This is a crucial concept, for legal gk as well as legal reasoning. jurisdiction is the power of the court to try a case, or entertain a matter. this word can also be used in another sense, to indicate the area of power of any person/authority. for example, matters of homeland security is not within the jurisdiction of the chief-of-staff of the army. it is within the jurisdiction of the home ministry.
in case of courts, there can be different types of… Continue

When I got the last years paper in my hand, I just turned over to the Legal GK section and got a shock of sorts. Well, 2010 paper is a new ballgame, and would not be set by the same set of examiners. But still, is there any identifiable trend in the question paper that can be expected to be followed in future? I think there are, about two of them.
1. lifting questions from commercial books - Well, those who gave the paper had already said this, but only after looking at the paper I… Continue

question no 123 in last years paper talks about perfect and imperfect rights, and one has to essentially identify whether time barred debt is imperfect or perfect right. I shall quote a English judgment which may help you in understanding:
"A perfect right is one which corresponds to a perfect duty; and a perfect duty is one which is not merely recognised by the law, but enforced. A duty is enforceable when an action or other legal proceeding, civil or criminal, will lie for the… Continue

It's been a year now since the incident which has been dubbed as the biggest terror strike since 9/11, claimed the lives of some 150 odd men and women including the 9 perpetrators. The aftermath of 26/11 is even more unfortunate than the incident itself. Even after a year we are struggling to find solutions beyond Candlelight vigils and government resignations. It's ironic how 10 men with guns and a year's worth of training, supposedly in a pakistani millitant camp can do to an emerging… Continue

It is very important to study the past years papers to understand how questions are framed by paper setters. CLAT 2008 paper was set by NLSIU bangalore, and was a good and balanced paper. It had a very significant GK section, but noticeably, the theme was current affairs. Questions asked on static GK were minimal and mostly had some connection with current affairs.
Who is a Taikonaut? A chinese astronaut. Is this a current affairs questions? Not if you go by the book, but if you take… Continue
