Therefore, ever since the dawn of our civilization, persons in power have always tried to supervise or control education. It has been handmaid of the ruling class. During the Christian era, the ecclesiastics controlled the institution of education and diffused among the people the gospel of the Bible and religious teachings. These gospels and teachings were no other than a philosophy for the maintenance of the existing society. It taught the poor man to be meek and to earn his bread with the sweat of his brow, while the priests and the landlords lived in luxury and fought duels for the slightest offence. During the Renaissance, education passed more from the clutches of the priest into the hands of the prince. In other words, it become more secular. Under the control of the monarch, education began to devise and preach the infallibility of its masters, the monarch or king. It also invented and supported fantastic theories like “The Divine Right Theory” and that the king can do no wrong, etc. with the advent of the industrial revolution, education took a different turn and had to please the new masters. It now no longer remainders the privilege of the baron class, but was thrown open to the new rich merchant class of the society. The philosophy which was in vogue during this period was that of “Laissez Faire” restricting the function of the state to a mere keeping of laws and order while on the other hand, in practice the law of the jungle prevailed in the form of free competition and the survival of the fittest. 1.What does the theory “Divine Right of King” stipulate?

Each question consists of legal propositions/ principles (hereinafter referred to as ‘Principle’) and facts. These principles have to be applied to the given facts to arrive at the most reasonable conclusion. Such principles may or may not be true in the real sense, yet you have to conclusively assume them to be true for the purposes of this section. In other words, in answering the following questions, you must not rely on any principles except the principles that are given herein below for every question. Further you must not assume any facts other than stated in the question. The objective of this section is to test your interest towards study of law, research aptitude and problem solving ability even if the “most reasonable conclusion” arrived at may be unacceptable for any other reason.

But this promise will become legally binding only when the acceptance of the offer is unconditional.

Slide16:

Facts: Ram makes an offer to sell his house to Shyam for Rs. 50lacs. Shyam accepts this offer but wants to pay the price of the house in five quarterly installments. Ram does not agree to it. Thereafter Shyam agrees to pay the price of the house in the way as originally desired by Ram. But Ram does not reply to it. Can Shyam compel Ram to sell his house to him? Shyam can compel Ram to sell his house because Shyam ultimately agrees to pay the price as originally desired by Ram Shyam can compel Ram to sell his house because Shyam in the first instance substantially complied with the desire of Ram Shyam can compel Ram to sell his house because Ram’s offer does not exclude the payment of price in installments Shyam cannot compel Ram to sell his house because Shyam imposes a new condition about payment of price of the house while accepting the offer which is not ultimately accepted by Ram 152. Principle: Generally an agreement without consideration is not valid. Therefore, in order to make a valid agreement, some consideration which may have some value in the eyes of law, is essentially required. Facts: William has an old car of which he makes seldom use. He voluntarily enters into an agreement with Smith to sell this car for rupees ten thousand. Thereafter one Anson approaches William and offers to buy that car for rupees one lac as the car was one which Anson has been searching for long. Now William wants to cancel his agreement with Smith and refuses to deliver the car to him saying that consideration (price) for the car promised by Smith is negligible and therefore, agreement with him cannot be said to be valid one. William can cancel his agreement with Smith as the consideration involved in that is really inadequate William cannot cancel his agreement with Smith as the sale of car for rupees ten thousand was voluntary and this price has some value in the eyes of law William can cancel his agreement with Smith as he was ignorant about the value/ price of the car for which it could be sold William can cancel his agreement with Smith as he is entitle to get full market value/ price of his car 153. Principle: In order to be eligible to appear in semester examination, a student is required to attend, under all circumstance, at least 70% of the total classes held in that semester as per University rules. Facts: Anand, an economically poor but a very brilliant student of LL.B. final semester, while going to his University by cycle received some leg injuries in road accident. Consequently Anand could not attend his classes for one week advised rest by his doctor for that period. Due to this absence from the University. Anand failed to have 70% attendance essential to appear in the examination and therefore he was debarred from appearing in the examination by the University authorities. Anand challenges this decision in the court of law. Anand will succeed in the court of law as the accident was beyond his control Anand will definitely get favour of the court on humanitarian ground as he comes from a economically poor family and may not afford to take readmission Anand will not succeed as he could very easily fulfill eligibility criteria for appearing in the examination by being reasonably regular in the class throughout the semester Anand will succeed as requirement of 70% attendance may be declared arbitrary and, therefore unreasonable by the court of law 154. Principle: A seller of goods cannot transfer better rights than he himself possesses in the goods sold to the buyer. Facts: Komal leaves his watch by mistake on a seat in the park. Sonal finds that watch and immediately sells the same for good price to Monal who without inquiring when Sonal is its owner or not. Komal later on claims that watch from Monal. Decide whether Komal can succeed. Komal cannot succeed as Monal has paid good price of the watch Komal cannot succeed as Monal is owner of the fact that Sonal is not itsowner Komal cannot succeed as it was his carelessness and nothing else which enabled Sonal to sell the watch to Monal 16

