Unlimited access to Legal Notes along with 5,000+ other digital magazines and premium stories
'Ali, Bajrangbali, EC to be put in jail for two days if voted to power, Don't split your (Muslims) votes." Say what you please. The Election Commission set its ears and politicians' speeches were on its radar. With the list of leaders temporarily barred from campaigning on the rise, LEGAL NOTES in its cover story dissected the reasons and thus the subjectivity that lies in the decisions made by the Election Commission. With the dissent between Election Commissioner Ashok Lavasa and the rest of the Commission on the clean chits given to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Amit Shah on five different occasions becoming public, how does the speech-o-meter actually work? On the International front, the magazine has a late Dutch Doctor and the co-founder of Insys Therapeutics- a pharmaceutical company, both making waves for their fraudulent activities. In addition, Rajasthan is seeing the making of its new Right to Healthcare Law for the citizens of its state but as Dr Girdhar Gyani points out, will the move be beneficial especially since the state isn't in a position to make such schemes mandatory. Plus, all the 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.
