Book Review: Alladi Memorial Lecture
N. R. Madhava Menon, The Hindu, December 2009
Alladi Memorial Lecture is collection of essays on Constitutional law and related matters by eminent jurists and academicians.
Anyone familiar with the debates in the Constituent Assembly cannot forget the scholarly and lawyer-like interventions of Dr. Alladi Krishnaswamy which settled many propositions of the draft Constitution that created differences among the members. Such was his scholarship in Constitutional matters that Chief Justice of India Hidayatullah wrote of him, “…no lawyer in India, then or since, has made a greater impression on me than Dr. Alladi.” This book is a collection of essays on Constitutional law and related matters by some of the eminent jurists and academicians of the country based on lectures they had delivered under the auspices of the Alladi Memorial Trust.
