In India, Judges of the Supreme Court. the apex court in the country, have been subjected to detailed studies by various authors, Even though it is the High Courts which play a crucial role, in terms of the Constitution, in the judicial architecture of the country, the Judges of the High Courts have not been subjected to rigorous analysis. The book embarks on a qualitative analysis of the more than 600 Judges of these Courts, spread across the states of India.
