I am pleased to welcome Vinay Sitapati, who joins us as a contributor from today. Vinay Sitapati works on the editorial board of The Indian Express, New Delhi. He writes and reports on law and politics. He is no stranger to us, having written a guest post earlier on Binayak Sen. As a print journalist myself, I have found LAOT useful to think about writing an article as well as reflect on the subject after it is published, benefitting immensely from erudite comments from our readers and co-contributors. I am sure Vinay too will find LAOT filling a void in legal scholarship as well as in media’s coverage of contemporary issues. I wish him active blogging ahead.
