Law and Literature: Readings in Englishis specially designed for students pursuing the
three-year law course or five-year integrated degree course in law education
institutes including national law schools. Catering to the long-felt need of
law students for a book on literary readings, this book offers a careful
selection of poems, plays, parables, experiences of famous lawyers as students
of law and the insights these can lend to a student of law; the genesis of
hypothetical but very pertinent questions of law; how a mechanical application
of the laws leads to questionable outcomes and different dimensions in which
law can be perceived. Selected texts have been included with the objective to
enable students to introspect on the meaning and process of education. The
literary pieces in this book are aimed at lending a perspective that
theoretical courses of law fail to offer
