We're thinking of reviving CLIF over the course of the next trimester at NLS! CLIF this year will be different because it will carry no course credit, it will be a discussion group in which people can voluntarily participate! Do write in with suggestions as to what you are interested in thinking through.

On an aside, we recently had a small group discussion on the rise and fall of the jury trial in India, using material from Gyan Prakash's new book, Mumbai Fables and the events surrounding Nanavati case. Issues that were raised included the role of laypersons in adjudication, the role of media in 'deciding' court verdicts and contemporary trials that have captured public imagination. More on this later. Watch this space!
