A criminal case usually starts with a complaint at the police station and investigation leading to an arrest.

A decision to charge is made and the arrested person is then charged with an offence .. ~a Thread ~..

After the Prosecution arrives at a decision to charge, the accused person will be brought before a Criminal Court
The Office of the Director of Public Prosecution (ODPP) has developed policy documents to enhance accountability, transparency and consistency. One such document is β€˜The Decision to Charge Guidelines (DTC)'.

Thread : Four questions that may predict success of lawyer.

1/ Suppose you do have a abilty to read a law report and to make notes from that.

But do you also have ability to do the same when heat is 47 C and when there is no air conditioner?

#lawyers #lawstudents
2/ Do you have that abilty even when you are very much tired and feeling very sleepy ?

You may have ability to read any law report when you are required to do so for a case. But suppose, in your free time you are sitting in a court's law library,
3/ do you feel like opening any law report randomly and to start reading it randomly?

Suppose you have come to court but you have no case today. Do you feel like going and sitting in court of a most boring and most rude judge, a judge who keeps insulting lawyers one by one?

Today the European Commission will publish a proposal for a new law which will make the interception, analysis and monitoring of *ALL* digital communications (messengers, forums, direct messages etc.) mandatory.

#privacy #humanrights #chatcontrol #surveillance #dignity #csam
Let me be clear - this is ILLEGAL under EU Treaties and Case Law under the principles of proportionality and necessity. This new law will turn the EU into a surveillance state.

#privacy #humanrights #chatcontrol #surveillance #dignity #csam #childsexualabuse
500 million citizens will be subjected to complete blanket surveillance - the impact on privacy will be profound. Everything we have fought for since 1949 - our values, our principles, our democracy and our human rights, will be undone with the scratch of a pen.

Thread : Can a Police Officer seek Stay Order from Court if he is transferred, for not investigating as per wishes of political leader?

1/ The general answer is NO.

2/ Before 1982, if a govt officer was transferred in violation of guidelines, Courts used to stay such transfer
3/ Then a legal principle was evolved, "No govt servant has right to serve at any particular place". (So even if he is transferred in violation of transfer guidelines, no court can grant stay order on transfer.)

This principle of law, put all govt servants at mercy of Admin.
4/ After this principle was evolved, the Courts became helpless.

Though they can see that an honest govt servant is being transferred wrongly, they cannot stay the transfer order..

Thread : About double lives of Public Personalities and some methods to see what is hidden from public eyes.

1) If you become a public person, you may also have to start living a double life.

A public person has to manage perceptions of public.

#lawyers #lawstudents
2/ The public perceptions of a public personality is formed by the way he is seen in public, the way he speaks when he is public, what he is seen "writing for public viewing". This is all about managing optics. Now professional services of Perceptions Managers have also come up.
3/ This automatically means that a Public Person must hide that which is distasteful to public eyes and he should display only that which is suitable for public. This creates a double personalities within one individual.

Appalling bit of subediting(?) but the article itself lays out both the history and US context of #RoeVsWade and the consequences of overturning it with rather more nuance:… The Times view on US abortion law and overturning Roe v Wade
The "right approach" the writer appears to support πŸ‘‡ is the codification of the #RightToChoose into federal #law - which should have happened decades ago. The major issue being the parlous state of US politics... What it should also do is push the issue to the top of the p
For the avoidance of doubt, I absolutely support women's #RightToChoose - it is not for ANY authority to tell people what they can or can't do with their bodies. Anger is justified, but not enough; this is an issue around which people must #mobilise and begin taking back #agency.

Thread to explain "How murders are punished in India, in accordance with degrees of murders and why law to give death sentence to child rapist may not stand scrutiny of Judges, and why there is trend to impose reformative punishments"

1) You may find this thread interesting.
2/ This thread may be long as it is very difficult to explain these concepts in short. But it will Not be a very long thread.
3/ Know that in India, there is no detailed classification of different types of murders as First Degree Murder, Second Degree Murder etc.

Thread about how Judges examine a document when a doubt is expressed about genuineness of that document.

1/ The question was about genuineness of a Will.

The man claimed "He was servant of the deceased. All his relatives had left him in his old age.
#lawyers #lawstudents
2/ He was looking after all court cases between deceased and his sons. Being pleased with his service, the old man, before dying, signed one page typed will, in which one property was given to him."

There was doubt about genuineness of this Will.

3/ Judge examined the Will like a Detective.

It was possible that this man may have obtained signature of old man for purpose filing some case and then he may have misused this paper for making Will in his favour.

