LJP’s Constitutional Law of India (3 Volumes) by H.M. Seervai – 4th Edition Reprint 2021.
The Critical Commentary on the Constitutional Law of India by the eminent Jurist HM Seervai is a Masterpiece. It is a book for advanced students [LL.M. (Constitutional Law) and Higher] and Practitioners of Constitutional Law. It presupposes a high degree of familiarity of the reader, with the Constitutional Law of India, Politics related to the Constitution, and the the General Principles of Constitutionalism. It offers a comparative perspective on the development of the legal theories of Constitutional Law, frequently quoting decisions from USA, UK, Australia and other Common Law Jurisdictions and explaining how the Courts in India have been influenced by these.
Maybe a bit too heavy for an LL.B. student or casual reader without a legal background, but otherwise an engaging and interesting book from which Lawyers at the High Courts can derive insights to argue their cases more decisively, and scholars of Constitutional Law comprehend the ideas and process of arriving at decisions of most Constitutional cases. It is acknowledged as an authoritative source of Constitutional Jurisprudence in the High Courts.
Best Studied in conjunction with DD Basu’s exhaustive ten volume Commentary on the Constitution of India, this critical commentary by Seervai provides an insight as to how and why the decisions were given as well as explains in lucid detail the alternate and critical views on the largely positivist commentaries given by Basu.
A must have for every Advocate aspiring to practice in the High Courts and for Constitutional Law scholars aspiring to academe.