Slide17:

(d) Komal can succeed as Sonal is merely finder of the watch and therefore, cannot transfer ownership rights thereon to Monal 155. Principle: All citizens shall have the Fundamental right to carry on any occupation, trade or business. But reasonable restrictions on the exercise of such rights can be imposed by law in the interest of the general public. Facts: A large number of persons had been carrying on the business of dyeing and printing in Rajkot area for the last 25 years providing employment to about 30000 families. From these business places untreated dirty water was being discharged on the roads there by causing damage to the public health. A notice, therefore was given to close this business till necessary measures to protect public health as provided under the environmental statutes were taken by those business men. Notice cannot be justified as it will cause loss of employment to 30000 families Notice cannot be justified as it amounts to violation of the Fundamental right of the persons who have been carrying on the business for the last 25 years The notice cannot be justified on the ground of damage to public health as the persons in that area have been voluntarily residing for long and have become used to that environment The notice can be justified as that right to business is not absolute and reasonable restriction can be imposed by law in the interest of the public 156. Principle: A contract cannot be enforced by or against a person who is not a party to it. However, where some benefit is conferred on third party by the contract itself, there third party can be allowed to enforce that contract to get such benefit. Facts: Dinesh is liable to pay Rs. 50,000/- to Suresh. In order to discharge this liability Dinesh enters into a contract with Ramesh by which Dinesh sells his car to Ramesh for Rs. 1lac. Ramesh takes the delivery of the car and promises/assures to pay its price at the earliest. Dinesh separately informs Suresh about this contract for his satisfaction. Ramesh fails to pay the car’s price. Suresh wants to join Dinesh in filing suit against Ramesh for the recovery of price of the car. Whether Suresh is entitled to do so? Suresh is entitled to do so because the contract was made for his benefit Suresh is entitled to do so because Dinesh is liable to him and discharged of this liability depends upon the payment of the price of the car by Ramesh Suresh is not entitled to do so because liability of Dinesh does not depend upon any assurance of Ramesh Suresh is not entitled to do so because he is not a party to the contract between Dinesh and Ramesh 157. Principle: If a contract is made by post between two persons living in two different cities, then the contract is said to be complete as soon as the letter of acceptance is properly posted, and the place of completion of the contract is that city where acceptance is posted. It is worth mentioning here that in every contract there is always an offer from one party and the acceptance of the offer from the other party. Facts: Sani, a resident of Patna, gives an offer by post to sell his house for Rs. 25lacs to Hani, a resident of Allahabad. This offer letter is posted on 1 st January 2013 from Patna and reaches Allahabad on 7 th January 2013. Hani accepts this offer and posts the letter of acceptance on 8 th January 2013 from Allahabad which reaches Patna on 16 th January 2013. But Sani presuming that Hani is not interested in accepting his offer sells his house to Gani at same price on 15 th of January 2013. Hani files a suit against Sani for the breach of contract in the competent court of Allahabad. Whether Hani will succeed? Hani cannot succeed as Sani cannot be compelled by law to wait for the answer from Hani for an indefinite period of time Hani cannot succeed as he could use some other effective and speedy mode for communicating his acceptance in minimum possible time Hani can succeed as he properly posted the latter of acceptance and the delay was beyond his control Hani can succeed as control become complete in the eyes of law on the date of posting the letter of acceptance 158. Principle: He, who goes to the court of law to seek justice, must come with clean hands. Facts: P enters into a contract with S under which S has to construct a house for P and has to complete the same within one year from the date of the contract. This contract includes two very important terms. 17

Slide18:

