Definition of Public Interest

The public interest is such a compound and delicate notion to navigate. This is because it has deliberately progressed as vague and alterable. It has no all-encompassing definition since it is contextually firm in scope and tenacity. Public Interest is involved in several topics that is related to the public directly. For example, sexual harassment, child abuse, immigration, refugee, human rights, housing, employment, religion, and more. It can be explained by taking example of any case in ruling request is made by the governing authorities. Their decision may be deemed in public interest today but this may change in few years. There’s no rule book for working in the public interest and it is an important part of law. The definitions and discussions are too loose and ambiguous.
