Covid-19 and women

Vulnerability of Women

The vulnerability of women world across is a known fact. In India, the vulnerability may be attributed to the power structures and disabilities created artificially over many centuries. These disabilities are apart from the physical and biological differences. In such a situation, the law cannot work in an equal way for the women. For instance, if a woman is arrested for a crime and she has to deposit the bail money, she may not be in a position to deposit the money in the same way as a man who has a secured job. In times of Covid-19 lockdowns, women are not getting proper payments and this may create further disabilities.

Concept of Administrative Law

Introduction

Administrative law is that branch of law which deals with the administrative authorities. Due to the existence of the principle of “separation of powers”, the three branches of the State, namely – the Legislature, Executive and the Judiciary undertake different functions.

Why should law students read book reviews?

Have there been times when you come across many interesting book titles? On Amazon or from library or social media. I’m referring to the law related non-textbooks. For example, books written by Nani A Palkhiwala and Justice HR Khanna.

As young law students, you’ll be tempted to read them. Some of your internship bosses may ask you to read those classics. Truth is that they might have not read these books entirely! 😁

However, you feel like asking – do we need to read all of these books or at least few of them to improve our personality as corporate lawyers in the future?

Methods to overcome mental block

There is a concept called “writers’ block” – a situation where a writer is unable to write further and suffers a mental block. Often in life, we face mental block during various situations. Mostly, we are unable to find the reason for such block and find it hard to move beyond the mental block. If the mind is blocked, we are unable to progress physically also.

In the previous post about developing your reading interests, I suggested that reading novels is a good way to improve your language.

In the initial days, one main distraction for the readers is the new / advanced words. Since you may not know many of the advanced words, you would be forced to check the meaning from a dictionary. How to overcome this?