According to first term if there is price hike of the materials to be used in the construction, then the escalation charges at a particular rate shall be payable by P to S. According to second term if the construction of the house is not completed within the period prescribed for it, then S will have to pay penalty at a particular rate to P. before the completion of the construction work the workers of S go on strike and strike continues up to three months even after the expiry of one year. After that period, the workers return and the construction work again starts. During the last three months period of strike there was a considerable rise in the price of the building material. S claimed escalation cost from P. P did not agree to it. S filed a suit in the court of law either to order the payment of the price of the building material on the basis of escalated price or to allow him to stop the work without incurring any penal liability towards P. S will succeed as strike by his workers was unexpected and beyond his control S can succeed as there is an escalation clause in the contract S cannot succeed as he has failed to complete the construction work in time and strike cannot be treated as a valid excuse for delay in work S can succeed if he pays penalty to P for delay 159. Principle: If the object of an agreement is or becomes unlawful or immoral or opposed to public policy in the eyes of law, then the courts will not enforce such agreements. Law generally prohibits Child labour. Facts: P enters into an agreement with T by which P has to let his house to T for two years and T has to pay Rs. 20, 000.00 per month to P as rent. T starts a child care center in that house. But after some time in order to earn some money for the maintenance of the center, T starts sending the children of the center on the rotation basis to work for four hour a day in some nearby chemical and hazardous factories. When P comes to know about this new development, he asks T either to stop the children from working in factories or to leave his house immediately. T neither agrees to leave the house nor to stop the children from working in the factories. P files a suit in the court of law for appropriate relief/action. P cannot succeed as the agreement was for the two years and it cannot be terminated before the expiry of that period P cannot succeed as the object at the time of making of the agreement was not clear P will succeed as the object of the agreement has become unlawful P will not succeed if T agrees to share the wages of the children with P 160. Principle: Whosoever by his act or omission causes environmental pollution shall be held liable for any loss caused by such pollution. It shall be no defence in such cases that all due diligence or reasonable care was taken while carrying out the act or omission in question. Facts: Hari is carrying on a chemical and fertilizer industry near a bank of a river. In order to prevent and control any kind of harm to the environment, suitable waste treatment and disposal plants were installed in the factory. Due to some sudden mechanical/technical problem, these plants ceased to work properly and, therefore caused environmental pollution, which ultimately caused substantial harm to the environment and to the people living around the factory. Victims of such pollution file a suit for suitable remedy. Victims cannot succeed as necessary precautions to prevent any harm were taken by Hari Victims cannot succeed as the mechanical/technical problem was sudden and, therefore, beyond the control of Hari Victims can succeed as it is the duty of Hari to see that no harm is caused to the environment/people due to his activity under any circumstances Victims could succeed if treatment/disposal plant were not installed in the factory 161. Principle: If a person transfers movable property with its full ownership and without any consideration to some other person, then it is called a gift. Facts: S, who has no child of his own, makes a gift of his house worth Rs. 25lacs to his nephew R. after completing all the legal formalities required for a valid gift, S says to R that in case of need R will provide that house to S for use without any questions. R does not react to it. After one year of this gift, S really needs that house and request R to make the house available to him, but R refuses to do so. R Cannot refuses as he got the house without paying any consideration for that R cannot refuses as S is without children (c) R can refuses as he has become full owner of the house 18

Slide19:

(d) R can refuses as he himself may be in need of that house 162. Principle: An agreement to do an act impossible in itself cannot be enforced by a court of law. Facts: Ramesh agrees with his girl friend Shilpa to pluck stars from the sky through his extraordinary will power, and bring them down on earth for her within a week. After the expiry of one week, Shilpa filed a suit for damages against Ramesh for the breach of contract as Ramesh failed to perform his promise. Shilpa can succeed in getting damages as Ramesh has deceived her Ramesh cannot be held liable as he honestly believes that his love for Shilpa is true and, therefore, he will succeed in his Endeavour The court cannot entertain such suits as the act promised under the agreement is impossible in itself Ramesh can be held liable for making an absurd promise 163. Principle: An agreement may be oral or written. However, if a law specifically requires that an agreement must be in written then the agreement must be in written. A law specifically requires that the agreements relating to transfer of the copyright in novel between an author of a novel and the producer of a motion picture must be in writing. Facts: The author of a novel, Love at Lost Sight, had several rounds of discussion with a producer of motion picture regarding making of a motion picture based on Love at Lost Sight. During the last discussion, they decided to make a motion picture on Love at Lost Sight. The producer made a motion picture on Love Lost at Sight after making a payment of Rs. 10, 00, 000 (Ten Lac only) in cash to the author who happily accepted this amount as full and final payment. Later on, on the advice of his lawyer, the author brought a case in a court of law against the producer on the ground that there is no written agreement between the producer and him. party, the contract is enforceable only at the option of the party whose will was so dominated. 19 The author cannot succeed in the case as he has given his consent to the agreement (a) The author is likely to succeed in the case as the agreement is not in accordance with the law (b) (c) The author is not likely to succeed in the case because he has given already accepted the amount of Rs. 10, 00, 000 as full and final payment (d) The author can succeed in the case as the consideration is not adequate 164. Principle: A person is said to be of sound mind for the purpose of making a contract if, at the time when he makes it, he is capable of understanding it and of forming a rational judgment as to its effect upon his interest. Facts: X who is usually of sound mind, but occasionally of unsound mind enters into a contract with Y when he (X) is of unsound mind. Y came to know about this fact afterwards and now wants to file a suit against X. X cannot enter into contract because he is of unsound mind when he entered into contract X can enter into contract but the burden is on the other party to prove that he was of unsound mind at the time of contract X can enter into contract but the burden is on X to prove that he was of sound mind at the time of contract None of these 165. Principle: Whosoever commits act forbidden by the Indian Penal Code with a view to obtain the consent of any person to enter into agreement, he cannot get the agreement enforced by law but the person whose consent has been so obtain may get the agreement enforced by law. The Indian Penal Code defines various offences and prescribes punishments there for. Facts: A obtains the consent of B to enter into an agreement by an act amounting to criminal intimidation under the Indian Penal Code. A brings a case against B for performance of agreement. A will succeed in the case A may succeed in the case B will succeed in the case B will not succeed in the case 166.

