Born back in 1915 in northern Kerala and educated in Annamalai and Madras Universities, Krishna lyer practised law and involved himself in the defense of peasants and workers. He was elected initially to the Madras Legislative Assembly and later, after re organization of States, to the Kerala Assembly, where he shone as Minister in charge of important portfolios like Home, Law, Social Welfare, Electricity and Irrigation.
Appointed Judge of the Kerala High Court in July 1968 and as Member of the Indian Law Commission two years thereafter, he demonstrated his tremendous capacity to relate law to social needs and social justice. The Supreme Court of India beckoned him in 1973 and then followed an era of judicial activism, public interest litigation, affirmative action through Courts and a wide-ranging exercise of Judicial review for which the Indian Judiciary is today well known throughout the world. Though his tenure in the Apex Court was relatively short, he left an indelible impression in the public mind on the nature and scope of judicial power which continues to inspire lawyers and judges both within the country and outside.
Author of innumerable books and articles and leading in ember of several social organizations and professional bodies he has been honored by several coveted awards, degrees honors cause and high distinctions. Suffice it to say that there is no Indian Judge till date, living or dead, on whom three doctoral theses have been written by scholars in three different Universities. Mr. Justice V.R. Krishna Iyer has that distinction.
