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.
A lot has been said and predicted about the 2019 elections. While the country is in election mode for votes to the 17th Lok Sabha. The May issue of LegalNotes brings together the many issues that confront our electoral politics and how over the years, the laws have been strengthened to make for a more transparent, vibrant and stronger democratic edifice. While much has been said and written about the politics around the Modi government, LegalNotes evaluated the working of the judiciary under the Modi government. The relevant question in this scenario became the nature of judgements passed by the judiciary and the consequent impact (positive/negative) of these decisions on the country. What is the deal with the new games and challenges that seems to be engulfing the entire nation? Be it PUBG or the Kiki challenge, why is everybody going bonkers about them? In addition, we reviewed six books on elections, presenting a comprehensive picture that could help you analyse the seven decades of the Indian elections so far. Plus, all the regular sections.
