TALKING OF JUSTICE People’s Rights in Modern India

by Leila Seth

Category: Non-Fiction

In Talking of Justice, eminent jurist Leila Seth discusses several critical issues that she has engaged with in a legal career spanning over fifty years—violence against women; the nurture of the girl child; the need for a uniform civil code; women’s rights; prisoners’ rights; gender sensitization of the judiciary; and judicial administration, among others. From the landmark Justice Verma Committee (2012-2013), on which she suggested amendments to the law as well as speedier trials and more effective punishment for all those accused of sexual assault and violence against women, to her experience as a member of the 15th Law Commission of India (1997-2000), to her appointment as the one-member commission to enquire into the custodial death of Rajan Pillai (1995-1997), Leila Seth shares her insights on some of the most substantive and contentious matters facing the nation today.

Keenly observed and elegantly argued, Talking of Justicegoes deep into the laws of the land that need to be reviewed and revised, and offers suggestions for protecting the rights of the people, especially those who are marginalized and vulnerable.
