Started in 2005, Law and Other Things is India’s first online portal devoted to debates and ideas in constitutionalism, legal history, and public policy. True to its description as ‘A blog about India’s legal system, its Courts and its Constitution’, the blog seeks to publish engaging and insightful articles on matters of general public law.
The blog has been cited in numerous law review articles, legal books and most recently by a Constitution Bench of the Supreme Court. The blog is widely read by judges, lawyers, law professors, judicial clerks, and law students across the country.
It is also followed in many Commonwealth countries including the UK, Australia, Singapore, Kenya, Malaysia, and South Africa. The Blog is currently managed by a Student Editorial Board from NALSAR University of Law.
