Dear Friends,
We are very pleased to share that Law and Other Things turned 15 Year old this August! To mark this milestone, the blog will soon feature a series of posts from its long time contributors. The series started last week with a post written by our Senior Editors Vikram Raghavan, Arun Thiruvengadam with our Student Editor-In-Chief Dayaar Singla, discussing the blog's evolution and future direction. In the second post in this series, our Senior Editor V. Venkatesan writes about the lack of natural justice in the contempt proceedings against the actor Suriya.
Blog Posts
The recent retirement of Justice Arun Mishra saw an outpouring of articles and opinion pieces on his legacy. We bring you an Explainer by our reporter, Shravani Shendye, in which she explores the various facets of his controversial legacy and discussed over 14 articles on the matter here!
We published a piece titled 'Profession and Privacy: Critiquing the Surrogacy Bill', in which Vibha Nadig looks at surrogacy as a profession under Article 19(1)(g), and argues that the Bill infringes on the right to privacy under Article 21. Prakhar Raghuvanshi, in a piece titled 'En Masse Suspension of Labour Laws vis-à-vis Ordinance Making Power and Fundamental Rights'examines the validity of the Uttar Pradesh Government's Ordinance suspending all labour laws in the territory of U.P. This was followed by an article from Rahul Machaiah titled 'Dignity and Due Process under Siege by the Police', wherein he criticises the tradition of the police forcing arrested persons to pose for photos for the media.
Continuing his Letter to Law Students series, Prof. (Dr.) Nigam Nuggehalli (Dean, School of Law, BML Munjal University), on Teachers' Day, wrote about three of his law professors who inspired and shaped his career as a legal academic. In his third piece, he discussed the importance Adjusted Gross Revenue case, and larger lessons that law students should be taking away from 'boring' rather than 'sensational' cases. 
We also had an engaging series of posts on NLSIU's decision to conduct NLAT; the first post can be found here
New Scholarship
As our readers might have noticed, we now host a New Scholarship section on the Blog which brings to you recently published scholarship in the area of Public Law as well as some very exciting debates on some of these publications! 
This month we continued our discussion on the latest Issue of the Statute Law Review with Raghav Kohli's article titled 'The Sound of Constitutional Silences: Interpretive Holism and Free Speech under Article 19 of the Indian Constitution'. He introduces his arguments in this post. Prof. Arpita Sarkar has authored a response to the piece. Here, she disagrees with the propositions that restrictions to free speech extend beyond the scope of the provision, and that conflicts between individuals' enforcement of the right fall within the scope of the constitution. 
We also continued our discussion on Vol. 4 Issue 1 of the Indian Law Review with Robi Rado's article titled 'A Tale of India, Diaspora and Development'. An introduction to his arguments can be found here. This was followed by a response from Neeraj Grover, in which he contextualizes Robi Rado's arguments with his own perspectives, anecdotes and references.
We also covered the release of Issue 13(2) of the NUJS Law Review. An introduction to the same can be found here.
Please do write back to us with your views on this new format! We look forward to hearing from you.
Stay Safe!
