Unlimited access to Legal Notes along with 5,000+ other digital magazines and premium articles
November 2017 LEGAL NOTES serves up a thali of all the major events that have shaken the political world -- legally. The cover story focuses on three issues: the SC's determination to create fast track courts for tainted politicians; the bitter battle between the Delhi government and the Lieutenant Governor and the conundrum around the Rajasthan Ordinance that has not gone down well with anyone but the Rajasthan government. In addition, there is a focus on the pitiful state of the discipline in educational institutions these days highlighting the Satender Awana case. This issue also has an interesting story from an industry insider who almost got a chance to meet the Bhai of the underworld, Dawood Ibrahim.
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.
