Chief Justice of India Dr. DY Chandrachud has received an invitation to attend the 'J20' summit, gathering Heads of Supreme Courts and Constitutional Courts from all G20 member countries. Organized by the Brazilian Federal Supreme Court during Brazil's presidency of G20 2024, the summit is set to occur from May 12-14, 2024.

Held in Rio de Janeiro, the conference will center discussions around three primary themes:

1. Promoting Citizenship and Social Inclusion by the Judiciary:

- How can the Judiciary address the growing societal demand for justice that is more accessible and inclusive? What strategies can be employed to improve judicial processes and make them more responsive to the needs of society?
- In what ways can Constitutional Justice contribute to fostering social inclusion, upholding the principle of equality, and reinforcing the Rule of Law?
- What steps can the Judiciary take to dismantle systemic barriers to justice for vulnerable individuals and groups? How can public trust in legal institutions be strengthened, and citizen involvement in the administration of justice be encouraged?

2. Climate Litigation and Sustainable Development:

- What is the current state of climate-related litigation and efforts toward ecological protection? What obstacles exist in leveraging legal avenues to advance climate security, and how can these hurdles be addressed through the judicial system?
- How can the Judiciary contribute to the enforcement and oversight of policies aimed at fostering sustainable economic development and preserving the environment? What are the limitations to judicial action in this domain?
- What role does the Judiciary play in reconciling economic development interests with environmental conservation within the legal framework? How can innovative legal approaches be encouraged by the Judiciary to tackle climate change and promote sustainable practices?

3. Digital Transformation and Technology to Enhance Judicial Efficiency:

- What are the primary opportunities, impacts, and challenges associated with adopting new technologies, such as generative artificial intelligence, to improve the efficiency of judicial processes? How can transparency, personal data protection, adherence to ethical principles, and mitigation of risks and biases be ensured while utilizing these tools?
- How can the Judiciary adapt and innovate in light of the rapid technological advancements, particularly concerning legal proceedings and judicial administration?
- What measures can the Judiciary take to counter disinformation campaigns that undermine the delivery of justice? How can the integrity of legal and judicial information be safeguarded amidst the proliferation of misinformation?

CJI would not be holding courts during the last week ensuing summer vacations.
