Comparative constitutional law is a blossoming area of legal research with a large number of new publications in recent years. The comparison of different legal systems provides a number of benefits including the better understanding of both domestic and foreign legal systems, identifying opportunities for legal reform, and improving our understanding of the relationship between law and economic, social and political contexts.
Comparative law is used by judges to survey legal developments in similarly situated jurisdictions, lawyers in advising their clients on cross-border matters, and international organisations to promote legal reforms to strengthen the rule of law and human rights. In relation to the idea of a ‘legal transplant’, pioneered by Alan Watson, there is a rich scholarly discourse. Comparative constitutional scholarship by Mark Tushnet and others has demonstrated the extent of constitutional borrowing, with many countries drawing on the experience of others in formulating their foundational laws.
We are inviting participation from across India for this International Conference on Comparative Constitutional Law on the theme of “Comparing and Contrasting the Constitutional Models of India and Australia.
