Unlimited access to Legal Notes along with 5,000+ other digital magazines and premium articles
The December 2017 issue of Legal Notes focuses on the identity crisis people face in different stratum of the society. While the cover story raises questions on Hindus becoming a minority in eight states in Hindustan, the story of a Navy sailor being sacked from her job post her treatment of gender dysphoria tells a tale of the consequences one faces after finding a cure to their crisis. Open the barred doors talks about the need to promote open jail formats in the present prison system to help reintegrate prisoners in the society who otherwise - post the harsh treatment they receive in jails - are forced to chose between living a pitiful life or going back to criminal activities. Glossary, this time focuses on the cases pending against the Malgudi Mafia and the subsequent raids that will make the transition of Chinamma to Amma a farfetched dream. Plus: all our regular sections.
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.
