The call for chapter is for contributions in an edited Book on the theme “Criminal Justice Administration: Challenges in Law & Procedure”.

The essential object of criminal law is to protect society against criminals and law-breakers. For this purpose the law holds out threats of punishments to prospective lawbreakers as well as attempts to make the actual offenders suffer the prescribed punishments for their crimes. Therefore, criminal law, in its wider sense, consists of both the substantive criminal law and the procedural (or adjective) criminal law. Substantive criminal law defines offences and prescribes punishments for the same, while the procedural law administers the substantive law.

Therefore the two main statues which deals with administration of criminal cases in our country are criminal procedure code i.e. CrPC and Indian Penal Code i.e. IPC being procedural and substantive respectively. However with the changing times the societal norms also change and people who are part of this society have to accept this change either by way of compromise or any other way in order to adjust and make them still the part of the very same society. However, there is huge gap between the procedure prescribed under law and the actions actually undertaken in practice. Therefore, this Book would be an endeavour to identify all those lacunas and contribute towards much needed reforms in the administration of the Crinimal Justice System.

  • Need to address the gaps
