The Indian Supreme Court was established nearly seventy-five years ago as a core part of India's constitutional project. Does the Court live up to the ideals of justice imagined by the framers of the Indian Constitution? Critics of the Supreme Court point out that it takes too long to adjudicate cases, a select group of senior advocates exercise disproportionate influence on the outcome of cases, the Chief Justice of India strategically assigns cases with an eye to outcome, and the self-appointments process-known as the collegium-is just another 'old boy's network'. Building on nearly a decade of original empirical research, this book examines these and other controversies plaguing the Supreme Court today. The authors provide an overview of the Supreme Court and its processes which are often shrouded in mystery, and present data-driven suggestions for improving the effectiveness and integrity of the Court.An unputdownable, valuable addition to the study of the most vibrant organ of the Indian Republic, the Indian Supreme Court-with a seminally important list of issues arising in and about the Court, written forthrightly, analytically, absorbingly, and, above all, backed with solid empirical data and live examples. Not to be missed.This is one of the first works of its kind that empirically analyses the Supreme Court. The conclusions of this book were often whispered in the corridors of the Supreme Court, but now we have empirical data to back up these claims. As a long-term practitioner of law, both inside and outside the courtroom, I see the link between the wholeness of the Constitution and the role of legal professionals and judges in this book. The Supreme Court has been viewed as a provider of justice. This book empirically analyses the data to [show how] institutional and administrative structures and processes of the Court aid or impede its ability to deliver just outcomes. The book will undoubtedly be a significant academic contribution to the conversation around court reform.This book is perhaps the only contemporary research on the functioning of the Supreme Court. Not only is it topical, but [it also] clearly suggests how the Court can be more efficient and effective with just a handful of reforms.
