Court orders are two-dimensional documents. The discussion and debate over court orders forms the basis of the India Legal show on APN News channel, all of which was moderated by Editor-in-Chief Rajshri Rai. In 2021, we covered some major topics that showed up on the legal landscape. Here are a few:

Aryan Khan case: The Media on Trial

The Aryan Khan drug case has once again raked up the bugbear of trial by media. Did media behave responsibly enough in reporting the case? Did it cross the lines of legal sanctity and ethical impropriety in its quest for ratings? Where the rights of the accused trampled by media blitzkrieg? Did media behaviour conform to the normative framework placed by courts in various pronouncements on trial by media?

Women in Black: Their dismal number in the judiciary can’t be overlooked

2021 is the 100th year of Indian women taking their first baby step in the judicial profession. This year also marks an effort to give a more equitable representation to women in the judiciary. Chief Justice of India Justice N.V. Ramana has called for 50% reservation for women in the judiciary. Is it possible and how? Are there sufficient numbers? Are women candidates meritorious enough? Will the judiciary be compromised by reservations? These were questions our panellists faced in the discussion.

Women Justices Break the Glass Ceiling

August 31, 2021, saw the dawn of a new era for the Indian judiciary. Three women judges, along with six male counterparts, were sworn in at the Supreme Court by Chief Justice of India NV Ramana.
