Unlimited access to Legal Notes along with 5,000+ other digital magazines and premium articles
Legal Notes' October 2017 issue takes a look at happenings that have raised legal issues and impacted society. The cover story on the latest real estate fiasco that is unravelling with more than 3,000 homebuyers trapped in the insolvency trial. There are also details of the battle between religion and evolution: who will win -- a baker or the madly-in-love gay couple? What should be the centre's stance on one of the biggest refugee crisis that engulfs the nation: to deport or to provide shelter to the Rohingyas? Plus: A new theme 'Captured' where a picture speaks more than words covering crucial issues like the defeat of social activist Medha Patkar and the impending disaster that awaits at Mumbai Airport.
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.
