Introduction <br />The legal system defines a set of rules, conduct or/and procedures which are necessary for establishing and maintaining a disciplined society. <br />It has been formulated by custom, agreement and national interests and is enforced through a set of institutions. <br />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.<br />The Indian Legal system is one of the oldest and longest written set of laws in the world<br />Our legal system has its roots in the legislature formulated during the British Raj era. <br />
