Profile of Union Minister for Law and Justice: Past and the Present

Here are some links to the profiles of the new Union Law Minister, M.Veerappa Moily.

*His profile as carried in the Administrative Reforms Commmission's site.

*This profile appeared in September 2008 in Business Standard.

*2004 profile, seeking votes.

*2006 interview to The Hindu

* *A profile found in engagevoter.com

*Interview to Karan Thapar in 2006. Another interview to Thapar in 2008.

*His remarks soon after taking charge as Law Minister.

*HIGHLIGHT: It is perhaps the first time in several years (recent history) that the Union Law Minister will not have a Minister of State. Remember who was the last Minister of State in the Law Ministry? Why have one, if none of the earlier MoS could leave an imprint?
Moily's promise to deliver on judicial reforms could well be trusted. A review of his promise and performance in office must await the completion of first 100 days, which will be September 10.

Mr Veerappa Moily as the Law minister is a case of high irony for this ordinary citizen. His appointment jogs my memory about this (the JMM bribery case):

Also to be noted for law school students...
he was instrumental in the setting up of the NLSIU and encouraged the setting up of NALSAR and NUJS...
