The first video series of its kind in India – presented every Monday between 9th November 2020 and 1st February 2021 and published by Livelaw – were delivered by lawyers, legal scholars and judges who knew civil liberties advocate K.G. Kannabiran (1929-2010) personally and worked with him on cases, campaigns and tribunals, to remember their collaborations with him. The lectures, archived in a dedicated YouTube channel, reflect on future pathways of this important slice of the history of lawyering for human rights and civil liberties, and the legal profession — rooted in the Indian experience.
