Born in January 1943 in a village in Dindigul District in Tamil Nadu, Dr Justice AK Rajan grew up wanting to be an engineer. A change in the State pre-university exam rules in the 1970s however, left him disqualified and so, he opted for law instead as the flexible hours at law college left him with time to tend to his ailing father’s wholesale flower business.

However, once Justice Rajan began studying law, there was no looking back. He developed a passion for the law that led him to teaching law and then to the judiciary. He also became the law secretary and drafted several bills that later became Law. In 2000, Justice Rajan was elevated as a judge of the Madras High Court. He retired in January 2005. He has also authored several books on the law and judiciary.

Justice Rajan also led the High-Level State Committee to study the impact of NEET on socially backward students.
