Rights in Review - The Supreme Court in 2015

The responsibility of the Supreme Court of India in upholding fundamental rights as enshrined in the Constitution is unparalleled. Year on year, it sets new new standards and precedents in the protection of fundamental rights. The Rights in Review report, in its second year, aims at examining fundamental rights cases decided by the Supreme Court in 2015.

The Centre for Law & Policy Research , a non-profit organisation based in Bengaluru, has come out with a review of the Supreme Court’s key decisions in 2015 involving the protection of fundamental rights. The report examines cases which form new law, settle uncertain areas of law, or extend the application of the law to new arenas. The discussions have been organised thematically around the core fundamental rights: life, liberty, equality and religion.
