Description
Courts usually complain that legislations are obscure, ill-drafted and create conundrums. Lexical dexterity is not imaginative interpretation when the need is socially sensitive penetration of the purpose of the law......A Significant part of the book is devoted to drafting of Constitutions, a difficult, delicate and spinal process to master, which is necessary to make a competent draftsman. Elaborate attention is paid to this branch since all corpus juris must submit to the values of the Constitution. Inevitable judicial review figures in the discussion. Federalism, unitary State, their fundamental features and the key rules to be considered while drafting constitutional instruments - all these have been briefly but adequately dealt with by the author. I Commend Atre's contribution to judges, lawyears, legal draftsman and law teachers for equipping themselves better in an ares where more such books are needed dealing with other dimensions of the jurisprudence of legialative draftsmanship.
