Bail as a Tool for Speedy Justice


Bail serves as the first instance of relief that can be granted to an accused or arrested person. It is the foremost question that comes up for consideration before a Court. Thus, lawyers need to be highly effective in obtaining bail for their clients. The aim is to avoid any more time in jail than is absolutely necessary. Lawyers need to be so well equipped with the finer nuances of bail procedure, conditions, considerations and practical applications that the second question to be addressed by the Court should invariably be the amount of bail to be set for the release of their clients.

However, this is not an easy task. There are as many types of bail in our system as there are natures of offences. The guidelines governing them also differ based on the facts and circumstances of each case. This course aims at bypassing the system of trial and error and the need for years of experience to be a skilled defence lawyer. It highlights practical problems in the application of the law on Bail and provides solutions by way of case studies. It is structured to enable the course taker to effectively use bail as a tool to obtain speedy relief for a client and, consequently, further his career as a criminal defence attorney by leaps and bounds.
