Hindu Law

The Hindu law is credited to be the most ancient law system (approximately 6000 years old). The entirety of the Hindu law is said to be derived from two major sources:

  1. Ancient or original sources: Shruti (the 4 Vedas – Rigveda, Yajurveda, Samveda, Atharvaveda), Smriti, digests and commentaries, customs and usages.
  2. Modern Sources: Equity, justice and good conscience, precedent, legislation.
