Comparative constitutional law is not practiced as commonly as nearly any other kind, but it has been a crucial part in handling governance and constitution building in different parts of the world for decades. Sujit Choudhry is an expert in constitutional law who has been recognized around the world for his contributions as a leader and advisor for the rule of law processes. Sujit has provided his expertise in many different countries, including Yemen, Ukraine, South Africa, Nepal, Libya, Egypt, Myanmar, and more.
Sujit Choudhry has lectured in more than two dozens countries on politics and comparative law throughout his career, while at the same time acting as a professor and giving lectures to thousands of students over the years. He has worked as a professor at the University of California, the University of Toronto Faculty of Law, and the New York University School of Law. 2018 was Sujit Choudhry’s last year as a professor of law at the Berkeley School of Law in California.
As a professor, Sujit has worked on a number of different books and articles, including over 90 published papers and four different books titled, “The Migration of Constitutional Ideas“, “Constitutional Design for Divided Societies: Integration or Accommodation?”, ” The Oxford Handbook of the Indian Constitution”, and “Constitution Making”.
In 2012, Sujit Choudhry founded the Center for Constitutional Transitions, an organization that supports constitution building by mobilizing international networks and generating projects to create policies for practitioners and government parties. The idea to start this organization came to Sujit during his time working as a constitutional advisor throughout various democracies around the world.
After writing and amending his fair share of constitutions, he learned that even though there is a lot of knowledge available pertaining to constitutional transitions, there are many aspects that are outdated or just plain do not exist in constitutional law. It is the Center for Constitutional Transitions that is now responsible for identifying important constitutional issues and generating the knowledge to handle constitutional transitions appropriately.
