DIMAPUR — In pursuant to its objective of conducting lecture series on various aspects of law, Kohima Bar Association (KBA) organised its first lecture on the topic “Overview of the application of central laws in Nagaland with emphasis on the development and interplay of CPC and CrPC vis-à-vis the rules for the administration of justice and police in Nagaland 1937” held in the conference hall of the deputy commissioner’s office on June 27.

An update from KBA stated that the lecture was delivered by R Iralu, senior advocate of Gauhati High Court, Kohima Bench.

It stated that the lecture dwelt on various central laws applicable in Nagaland prior to and post its statehood. It especially dwelt on how and in what manner civil and criminal justice have been administered in Nagaland under the Rules for the Administration of Justice and Police in Nagaland 1937 (the rules) during British India and how the same was developed by judicial and legislative actions till present by the application of CPC and CrPC.

Report stated that the speaker has emphasised on the need and importance of the separation of judiciary from the executive and highlighted on the dangers of executive officers taking up purely judicial matters on the civil side without any legal background and judicial training. It added that the need to do away with the rules on the civil side either by an appropriate amendment/ repeal or through the implementation of the civil courts act was also touched upon.

The speaker further emphasised on the need for the government to be more legally proactive so as to assimilate with the mainstream and highlighted that the state was much behind other Northeastern states in the progress of law.

The lecture was followed by a series of questions posed by the attending advocates.
