  • 2. Introduction to Legal System in India
  • 3. Introduction
    The legal system defines a set of rules, conduct or/and procedures which are necessary for establishing and maintaining a disciplined society.
    It has been formulated by custom, agreement and national interests and is enforced through a set of institutions.
    The legal system is critical as it shapes politics, economics and society in various ways and acts as the best social mediator in relations between people and institutions.
    The Indian Legal system is one of the oldest and longest written set of laws in the world
    Our legal system has its roots in the legislature formulated during the British Raj era.
  • 4. The Indian legal system is formulated baring in mind the diversity of the country and with due respect to the religion, customs and traditions of the people.
    For instance the Indian Divorce act is different for Hindus and Muslims which is aligned to their respective religious guidelines.
    The three main branches of government that act as the central institutions for interpreting and creating law are:
    •    Impartial judiciary.
    • 5. Democratic legislature
    • 6. Accountable executive
  • To implement and enforce the law and provide services to the public, a government's bureaucracy, the military and police are vital.
    While all these branches are created and bound by law, an independent legal profession and a vibrant civil society inform and support their progress
    Today law is a practice that is dependent on specialisation. New generations of lawyers focus on specific areas of legal interest.
    This has resulted in the birth of specialisations such as areas of securities transactions, intellectual property law, insurance, cyber law etc.
