Description
Justice K.K. Mathews1 Three Lectures is a lecture series intended to disseminate knowledge in the realm of public law and to give a critical analysis of the existing law with a view to finding out its relevance and justification.
This book contains the 1979 Public Law lectures delivered by Justice K.K. Mathew. The lectures were delivered from 18th to 20th December 1979 at the Cochin University, Department of Law. In the first lecture, Justice Mathew examines how the judiciary can blend its orthodox judicial function with policy-making. In the second, he explains the concept of natural law and the extent to which natural law provides a base for estimating and criticising rules of positive law. In the third lecture, he discusses the controversial terrains like the right to rebellion and the limits of obedience to superior orders.
The lectures provide an opportunity and a motivation for creative thinking on reshaping of law which is no doubt a juristic exercise. The book will prove to be a delight for scholars as well as practitioners.
