One after the other, the series unfolding in the judiciary, may or may not point to the discrepancies created by one person but surely says a lot about the uneasy atmosphere in the highest court of the country. It's ripple effect? An impeachment motion for the CJI. But how far was that move justified? Former Union Law Minister H R Bhardwaj analyses the situation as he comments on the manner in which things were taken up. In addition, a review and a conversation with renowned writer Arun Shourie on his new book, 'Anita gets Bail' where he talks about the "life or threat situation" faced by the judiciary today. In addition, a special section 'LN Debate' that features prominent politicians like Sharad Yadav, Kalyan Banerjee and R S Surjewala to the Chairman of the National Law Commission Justice Balbir S Chauhan presenting their views on the much-heated issue, 'one nation-one poll.' The International section features the stories of former presidents who are convicted as it discusses the year 2018 to be the year of conviction for leaders across the globe. In addition, the journey of Asaram Bapu from his asharam to the Jodhpur jail and the Windrush generation who are finally speaking against the deportation move.
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.
