“In pursuit of perfection” is the motto of VIPS. To achieve this goal, Law School, Vivekananda Institute of Professional Studies, under the guidance of Dr. S. C. Vats, Chairman, VIPS, an eminent educationist and philanthropist, focus of each and every aspect and process including methodology and pedagogy required to impart education.
The Case study method is one of the essential pedagogies in legal education. The reason is contemporary law is not the only the outcome of the legal statutes, but also of cases decided by the courts. Statutes and textbooks do provide insight into the law; however, application and applicability of law may differ from case to case. The courts provide additional clarifications and interpretations of enacted legislations on the laws based on precedents and other related sources of law. At times the courts need to see into the overseas judgments, as well, to find out the solution to a legal problems. Therefore, there is a need to study the cases to understand various scenarios under which a law may be applied.
Considering the significance of case study, Vivekananda School of Law and Legal Studies, VIPS has come up with a Case Study Manual Series on all subjects of contemporary importance. Much thought has been put into the selection of the most important cases along with the relevant material. The contents are primarily based on the syllabus of universities. he cases selected are the one which represents the development of law. The work is divided into four to five chapters, having the following points, namely:
An introduction is tracing out the theoretical and/or theoretical background, relevant statutes, and contemporary issues related to the subject.
I. At a glance
It will help readers to understand the significant aspects of the theme/topic of the chapter.
II. Decided cases and material
This part of the chapter will give selective paragraphs of cases decided by the courts. It will also cover the material relating to the chapter.
III. Practice exercise/Model questions
The questions will be suggestive of the points to think about. It will help to open up the issues to be discussed or researched further.
Case Study Manual Series will be helpful for students and academicians, as also for voracious readers who wish to trace the development of the law through decided cases. It is also helpful for the aspirants of competitive examinations, such as Civil services and Judicial services. Above all, it is useful for every curious person, who wishes to know the evolution and development of the law through cases.
We would like to thank Dr. S. C. Vats, Chairman, VIPS and entire Management of VIPS who have encouraged and given the opportunity to law faculty members to come up with the Case Study Manual on various important subjects.
