Faculty Seminar | The Meld Model: The Holy Grail of Indian Corporate Jurisprudence

December 1, 2021

The Faculty Seminar will be held on December 1, 2021.

Speaker

Rahul Singh, Associate Professor of Law, NLSIU

Abstract

A popular quip about theory and practice goes on the lines set out below.

Theory: everything is clear, but nothing works;

Practice: everything works, nothing is clear;

And sometimes theory meets practice: nothing works; and nothing is clear.

Regardless of the obvious element of humour above, is it possible to model a theory of Indian corporate jurisprudence which lucidly works? And is such a model effable? This paper answers in the affirmative and posits that jurisprudence of Indian corporate law is desirable, effable and possible.
