About this Item

This work offers a quantitative analysis of the Indian Supreme Court`s Decision-making process adopting a methodology which is unorthodoxas well as innovative in the field of judicial research in India. It is unorthodox in the sense that it makes a complete departure from the mainstream writings of the common law traditions and shifts its focus from `what the judges say in their opinions` to `what do they do` by casting their votes in favour or against the parties involved in the controversies before them. The methodology is innovative to the extent that for the first time the individual judges` decision making behaviour has been subjected to a rigorous quantitative analysis in the overall institutional context. The book examines a whole range of factors which go as essential input into the Supreme Court`s decision making process. Several assumptions relating to the appointment of judges in the court, the Chief Justice and his leadership role, the business environment, the structural arrangement of its decision-making function, the nature of agreement and disagreement among the judges on the decision making panels and the value orientation of judges have been subjected to close scrutiny with a view to provide an understanding of how the decision-makers in the apex court go about making decisions which are not only of great significance for the immediate parties involved but at times may have far reaching consequences for a large number of groups and sections of the Indian society.
