The country’s welfare might not be measured in the quantum of happiness to majority and grief and pain to minorities. However, it cannot be totally waived and be done away with. For how can social welfare legislations be not measured on the quantum of maximum pleasure and minimum pain? The essence of Bentham’s theory and his philosophy is retained by the world even in today’s modern day legislation. It is human nature to take a step forward when he can measure the risk and the gain of that direction. Thereby the modern day man is much more a hedonistic calculus. This research aims at reflecting the various juncture whereby the modern day legislations, directives, judgments and policies draw their essence from the Theory of Utility.</p> Susree Sinha Copyright (c) 2020 Susree Sinha Sun, 21 Jun 2020 00:00:00 +0000 Rules of natural justice with emphasis on Nemo Judex in Causa Sua: An insight into administrative law <p>“<em>It is the spirit and not the form of law that keeps justice alive</em>”. <strong>Earl Warren</strong></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>This paper contains a brief overview of the concept of Natural Justice and how the two rules of <em>Audi Alteram Partem</em> and <em>Nemo debet esse judex in popria causa </em>forms the integral part of it.

A teacher plays a pivotal role in a student’s life to be played in different capacities such as a friend, philosopher, guide depending on the situation and circumstances. Teaching whether in school or higher education institutions requires a lot of hard work, perseverance and dedication on the part of the teacher. The six-letter word teacher can be denoted as T-Tolerant, E-Energetic, A-Awesome, C-Caring, H-Helpful, E-Enthusiastic, and R-Responsible, an effective teacher needs to have all these qualities. Teaching in higher educational institutions is becoming very difficult these days as there are plenty of knowledge available very easily at a single click which is both a blessing and a boon for a teacher. Blessing in the sense that unlike earlier times when a teacher had to confine his or her understanding and knowledge within few books, these days a lot of relevant and endangered e-resources are available for a teacher which ensures a comprehensive understanding about any topic before disseminating the knowledge to the students. But this can also be said to be a boon as the available content turns to be a limitation for the teacher not to develop an analytical understanding of the subject. Moreover, the student can also easily access the materials which may be a hindrance to the creativity of thoughts and free flow of knowledge. Teaching law involves a lot of techniques, methods and skill. Being a unique degree which when offered as 3Year, LL.B., 5 Year B.A.LL.B (Hons), B.Com. LL.B.(Hons), BSc. LL.B. (Hons) etc., is known as a professional degree. But, in LL.M. which is again designed both as 1 Year Degree or 2 Year Degree is more of an academic degree.</p> Madhumita Acharjee Copyright (c) 2020 Madhumita Acharjee Sun, 21 Jun 2020 00:00:00 +0000 Constitutional Equality: Mythical or Factual? <p>A very significant character of this paper is, that the researcher has made her painstaking efforts to stave off the curving of work to any particular segment. Every discussion and findings made in this paper covers every under the classed and unheeded section of society. Through, this piece of work researcher tends to bundle up the segments which are devoid of privileges provided in policies of Equality. Constitution of India talks about Equality, but in the real sense, the concept of equality is sketchy as provided in the Constitution of India. Legal jurisprudence provided equality incomplete without the essence of Equity. A Copernican question arises in the implementation is that “whether mere treating everyone equal is sufficient to bring harmony in society?” A general understanding of the scenario presents a different opinion to harmonize society. Equality will work only if it followed with Equity, in furtherance of it India needs to formulate numerous laws in required area.</p> Ramila Rajpurohit, Bhupal Bhattacharya Copyright (c) 2020 Ramila Rajpurohit, Bhupal Bhattacharya Sun, 21 Jun 2020 00:00:00 +0000 Unravelling the translucent theories on espionage: A periodical study on Crime and Security <p>The concept of human based Espionage has grown between nation-states since the time of ancient civilisations thus the same is not a new phenomenon, but in the last few decades the globe has moved into an absolutely new dimension of spying through artificial intelligence and internet system aptly known as cyber espionage.
