  • Rajesh Chaturvedi  - Compliments to Hanumant
    Dear Hanumant,
    I am a criminal lawyer.I have passed out LLB in 1987. I have gone through your study material. It is really nice and one piece item of its kind. your effort is admirable. But I would like to s***est you to incorporate new verdict of supreme court atleast. I can help you in this connection. I am regular visitor of NIC/Judis in the search of cases. Beside this there are many more free/paid private sites also. But in my opinion the NIC is the best.
    I hope you will not take my advice otherwise.

    Respected Hanumant ji,

    My case was on board on 10 th of this month and was going to submit the compromise pursis. We went to court at 12 noon with compromise pursis but court had decreed the suit as dismissal,partly allowing it by giving me some paltry money.
    We have given application to set aside that decree under section 151 and try the suit in the light of compromise.We have also kept compromise pursis on record.
    Now court is asking for case law, and if it is provided then is ready to set aside it's order.
    Please advise how to proceed,and s***est if there is any case law.

  • Taneer Raj  - The Story Behind the notes of LLB

    The notes, which is provided by Hanumant's Law Journal is actually prepared with intention of how to answers the questions in point wise, where the subject knowledge is minimized.

    My s***estions:

    1. Follow the notes (Hanumant's Law Journal) to score high marks in the exams with minimal effort. It is the excellent material to prepare any “University Exams” in INDIA.

    2. Follow your respective University Lectures or Books thoroughly to maximize the knowledge of law, which will help you to settle as “Successful Lawyer”

    By following s***estion #1 – you score high in “Student Life”.
    By following s***estion #2 – you rank high in “Professional Life”.

    If you follow both, THE GENIUS LIFE is ahead.

    Thanking you - Hanumant's Law Journal.

    Taneer Raj,
