On 10th April, the Supreme Court ruled that it would take leaked documents on the record in the Rafale Fighter Jet Deal case, despite the State's objections that this has the potential to harm national security.
In this worksheet, students are tasked with understanding why the Rafale Deal required the intervention of the Supreme Court. By analyzing the key components of the case, the students are challenged to identify the key issues that were settled by the Court and central reasoning the Supreme Court justices used to arrive at their judgment.
Ideally, students should complete this worksheet in a classroom setting. Teachers should introduce the worksheet by first introducing the larger societal issue, which led to a case being filed before the Supreme Court. After answering each question, the class should engage in a critical discussion, which will give students the opportunity to both clarify any doubts they might have and, further, voice their own opinions.
The worksheet is designed for students of law, who have completed a minimum of 1 year of their studies.