When Shyam became major, his father Ram misused his parental position and entered into an agreement with Shyam and obtained a bond from him for a sum of Rs. 30, 000 in respect of the advance. The agreement is enforceable against Shyam only for Rs. 10, 000, the actual amount of money advanced to him The agreement is enforceable against Shyam for Rs. 30, 000 because he has signed the bond The agreement is enforceable against Shyam he was major at the time of agreement The agreement is not enforceable against Shyam because Ram has misused his position as father to obtain as unfair advantage 167. Principle: When at the desire of one person, any other person has done or abstained from doing something, such act or abstinence or promise is called a consideration for the promise. Only a promise coupled with consideration is enforceable by law. Facts: X, the uncle of Y, made a promise to pay him an amount of Rs. 10,000 as reward if Y quits smoking and drinking within one year. X also deposited the above mentioned amount in a bank and informed Y that the said amount will be paid to him if he quits smoking and drinking within one year. Within a period of six months of making the promise X died. After the expiry of one year of making the promise by X, Y made a request to the legal heirs of X demanding the promised money. The legal heirs of X declined the request of Y. The promise of X to Y is enforceable by law because Y has quitted smoking and drinking The promise of X to Y is not enforceable by law because Y has benefitting smoking and drinking The promise of X to Y is enforceable by law because the amount of Rs. 10, 000 has been deposited in a bank The promise of X to Y is enforceable by law because X has died within a period of six months of making the promise 168.

Ten Lacs from the Government 170. Principle: Licence is an agreement whereby the owner of the copyright agrees to grant an interest in the copyright to the licence. Assignment is an agreement whereby the owner of the copyright transfers all the property rights to the assignee. Property right is a bundle of rights consisting of right to possess, right to use, right to alienate and the right to exclude others. Facts: A, an owner of copyright in a cinematographic film enters into an agreement with B, a film distributor. B agrees to distribute the film only in Mumbai.

Principle: Words describing quality of things cannot be registered as trade mark. However, such words may be registered as trade mark if they acquire a secondary meaning. Words acquire secondary meaning when people start associating the descriptive words with a person specific. Facts: A hatchery located in Raipur is owned by ‘X’. X has been using the slogan “new laid eggs sold here” since 1970 to describe the quality of eggs sold in his hatchery. Over a period of time because of continuous use of this slogan, people started associating this slogan with X. X filed an application for registration of the words “new laid eggs” as trade mark in the year 1970. The words will be registered as trade mark The words will not be registered as trade mark The words may be registered as trade mark The words may not be registered as trade mark 173. Principle: Whoever takes away anything from the land of any person without that person’s consent is said to commit theft.

Principle: Res ipsa loquitur i. e. the thing speaks for itself. Facts: Seema got herself operated for the removal of her uterus in the defendant’s hospital, as there was diagnosed to be a cyst in one of her ovaries. Due the negligence of the surgeon, who performed the operation, abdominal pack was left in her abdomen. The same was removed by a second surgery. Surgeon cannot be held responsible because it is merely a human error Surgeon can be held responsible but Seema will have to prove in the court of law that the surgeon was grossly negligent Surgeon will be responsible and Seema need not to prove surgeon’s negligence because presence of abdominal pack in her abdomen is sufficient proof therefore None of the above 175. Principle : Whoever takes away with him any minor person less than sixteen years of age if a male, or less than eighteen years of age if a female out of the keeping of parents of such minor person without the consent of such parent, is said to kidnap such minor person.

Facts: A sells to B a horse which A knows to be of unsound mind. B says to A that if A does not say anything about the state of mind of horse, then B shall presume that the horse is of sound mind. A says

Slide23:

A has committed fraud A has committed misrepresentation There cannot be a fraud because A says nothing about the mental condition of the horse There cannot be a fraud because B did not ask A whether the horse is of sound mind 182. Principle: Whoever by words, either spoken or written brings or attempts bring into hatred or contempt, or attempts to excite disaffection towards the Government established by law in India shall be punished. However, comments expressing disapprobation of the administrative or other action of the Government without exciting or attempting to excite hatred, contempt or disaffection, do not constitute an offence.
