Pronounced political philosopher, Thomas Hobbes once stated that ignorance of the law was not a good excuse since everyone is bound to take notice of the laws so subjected. If ignorance of law is no excuse, then is every person supposed to graduate out of law schools? No, the acuity of the principle “ignorantia juris nonexcusat “lies in the fact that the acts which constitute a crime should be known to everyone alike and should be profoundly set out in the law. Therefore, if there is no text stating a prescribed penalty for a particular act, the judge cannot consider that act as a crime. Continue reading…..

William E. Gladstone once said in a public gathering that ‘justice delayed is justice denied.’ But neither the person nor the concept was new to the anxious crowd. Regarding the person, Mr. Gladstone has served as the Prime Minister of United Kingdom more times than any anyone else. And regarding the phrase, the cumbersome process and delay in obtaining judgments have been an age-old issue in the litigation arena. Both the former and the latter had an enduring effect on the minds of the crowd present at that gathering.
Since we all know the reason of the former, let’s try and understand the importance of the term ‘justice delayed is justice denied.’ It is not because courts do not provide equitable judgments or fail to exercise its authority to implement the rights of the people. But it is due to the time taken by the courts to pronounce these equitable judgments to enforce the rights of the citizens. Therefore, even a fair and just decision from the court may deny a party of his right due to the procedural delay in adjudication.
