#DakshaDialogue is organizing a webinar on Public Law Lawyering.
Date: 17th June 2020
Time: 5:00 PM to 6:00 PM
Moderator: Mahesh Menon, Faculty, Daksha Fellowship
Public law practitioners are at the forefront of limiting governmental authority or defending state action. While the petitioner's counsel has to often work against the presumption of constitutionality enjoyed by legislative action, the state counsel is usually caught at the crossroads defending executive action against charges of ultra vires, unreasonableness or disproportionate action. Both these actors are expected to play an important role in ensuring governance that operates within legal bounds and in a manner respectful of civil liberties.
This #DakshaDialogue on Public Law Lawyering aims to draw from the rich experience of two seasoned practitioners who have discharged their duties with aplomb.
Mr. Arvind Datar will share his experiences in opposing State action through several tax, constitutional law and administrative law challenges.
Mr. PS Narasimha will share a lifetime of experiences practicing in the Supreme Court and in particular, defending State action across a range of cases.
Prof. Mahesh Menon, Faculty at Daksha Fellowship, will be moderating this discussion, which will, among others, explore the following themes:
