What we do

Vivek Verma

Founder & Publishing Editor

As a law student, I always despised reading lengthy academic discussions with citations full of authors from distant corner of the world, judgments that never ended with few pages. Therefore, I always felt a dire need to present things in much simpler way and more palatable to the reader. This is precisely how Indian Case Law started in the year 2012.

“Law school teaches you one thing above all: how to speak while saying absolutely nothing.”

― Krysten Ritter

Early Days

Initially, the idea was to publish short and simple summaries of landmark judgments related to contract law in India. Moving further, we diversified the scope of this blog to several other interesting dimensions, viz. corporate law, technology law, curated case lists, movie reviews, contract drafting course, to name a few.

What is our USP?

One unique aspect of our write-ups and posts is they are always supported by most relevant case law and more authoritative primary sources, and factors in enforceability challenges. Our curated compilation of Case List is one of our most unique offerings to the IP litigators and academicians. We have also come up a with very creative way of explaining difficult concepts of IP law, through movies (like, PK), by breaking them down into simple stories that even a layman can understand.

How we can help

We love to connect with law students and help them out necessary guidance to navigate their career path, mentor them to write well-researched articles through our Research Scholar programme, and train them with certain practical skills that no law school usually teach and prepare you for.

“We lawyers do not write plain English. We use eight words to say what could be said in two. We use arcane phrases to express commonplace ideas. Seeking to be precise, we become redundant. Seeking to be cautious, we become verbose. Our sentences twist on, phrase within clause within clause, glazing the eyes and numbing the minds of our readers. The result is a writing style that has, according to one critic, four outstanding characteristics. It is (1) wordy, (2) unclear, (3) pompous, and (4) dull.”
