Product description


'Courting the People is a book that needed to be written and one that should be widely read and debated. It will form part of any reading list on PIL in India, mainly because by naming, calling out, and documenting the public secrets of PIL, the book provides an important counter to the mostly hagiographic narratives on PIL and its dramatis personae. In particular, Bhuwania's vividly portrayed ethnographic accounts demonstrate the quotidian realities of PIL in India. … Through these vignettes into the inner workings of PIL, Bhuwania provides a trenchant and compelling critique of the jurisdiction.' Aparna Chandra, ICON

Book Description

This book shows how public interest litigation (PIL) grants appellate courts flexibility in procedure, allowing them to manoeuvre themselves into positions of overweening authority. It locates the political challenges that PIL uses in its very process, arguing that its fundamentally protean nature stems from its mimicry of ideas of popular justice.
