Georgia State University College of Law Conference Center
85 Park Place NE, Atlanta, Georgia 30303

Free and open to the community.
No RSVP required.
Featuring Dr. Aman M. Hingorani and Professor Clark D. Cunningham.
In 1979 a small law firm comprised of Kapila and Nirmal Hingorani revolutionized the legal system of India by filing a petition directly in the Supreme Court of India challenging the widespread practice of pretrial detention for periods longer than the maximum possible sentence for the charged offense. Originally focused on one notorious jail in the State of Bihar, they persuaded the Court to expand the case nationwide, with the result that over 30,000 prisoners were released in less than nine months. The Hingorani firm followed up on the momentum of this success to file dozens of other cases in the Supreme Court seeking immediate relief on behalf of mental health inmates, leper patients, industrial workers and other disadvantaged groups.  Over the next five years, the avalanche of this new kind of litigation prompted the Supreme Court to develop a number of innovative procedures designed to allow lay people seeking to enforce constitutional rights to access the Supreme Court directly without legal counsel (e.g. accepting a letter with an attached newspaper article as a filed petition), for expedited factual investigation by neutral experts appointed by the Court at no cost to petitioners, and issuance of interim orders granting significant relief within months of filing. This new active role of promoting social justice for the disadvantaged greatly enhanced the Court’s role in Indian society; in 1996 the Wall Street Journal carried a front page story with the headline “India’s Supreme Court Makes Rule of Law a Way of Governing.” Dr. Aman Hingorani has continued his parents’ work, filing his first public interest petition in court while still a law student. He is a Trustee of the Kapila & Nirmal Hingorani Foundation, established as a public charitable trust to carry forward their pioneering initiatives in the fields of public interest law, human rights, access to justice, legal education and related areas: http://knhfoundation.in/

No RSVP required.
Featuring Dr. Aman M. Hingorani
Dr. Hingorani will summarize his recent book, Unravelling the Kashmir Knot, which argues that the way forward on the Kashmir issue is to depoliticize it by subjecting the issues to a legal analysis. A confirmation of the correct legal position by the International Court of Justice will help remove the ‘disputed territory’ tag on Kashmir and alter the current political discourse on this issue, so necessary for a just resolution. This is what the book does with the help of comprehensive analysis of UN papers, political observer reports and international law.

Dr. Aman M. Hingorani (LL.M. Warwick, Ph.D. Delhi) is a lawyer and mediator practicing in the  Supreme Court of India and the High Court of Delhi, and a Trustee of the Kapila & Nirmal Hingorani Foundation.  Professor Clark D. Cunningham holds the W. Lee Burge Chair in Law & Ethics, Georgia State College of Law, and has written extensively about the legal system of India.
