About Webinar on Judicial Independence vis-a-vis Judicial Activism

The emergence of judicial review gave birth to a new movement which is known as judicial activism. Judicial activism has turned into the most important means to enhance the applicability of the particular legislation for the betterment of society. Unlike the other countries’ constitution, the Indian constitution, by virtue of Articles 13,32,226,141 and 142 provides the scope for the emergence of judicial activism.

The responsibilities which a Court carries in a country with a written constitution are very onerous. The courts thus act as the Supreme interpreter, protector, and guardian of the supremacy of the constitution by keeping all authorities–legislative, executive, administrative, judicial, or quasi-judicial within legal bounds. In light of such, Amity Law School Gurugram is organising a webinar on “Judicial Independence vis-a-vis Judicial Activism”.

About the Speaker

Mr. Vikas Singh is a Senior Advocate practicing in the Supreme Court of India, elected as President of the Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA) in 2017, and former Additional Solicitor General of India (Supreme Court). He has more than 30 years of experience in legal and constitutional matters. He has argued several significant constitutional matters such as reservation in educational institutions, the liability of the authorities established by the State towards payment of Income Tax, etc.
