Speaking for the Bench Selected Judgements of Justice V.r. Krishna Iyer


Speaking for the Bench Selected Judgements of Justice V.r. Krishna Iyer by P. B. Sahasranaman

This work brings together the key judgments of Justice V.R. Krishna Iyer, a former judge of the Supreme Court of India. Quoting Justice Iyer extensively, the volume provides a full account of his landmark judgments that are widely interpreted and admired. The book also examines his deep understanding of important jurisprudential issues that reflected in progressive judgments delivered by him. Further, it provides circumstantial basis for such landmark judgments. With a focus on Justice Iyer's clear vision and deep understanding of human dignity and human justice, it also analyses significant changes in law in recent years supplementing it with relevant judgments of other judges. Categorizing judgments under various heads such as constitutional law, civil law, administrative law, election law, and commercial law, this volume would enable the readers to easily locate the relevant portions of the judgments without going deep into them. The work compiling and dissecting pertinent portions from the landmark judgments of the legendary Justice Iyer would be useful to judges and lawyers, as well as teachers, academics, and students of law.
