Our SLP Expertise

What is a Special Leave Petition?

A Special Leave Petition (SLP) is a unique legal instrument through which appeals against judgments or orders from lower courts are allowed to be heard by the Supreme Court. This discretionary power, granted under Article 136 of the Constitution of India, is utilized as a means for addressing substantial legal questions or rectifying potential miscarriages of justice. An SLP serves as an important avenue for justice to be sought by parties when traditional appeal mechanisms have either been exhausted or are unavailable.
