Krishna Iyer Lectures

Justice V. R. Krishna Iyer (15 November 1914 – 4 December 2014) referred to as a conscience keeper of justice in India, was a visionary and a pathbreaking judge, who reformed the Indian criminal justice system with bold changes to jails & police stations, and forged new tools to dispense social justice & justice in the public interest. He stood up for the poor and the underprivileged, and remained a human rights champion, a crusader for social justice and the environment, and a doyen of civil liberties, throughout his life. He was also a sports enthusiast and a prolific author. He was conferred with the Padma Vibhushan in 1999.As Judge, he had two superlative qualities – closely akin to his English counter-part Lord Denning – an original and innovative mind and a compassionate heart.
