Law, Development and Socio-Economic and Policy Challenges in 21st Century India, is a collection of essays on topics that are hotly- debated across the world, that are areas of concern for most countries and that touch individual lives at some level or the other. These scholarly papers emphasize that law is interdisciplinary and is needed to address issues in the field of environment, international relations, science and technology, gender, banking and economy. The idea behind this compilation of essays is to highlight issues and to explore them in a legal perspective.
The book is divided into five parts, each dealing with a separate topic. Every essay in the book deals with legal challenges and opportunities, lacunae in the existing system and tries to offer solutions to overcome the same.
