Legal Notes, the latest addition in the Newsline Publications group, proposes to bring a fresh perspective to legal issues. On any given day, there could be 40 different items in the news with respect to courts – right down from the Supreme Court to the district court on a range of issues from Blue Whale to NEET to Love Jihad and Blackberry messages. It’s as bewildering as it is exhilarating. In fact, it’s liberating that in this democracy of ours we have the ability to debate agree or dissent as we continue our march onwards. Legal Notes will seek to assess, analyse, debate and dissect how the business of law impacts our lives in a hundred different ways. LN hopes to record the business of law each month for your reading pleasure.
While a lot needs to be set in place by the BJP government post its spectacular win, there have been unsettling questions on the dynamics that would play out between the judiciary and the government in its second term. In the Legal Notes’ July issue, Jagdeep Chhokar, Prakash Ambedkar and Jayna Kothari share their perspectives on various issues and provide future plans to make the situation less tense. In addition, the Delhi High Court’s order allowing all car makers to appeal their collective fine of Rs 2500 crore by the Competition Commission of India to the National Company Law Appellate Tribunal has not gone down well with the troubled car owners. Their worries are simple: car making companies must not monopolise the post-purchase market by making car spare parts available only at registered workshops at inflated prices. On the international front, Legal Notes looks at a troubled Benjamin Netanyahu who for his support to the ultra-orthodox Jews on not joining the Army is facing tough times in pulling together a coalition government. Plus, all our regular sections and a special feature in the Books section for all the cricket fans glued to their television screens.
