The Research Work mainly talks about the History of the Judicial System in India and how did it evolved and talks about the evolution and transformation by the British Officials in the Indian Judicial System. The Research Work mainly focuses on the evolution of Civil Laws, Criminal Laws and Personal Laws during the time of the British in India and how they implemented their own policies through these laws and used to govern the British India (British India has been used in the preface because earlier India was a part of the British and did not have its own independent judicial laws.) Still Indian Judicial System works on the principles and laws which were formed by the British Officials when they came to India as traders but later become the rulers of the country. The prime focus of this research work is to know in depth about the civil law, criminal law and personal laws during the British Era in India and what all evolutions took place in these over a period of time.
