Abstract

In this essay I endeavor to discuss the issues of legal system in theory and in practice particularly non-implementation of laws in their true spirits resulting in injustice(s) to the masses. It is a diligent attempt to critically focus on some the recent issues such as Imrana Case, MMS Scandals & porn CDs aspects, the Anti-Sikh Pogrom of 1984 as to how the justice got derailed and denied despite there are various laws to tackle such situations. The practical aspects of law and legal system are also analysed supported by various case laws and factual situations. The issues of fair trial, legal aid and need for speedy disposal of cases in the courts have also been critically examined in the light of various Supreme Court judgments including the influence of powerful and influential persons on courts and the legal system particularly in Indian context. Causes of delay in getting justice are also analysed with relevant data, regarding the number of judges and pending cases in various High Courts, published by Law Ministry in 2003 (Annexure I). Some suggestions are also given followed by the conclusion.
