While parting with the case, we would like to make it clear that this Court has merely pronounced on the correctness of the view taken by the Delhi High Court on the constitutionality of Section 377 IPC and found that the said section does not suffer from any constitutional infirmity.
Apparently, networking plays a very important role in law. You make contacts, become friends with your seniors, become friends with your co interns and later use these contacts in getting a job. So, what about a person like me who doesn't believe in the concept of networking? Who finds this concept absolutely shallow? If you
Earlier I was not at all interested in pursuing law. It was because of my father and his uncle, who was once the Chief Justice of Allahabad High Court, that I gave Law entrance exams just for the sake of it.
How many women are going to write blogposts about terrible experiences that have happened to them at the hands of the Judiciary if they are subject to committee hearings despite clearly stating that they did not want to pursue the matter? Would you email close confidents about an incident of sexual harassment if you knew
Since yesterday, a lot of media persons have tried to contact me – either directly or through the journal. Since the committee has now been constituted, I will depose before the Hon’ble judges. Thus, it won’t be appropriate for me to speak to members of the media anymore.
It takes a long time to acknowledge or accept it for what it is…a perverse act of exploitation and depravity, often times at the hands of someone you trust. You wish it away, you hope that the “touch” was an innocent one or a one off accident…but when the full force of the incident finally
The incident is now a while behind me, and they say time heals all wounds. But during the most difficult emotional times, what helped me most was the ‘insensitivity’ of a close friend whose light-hearted mocking allowed me to laugh at an incident (and a man) that had caused me so much pain.

A regular day in class when a teacher tells us the names of some amazing seniors in RGNUL. Somehow the name of Aparajita Roy Paul stuck with me. That evening, laptop in front of me, hers was the only name I could remember. As it is with all things in the internet one thing led
It keeps coming back, striking me, how a university that is expected to influence the country and drive change cannot even touch the atmosphere of its own adjacent surroundings. How we are expected to draft laws on women’s safety in the future when we couldn’t do anything about what is happening right outside of campus.
Courtesy of my discipline and good marks and everything which made a student ‘good’ in those times (there I use ‘those times’ for the first time: September 6, 2013. Note to self: ageing) I was made to sit down by the teacher whenever the whole class used to stand-up as a punishment. By Tanuj
Joining a law-school as an Assistant Professor, many years later, did not belie that promise. Ed Cowan, the Australian test cricketer, wrote that ‘Starting test cricket was like entering a realm of dreams made real. I was the same person, yet I was in an imaginary world where everything was epic and over the top.
An exceptional teacher creates melodious classes and Bhadhbhade ma’am does exactly that. She made us adore the first law subject that we learnt. She introduced us to the niceties of all provisions, which we would have otherwise disregarded. By Thulasi K. Raj
My father received his law degree 5 years AFTER I was born. Before that, he was pretty much unemployed with random odd jobs at his discretion. My mother was essentially the breadwinner for the family during these years. She used to teach in whichever school I used to study as it had a two point
My goal is not to achieve normal results as a teacher - the task at hand is to make legal education accessible in a country where respect for the legal system is going down day by day. Teaching hundreds of students every year will not satisfy me - I want to teach thousands, and one
Behind Plato, There is Socrates. Behind Alexander, There is Aristotle. Name any successful person I can assure you that behind them there will be a teacher’s words of wisdom. Teachers have the power to create you and also to destroy you. By Dhanya.T.Mallar
His mind raced, his pulse quickened and his vision numbed. Like Hamlet, his mind was caught in a loop-“To do or not to do”? He finally remembered reading somewhere that fortune favours the brave and made up his mind. He looked around and saw that no one was around. By Atul V Mohan
We can be designing cars, or arguing in a court of law, or writing code for a bank, or building a school. Whatever work we choose, whatever politics we choose, we are all connected with bigger processes and systems around us. To be aware of them will make us more responsible in the work we
