The book, probably first of its kind, brings to bear a hard-core sociological Focus on several related aspects of the Indian Legal profession and Indian legal system. All these studies were completed during a decade, between 1974-75 and 1985-86, and touch upon the Indian legal profession both in its micro as well as macro perspectives, ranging from a district Court setting in Punjab to an All-India context and setting. It deals not only with the dynamics of bar elections at a district court setting but also with the overall Structural and Cultural connections between the profession and polity, the culture of Criminal Justice available at trial courts, and also the rigours of change through which both profession and Society are passing. The book also provides a sociological focus on Public Interest Litigation, in which profession and Judiciary along with the Press and academics are playing their seminal roles in laying the foundations of a new legal culture. In addition, the book also takes a questioning Look at the contemporary Indian legal scene and assesses its capacity to further the process of social change.Printed Pages: 180.
