"I realise that some of my criticisms may be mistaken; but to refuse to criticize judgements for fear of being mistaken is to abandon criticism altogether... If any of my criticisms are found to be correct, the cause is served; and if any are found to be incorrect the very process of finding out my mistakes must lead to the discovery of the right reasons, or better reasons than I have been able to give, and the cause is served just as well."

-Mr. HM Seervai, Preface to the 1st ed., Constitutional Law of India.

Are National Law Schools/ Universities Hegemons?

The Law department of Delhi University has published its course contents and case material in its website http://www.du.ac.in/llb-prog.html. Why can't the National Law Schools/ Universities do the same? Why can't they atleast publish the reading list so that Non-National Law School/ University students can also use them? When India talks about Knowledge, Intellectual Property and Hegemony, why do the National Law Schools/ Universities do this?
