When should one know whether it’s time to evolve and upgrade or whether to continue to stay the course you’ve always traversed? Because for India, maybe the new dawn of criminal jurisprudence might be here. The Indian Penal Code of 1860, the Code of Criminal Procedure of 1973 and the Indian Evidence Act 1872 are being replaced with new laws. Will India have a more equitable, efficient and accessible justice system? What does an ambitious legal makeover look like? How will justice be done in India now, though the heavens fall?

In this episode of CAM Radio’s Clear Cut, our Partner (Co-Head– White collar & Investigation) Ankoosh K Mehta provides an introduction to this insightful conversation with our Managing Partner Cyril Shroff, Senior Advocate Amit Desai exploring the new provisions may impact the entire society and citizenry of India, potential key motivations behind these provisions, the evolving role of technology in the criminal justice system, to what extent there’s an Indianization and evolution of what’s deemed to be British Raj laws, whether this is just old wine in a new bottle or whether there’s a substantive impact, unintended consequences, whether the system would be harsher or fairer in this new era of justice delivery system, what companies and corporates should keep in mind and more.
