BRING RENAISSANCE IN LAW: CJI

The Supreme Court Project Committee on Restatement of Indian Law (ROIL) and The Indian Law Institute (ILI) on October 11, organised the release of the 'Restatement of Indian Law on Public Interest Litigation', published by Universal Law Publishing Co. Pvt. Ltd; 'Legislative Privilege' by Lexis Nexis- Butterworths Wadhwa and 'Contempt of Court' by CCH-a Wolters Kluwer Business, at New Delhi. The Chief Guest, Hon'ble Justice S.H. Kapadia, Chief Justice of India released the above publications.

The 'Restatement of Indian Law' is neither a commentary nor a catalogue of case law. It is not opinion-based but is intended to be an authoritative neutral statement of the law on the subject. The object of a restatement is to state the current law of the land by considering the relevant constitutional/ statutory provisions and judicial pronouncements, to identify and remove uncertainties and ambiguities surrounding the legal principles and to clarify and simplify the law for its better adaptation to the needs of the society.

The restatement is in respect of specific subjects in areas where there is a need for a clear statement of law. The restatement has been subjected to public scrutiny by placing the draft prepared by the contributors before jurists and academics, inviting comments and suggestions for improvement. The suggestions received have been processed by the respective Editorial Committees under the chairmanship of Justice R.V. Raveendran, Judge, Supreme Court of India. The committees made appropriate changes to ensure that the restatement attempts to achieve clarity and accuracy.

Speaking on the occasion, Attorney General for India , Goolam E. Vahanvati, requested the Chief Justice of India to allow the continuation of Justice Raveendran as chairman of the Supreme Court Project Committee on Restatement of Indian Law, even after his retirement. The Hon'ble Chief Justice did not waste a second in giving his nod by waving at Attorney General his thump-up.

In his address Chief Justice S.H. Kapadia emphasizing the research on laws said, "Globalisation has come to stay. New concepts in science, technology have emerged, law being no exception. Young lawyers have to cope-up with the changing concepts, not in the old constitutional law but the  new concepts like mergers, acquisitions and corporate laws. For this extensive research is required."

The CJI further said, " India is an emerging country because it is knowledge based economy. We should therefore capitalise on the knowledge resources to compete with other emerging economies like China . We have to concentrate on research, otherwise, we will miss the bus. I see my dream of research for the future development especially in the field of law."
