Liberty and Release
Indian law books
How does the Indian legal system work to serve you – and what does it ask of you as a citizen? What are the major laws, codes, and procedures you should arm yourself with to harness the good of the system and fight its ills and travails? Eminent lawyer Prashant Chandra takes the reader through a riveting, detailed, and comprehensive journey through some of India’s laws that are of central relevance to daily life. The primary focus of his book is the importance of liberty. It looks with academic thoroughness on Indian laws relating to liberty.
One manifestation of this is the liberty people sometimes seek from each other: in the case of a married couple, for instance, securing liberty can mean securing custody by a parent of his or her child, which often happens because of differences between spouses and their inability to continue life together as a family.
This Indian law books also deals with the importance and manner of securing bail, a necessary facet of liberty. In cases of detention, the remedies which need to be legally pursued are elaborately dealt with herein.
The history of the development of laws relating to liberty constitute another subject on which the book dwells, always by using a scholarly apparatus, so that where necessary references are provided in footnotes.
