"Juris: A layman's guide to the law" has been published in July 2015 from Palal publication. About the book
This book is a collection of articles that have been published in the weekly Juris section of the Dhaka Tribune during the months between July 2013 and April 2015. Articles in this book are on diverse topics that have some bearing on law. However, despite being a book containing articles on legal topics, Juris is not designed only for the people with a background in law; rather the aim of the book is to enlighten ordinary readers about the legal issues that come up on a daily basis.
In this book we have included articles on contemporary legal issues, e.g. women’s rights, rights of the third gender, rights of the indigenous people, freedom of expression in the cyber world, labour rights and workplace safety, vesting of power of impeachment of Supreme Court Judges to the parliament, right to information, prison and police reform and many more.
Articles on some of the most renowned law schools in Bangladesh, e.g. Dhaka University Law Faculty, Rajshahi University Law Department and Jagannath University Law Department are also included in the book. These articles will provide a clear picture of legal education in Bangladesh.
Some of the articles will offer useful legal information that the ordinary citizen needs to know on a day to day basis, e.g. laws relating to registration of deeds, how to execute an affidavit, how to notarise a document, how to open a company, etc.About the editor
