Unlimited access to Legal Notes along with 5,000+ other digital magazines and premium articles
In the first issue of 2018, Legal Notes tries assessing the last year of the Indian judiciary through a bench of women lawyers and activists. As these different voices come together and share their experiences and review the year 2017, what is common is the demand for an efficient judiciary in 2018. In addition, we have one of the most twisted International cases seen so far where a former Peruvian President was released from prison by the current President of Peru who escaped an impeachment himself. In our regular section, we have curated some of the major judgements passed by the courts in the year 2017. In addition there is a special interview with renowned religious law reformist, Arif Mohammad Khan where he talks about an immediate need for the Triple Talaq bill.
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.
