This Article provides a comprehensive review of Indian law for 2017. It does not include a citation to every case related to Indian law issued by the courts but tries to incorporate the majority of opinions into its catalog to provide a robust discussion of the changes in Indian law over the course of 2017. Part I of this Article provides some general statistics about Indian law in 2017. Part II focuses on activity at the U.S. Supreme Court, which is the most watched forum for Indian law cases for obvious reasons. Part III groups cases by subject area and arranges those subject areas alphabetically. The goal of such an organization is to provide easier access to new, relevant materials for readers who may be specifically interested in a certain area of Indian law. Part IV covers some other developments often touched on by just one or two cases the entire year, but they are included in this Article for purposes of completeness. Finally, the Conclusion provides just a few short concluding remarks.
