The Centre for Law and Policy Research (CLPR) is excited to announce the 6th edition of ConQuest: India’s Premiere National Quiz on the Indian Constitution, History and Politics.

 

Since its first edition in 2016, ConQuest has become the largest quiz and educational activity that celebrates India’s constitutional history and politics. The 2022 edition returns in-person after a 3-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

ConQuest encourages undergraduate and graduate students from all disciplines including natural sciences, social sciences, engineering, humanities, and law to engage with the Indian Constitution, law, politics, history and current affairs. These include bachelor’s and master’s students. M.Phil and PhD students are not allowed to participate, but are welcome as audience members for their respective regional rounds and/or the National final round.

 

This year, the Quiz will be held in November and December. We begin with regional rounds in Pune, Kolkata, Delhi and Bengaluru in collaboration with our regional partners. The National Finals will be held in Bengaluru in early December.
