Product description


"Bhuwania’s book takes us to ground realities with theoretical insights. A wonderful book for many reasons." -- Rajeev Dhavan, Senior Advocate and Author of 'The supreme court of India: A socio-legal critique of its juristic techniques'

"Courting the People deserves to be – and probably will be – an instant classic."-- Gautam Bhatia, Author of 'Offend, Shock or Disturb: Free Speech Under the Indian Constitution'

"This is a very significant book that substantially challenges the orthodoxy in a manner that was long overdue, and sets the agenda for future research."-- Tarunabh Khaitan, Hackney Fellow in Law, Oxford University and Author of 'A Theory of Discrimination Law'

"Anuj Bhuwania’s “Courting the People” is a book that needed to be written and one that should be widely read and debated."-- Aparna Chandra, Research Director, Centre for Constitutional Law, Policy and Governance, National Law University of Delhi

"Bhuwania’s argument is hugely compelling, and is difficult to counter, particularly on the back of constantly mounting evidence"-- Suhrith Parthasarathy, Advocate, Madras High Court

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.
