U.S.-India Comparative Constitutional Law Workshops

June 21, 2021 | Meenakshi Ramkumar

The Centre for Law and Policy Research (CLPR) in collaboration with its partnered Indian and American universities will organise a series of workshops on U.S.-India Comparative Constitutional law between August to December 2021. Four Indian law universities will be paired with four U.S. law universities for an interactive session. These workshops are supported by the American Consulate General, Chennai.


Participating Indian Law Schools

1. Tamil Nadu National Law University, Tiruchirappalli

2. The National University of Advanced Legal Studies, Kochi


Participating US Law Schools

To be updated.



The workshops are designed to be intense and will focus on critical constitutional law issues from a U.S.-India comparative lens. Each workshop will be divided into distinct sessions led by Indian and American legal experts and academics. A key component of the workshop is a video interaction session, between students of an Indian law school and an American law school.


The sessions would facilitate a series of conversations between participating students of both Indian and US law schools. It will provide an opportunity to understand the shared constitutional origins of the U.S. and India. It will further analyse the trajectories of Indian and U.S. constitutional law practice. The workshops will be online and will have both synchronous and asynchronous components.





We are in the process of constituting an Advisory Committee of four prominent academics, legal practitioners, and civil society professionals to shape the design and pedagogy of the workshops.
