The Judicial Process in Dharmaśāstra-s: A Comparative Study in the Contemporary Context

(This conversation will be in Hindi)

The INDICA Center for Indic Studies in Law & Justice (CISLJ) presents a conversation with Dr Nilam Yadav on the 4th of September 2022 at 1900 hrs. This conversation intends to put the spotlight on some aspects of her book धर्मशास्त्रीय न्यायिक-प्रक्रिया : वर्तमान संदर्भ में एक तुलनात्मक अध्ययन published in 2014 by Chaukhambha Orientalia. This conversation with Dr Yadav will primarily be in Hindi and will include a focus on the comparative study (तुलनात्मक अध्ययन) aspect of her research. Dr Yadav’s book is likely to be of interest for those concerned with topics such as धर्मशास्त्र की परम्परा, न्यायिक प्रतिक्रिया एवं उसके अंग, व्यवहारप्रतिक्रिया का अनुप्रयोग, धर्मशास्त्रीय दण्ड संहिता, all of which are also the titles of the chapters of her book.
