Season 1

Friend of the Court is a podcast series that explores groundbreaking constitutional cases in India’s judicial history against their political and social contexts.


Over eight episodes, the series forensically reconstructs three major cases that senior advocate and constitutional expert, Anil Divan argued: the Jain Hawala Diaries, the Cauvery River Water Dispute and the National Judicial Appointments Commission cases. For the first time, these courtroom sagas have been pieced together in a narrative podcast, drawing on documents, news clips and fresh interviews with those who were involved in these battles. It uses Divan’s cases as a jumping off point to understand how legal battles are shaped and the legacies they leave. 


The series will be launched on 31st October 2022 and further episodes will be released weekly on every Monday. The show will be available on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Jio Saavn, Gaana and all other major platforms.
