#SupremeCourt #SupremeCourtofIndia #divorce #law Image

Order: We have held that the period of six months can be dispensed with.

It is possible for this Court to dissolve the marriage on irretrievable breakdown of marriage.

We have laid out the factors for this, specifically with regards to maintenance and rights of the children.

The standard anti-tank weapon during the Vietnam War, the M72 LAW continued the legacy of WWII’s “bazooka,” providing frontline troops with compact, lightweight high explosive firepower.
Developed during the late-1950’s as a cheap anti-armor weapon, the M72 was a 2.6 inch single-use HEAT warhead launcher. Just over two feet long and weighing 5.5 pounds with a range of about 660 feet, the M72 was a great improvement over its WWII-era predecessor.
U.S. Army soldiers found the M72 to be the perfect anti-armor and anti-emplacement weapon for the dense jungles of Vietnam; its collapsed carrying state was waterproof, and its low weight ensured it did little to burden soldiers in the Southeast Asian heat and humidity.

In "Using Bruen to Overturn New York Times v. Sullivan," @msmith750 and @xanderrhetoric write, "There is reason to think that the Court may seek to apply this historical tradition approach beyond the Second Amendment context . . .
. . . While the Court states its historical tradition approach applies in Second Amendment cases . . . the Court itself justifies its approach in Bruen by referring to other constitutional rights—including the First Amendment.”
The Article is now published in Pepperdine Law Review's Annual Volume and available to read here:

The 2022 UCC Amendments help promote stability & predictability in commercial transactions related to a variety of cryptocurrencies (whether intrinsic, non-intrinsic, NFT, or otherwise). A thread clarifying some of the critiques by @theblaze's Daniel Horowitz & @1MarkMoss 1/n
@theblaze @1MarkMoss First, it is worth noting that the UCC is maintained as a joint project of the Uniform Law Commission and the American Law Institute. I am neither a ULC commissioner, nor a member of the ALI. I am a #law #prof @SMULawSchool & have been a #blockchain lawyer since 2011-ish 2/n
@theblaze @1MarkMoss @SMULawSchool I was, however, an observer on the 2022 UCC Amendments project over the long-haul of the project, and it was a long-haul - years in a process that was open to the public for participation...I am not sure changes to the UCC have ever been accused of being "sudden" before 3/n

Pondering the most socially & politically powerful tropes and memes (social constructs - please see R Dawkins’ “The Selfish Gene (you what?),” 1976) of the crazy-arsed 1880’s City of London we may stumble back some decades down a handy Memory Lane 2 our secondary school studies
So here the psycho-cultural (mental) foundation of the SA Law Society’s grandiose and socio-economically devastating Theory of Diminished Responsibility:

“In traditional literature a tragic hero is utterly vicious but in The Mayor of Casterbridge, Michael Henchard is not the..
“the typical tragic man, [palaru] tragic hero.. impulsive, arrogant & honest, ambitious at the same time.. moral value supported his control over his wife, dau. & lover”


“..a kind of mysterious & unavoidable power, character, fate, deeply..”

Enough already

1/ Thread (8) Young Lawyers who want to learn Criminal Law without help of any guide or mentor, may consider following points.
1) Criminal law is a "Tacit Knowledge" (Knowledge that is learned by doing a task. Just like learning to ride on a bicycle. Here the whole body learns the skill when a job is actually being done.)
2) To learn from a case, you must have access to some actual record of a criminal case.

1/ (7) Young lawyers often feel stuck in their career. They may try following exercise.

This exercise is called "20 Sentence Completion Exercise"
2/ Write, "I feel stuck in my life because ........ ".

Then complete this sentence 20 times. This will take out all worries from your mind and will put them on paper where you can see them.
3/ Then write, "I feel unstuck because .....".

Now, complete this sentence 20 times.

Here are some examples which have guided me :

1/ (6)Young lawyers who do not like Criminal Law, may consider following points.

Crimes happen in morning.
Crimes happen in Afternoon.
Crimes happen in evening..
Crimes happen during nights.
2/ Rich people commit crimes.
Poor people commit crimes.
Middle class people commit crimes.

Crimes happen in posh colonies.
Crimes happen in slums.
3/ Crimes happen in winter.
Crimes happen in summer.
Crimes happen in monsoon.

In criminal law you need to master only three laws.

In criminal law you need to read judgements on only three laws.

1/ (5)Young lawyers may find it helpful to keep a "Chronicle of Mistakes".

In young age, we are bound to make mistakes. After a hearing is over, we have lots of second thoughts on what we could have done differently to win the case.
2/ But by then, the bus has left. We feel sorry and guilty.

Following point can be remembered to reduce stress of discovering our own mistakes.
3/ "It is okay to be wrong. It is okay to commit mistakes. I showed up and I tried. And that is what it matters. "

It helps to keep a Chronicle of mistakes or a Learning Journal, to record what we could have done differently.

1/ (4)Young lawyers need to be clear about their fee policies.

I hear lots of juniors who complain that clients exploit them and pay them very low fees.

Following point can be remembered to reduce stress of being paid low fees.
2/ "Fee is not always in cash. It can also be rewards of other kinds".

Since 1982, my fee policy is :

"Whatever you can pay. You should be comfortable. And I should also be comfortable. You should not expect me to spend from my own pocket".
3/ My definition of "My being Comfortable" kept changing upward as my clients base grew.

Let me know if this suggestion is helpful and practical.
