Accessing the courts as journalists

In this episode of the DAKSH Podcast, Leah Verghese spoke to Apurva Vishwanath about court reporting. The courts are forbidding institutions with complex procedures. Often regular citizens can access the courts only through what is reported through the media. In this episode, Apurva discussed how she became a legal journalist, the challenges with legal reporting in India and live tweeting.
