approach is designed to expose students to judicial cases in order to understand the legal
analyses employed by the Supreme Court within different political contexts, to understand
extent of exercise of power by the three wings of the government legislature, executive and
judiciary, and the on-going tussle between them, especially in the current political set-up in
India. The course further shall highlight the manner in which Indian federalism works through
the division of powers between Centre and State in India; and shall also discuss the power and
procedure of amendment of the Constitution.

Objectives of the Course:

1. To explain to the students different systems of governance in the world and the peculiarities of
the Indian governance set up
2. To understand separation of powers
3. To understand Indian federalism and division of powers between Centre and State
4. To understand jucidial appointments and judiciarys role in the Indian polity
5. To understand the dynamic nature of the Indian Constitution and the on-going debate on its
amendability.
6. At the end of the course, students shall be equipped to demonstrate a practical understanding
of Constitutional governance by recognizing commonly encountered issues and applying
relevant standards and rules when presented in hypothetical and unfamiliar fact patterns.

SUBJECT: SPECIFIC CONTRACTS

FACULTY: MR. BIPIN KUMAR AND DR. ANJALI THANVI

Introduction:

Law of contract forms the backbone of the economic system of any country. The economy of the country is
based on the market forces and contract supplies a wide range and variety of institutional mechanisms
which facilitate economic development according to changing needs and requirements of the society.
Freedom of contract is the foundation of the capitalist model of development. Interestingly even the
socialist models are also adjusting themselves to the above universal truth in the varied forms and
shades. We can say that todays economy is of contractors, by contractors, for contractors. Most of our
contracts seem to be horrendously designed: an odd combination of a narrow accounting mentality on one hand,
and clever ways of systematically introducing ambiguities on the other. No wonder they are being contested
across the board, bringing the economy to a grinding halt. With the economy growing in unprecedented ways,
entrepreneurs have evolved new practises based on expediency and convenience. Standard form of contracts has
therefore become a dominant form of commercial intercourse. There is the need to study the contract law from
new perspectives accommodating new demands of users and consumers.

Specific contract confers specific rights and duties upon the contracting parties. Every student of the law
ought to be updated with the contemporary manifestations of specialized branches of contracts and the
role they play in ordering mercantile practices.

Objective of the Course:

To initiate the students to different kinds of contracts with emphasis on the intricacies therein.
To bridge the gap between the theoretical understanding of the contract and its practical orientation,
need, relevance and challenges.
To provide an insight into the justification for special statutory provisions for certain kinds of contracts.
To invite the attention to the emerging new fields relating to the law of contracts.

SUBJECT: LEGAL LANGUAGE & ART OF ADVOCACY


FACULTY: DR. RASHMI MATHUR

Objectives of the Course

Concurrent to the birth of legal systems was the birth of Legal Language. Writing and interpreting legal
documents, contracts and letters require the utmost clarity and acumen with a sound knowledge of the
relevant laws and legislations. This paper traces the history of legal language, legal terms, expressions
and maxims employed in writing. Legal Affectation is discussed at length so that those starting out on a
legal career should be given guidance and good practice from the outset to eliminate bad habits
involving circumlocution in legal writing. The paper also introduces the students to the concept of
narrative jurisprudence. Various literary texts with a substantial legal background are studied to help
the learners build up a jurisprudential perspective that invites them to re-examine the stories and
narratives within which we know and practice law. Legal Drafting is taught at a preliminary level to
help students learn the nuances of legal writing. Hence, the objectives of the course are -

I. Introduction to the History of Legal Language and Art of Advocacy


II. Introduction to Narrative Jurisprudence
III. Introduction to Legal Drafting
IV. Introduction to some masterpieces of Literature with a legal background and relevance
V. Introduction to legal Editing and Reporting skills