Judge carefully looked at Will.

#lawyers #lawstudents
2/ a Statement for purpose of argument.

b) "Defendant has cheated me." This is again, your opinion. This is not a Statement for purpose of argument.

c) "Defendant cheated me of 50 lakh rupees by giving promise of giving a flat". This can do. The Judge

3/ can understand what is your problem.

Judge can then ask you, "Why do you say so? What is your basis for saying so?"

Now here you are supposed to answer with some evidence (documents or other things) from which it is obvious that you might be speaking truth.

Thread on story of lawyers, cobblers, tailors and rise of pro-poor political parties

1. 50 years ago, cobblers were seen outside every court. They used to sew and polish boots of lawyers.

Then machines came which made boots for lawyers. Machines also came to replace
2/ boot polishing work. Now they have almost disappeared..

The tailors used to have a shop in every street. They used to sew coats for lawyers.

Machine made clothes and coats came. And the tailors too disappeared.
I do not know where they went and

Then there are talks that robots have been invented which can replace lawyers.

I am not sure where lawyers will go and how will they maintain their families.

Thread on "Citing Reportable and Unreportable Decisions of Superior Courts after explosion of Internet Law Reporting Software which give a unique citation reference to each judgement."

1) There was a time when lawyers used to cite SCR a govt publication in arguments.

2/ Then came a period when lawyers begin to cite SCC (And AIR) a private publication in arguments in courts.

Then many other publications came, like Judgement Today, SCALE, and several other weekly and daily reports came and they used to be cited..

Then internet came.
3/ After internet came, many software's like Manupatra etc came.

Lawyers begin to take print outs and the print outs were cited as judgements.

Many times, these print outs used to print name of lawyer who is licensed to use this law software.

Thread on need for lawyers and lawstudents to participate in public debates

1/ If you are a lawyer or law student, I can say,

"Vasant J Desai, my senior, used to say, 'Contribution of thoughts is the greatest contribution one can make to mankind'

#lawyers #lawstudents
2/ You can contribute your own thoughts on social media on any platform..

It may also improve your verbal expressions and presentation writing skills.

#lawyer #law #socialmedia #lawstudents
3/ It can also improve your arguments in courts.

Expressing one's thoughts, coherently, in a string of words is a skill required in legal profession..

There need to be an order and a subtle curtsey to opposite side, in whatever we may say.

Thread on "How NOT to open arguments in courts?"

1) These are my personal views. There are no hard and fast rules.

Every judge can react differently even if the opening statement of an argument is same.

Use your own discretion, experience and wisdom.
#lawstudents #law
2) Do not open arguments by saying that "This is a legal aid matter".

This irks most judges. You are indirectly saying to judge that 'I am obliging this poor person by taking this case, kindly be sympathetic to this litigant*.

Judge may be already knowing that this was a
3/ legal aid case. I have found that judges do not like these kind of opening lines.

Also don't begin by saying that "On last date, in this case such and such Senior Advocate had appeared and.... "

Judges do not like to be influenced in this way.

For Law Students and lawyers : Scope of Pillory Punishments

1/ In middle ages, a wooden plate was fixed around neck and hands of a convict, in such a that he can look like a walking banner. The hands were so fixed in wooden plate that he cannot eat or drink with his own hands.
2/ Then the convict was allowed to move in the town with wooden plate in his neck and hands.

This had dettent effact on people and there used to be less crime (Perhaps).

There are however provisions that

In present times, such punishments are not prescribed in law
3/ That certain crimes can be allowed to be compromised only with permission of Judge only.

This gives some powers to invent some new types of punishments to a Judge..

It was in news some years ago, that a political person was forgiven by judge only if he filed an undertaking

Finally, the #GoldacreReview is published! (During Parliamentary Easter holidays, mid-ping-pong on the #HealthAndCareBill...)

It's 221 pages - each PDF page is a double page spread - so this could be a lo-o-o-ong [Thread].

First point to note, in the Terms of Reference (p5), is that this is about "access to #NHSdata by #researchers, #commissioners, and #innovators" - i.e. #Planning and #CommercialReUse - so it is directly relevant to the operation of millions of people's #NationalDataOptOuts...

1/ Prescription applies to all legal claims & debts and means that after the lapsing of a certain period of time, the debt or claim will be extinguished. The amount of time afforded to a specific type of claim/debt before being extinguished is prescribed by the Prescription Act.
2/ As a rule, the consequence of prescription is that the person who is indebted to another person will not be liable to pay the debt and is no longer under any obligation to pay same after the prescription period has lapsed.
