ConQuest: India’s premiere national quiz on the Indian Constitution, History and Politics is CLPR’s annual flagship event.

 

ConQuest encourages undergraduate and graduate students from the natural sciences, engineering, social sciences, humanities, and law to engage with the Indian Constitution, law, politics, history and current affairs in a fun yet rigorous way.

 

Over three years, ConQuest has become the largest quiz and educational activity celebrating India’s constitutional history and politics. More than 8000 students have engaged with the past editions of ConQuest.
