrogacy. The Conference will see the convergence of Medical and Legal scholars and will provide a platform to all the stakeholders to deliberate the issues in a comprehensive manner.

Participants who wish to present a paper/attend the conference are requested to go through the conference brochure attached here for details.

Don't be so touchy about it. I didn't say anything about your law school. However, let me tell you something, the only reason why your chest-thumping about our college is because you could n't make it to The Law School, which, incidentally I happen to go to. I guess you know who is the "lozer" now.
Grow up.

Oh! Job. Well Firstly, I am not studying Law for a job but for interest. Secondly, I will get a job if I want. Thirdly, there are more things which one can do which you, in my opinion, are not aware of.

Ok!! I get it, it's just too hard for you to even understand the context of "get a job".
and if i am not wrong then, you are one of those mediocre-but-arrogant kind of guys, who like to believe they are here to change the world, primarily by picking up lame debates.
good luck with your "more things".
P.S. please don't waste your time any further by trying to retort you could use those precious moments for "more things"

Arrogance, well that one can see from the statement put forward by you above. "See I am from this" . Really. I would suggest you apply the advice on yourself instead of preaching others :)

Sincere one :)

India is not the only country thinking of legalising. In fact some countries have already legalised it.

So, just because other countries have legalised it, India should not or should not discuss at all?
