REASONING THE REASON

LEGAL REASONING

LOGICAL REASONING

ANALYTICAL REASONING

LEGAL REASONING

Principles: (1) The Constitution is supreme and all laws in violation of the provisions of the Constitution are void.

(2) A client can exercise his fundamental right to have a lawyer of his choice, provided that particular lawyer is in a position to defend him.

Factual Situation: The Constitution of a country A confers upon its citizens the fundamental right to be represented by a lawyer of their own choice in the criminal proceedings. A citizen, Sunil, accused of a crime, engaged a famous criminal lawyer Singhania to defend him. Just one day before the trial was to begin Singhania's house was raided by income-tax authorities, and he was detained by them in that connection. Sunil moved a petition in the Court that he was entitled to be represented by Singhania, and therefore, the latter should be released so as to enable him to argue the former's case.

Decision :

(a) Sunil will succeed because his fundamental right of legal
       representation is being violated due to detention of the criminal
       lawyer.
(b) The lawyer is not in a reasonable position to defend Sunil, so Sunil's
       petition would be rejected.
(c) Sunil can hire any other lawyer.
(d) None of the above

The answer is (b).
