The Renown Expert On Constitutional Law
With degrees in constitutional law from the University of Toronto and New York University, Sujit Choudhry is an expert in constitution building. Naturally, he’s in demand as both a professor of law and as an expert consult. Currently, he teaches at the Berkeley campus of the University of California. At UC Berkeley he teaches his students about the constitution building process and how today’s developing nations are taking the modern constitutional model and revamping it for their own purposes.
The Constitutional Consultant
Across the world he helps non-government organizations such as the World Bank Institute and the United Nations Mediation Roster accomplish their goals of creating a more peaceful world. In order for these NGOs to fulfill their goals, they need the assistance of someone who can help formerly autocratic nations transition peacefully into the a modern democracy. Sujit Choudhry understands exactly what it takes to create a constitution that addresses all of issues present in today’s developing world. In fact, he has even served as an advisor to countries currently seeking to transition into modern democracies.
Advising Developing Nations
Sujit Choudhry wants to create a more global world, and part of fulfilling that goal is working directly with governments in a transitional phase. Among the nations he has provided with constitutional consultations are South Africa, Sri Lanka, Libya, and Ukraine. These countries are some of the newest constitutionally based governments to spring forth. Although they do bear a resemblance to the constitutions of the developed world, these countries have constitutions suited to their unique needs and cultures. Some of these countries want secular governments, but others have developed constitutions with religion firmly in tact.
What The Future Has In Store
With a long list of achievements already behind him, Sujit Choudhry continues to produce new books, conduct new research, and dispense his expertise as an instructor. He has recently announced a new book is in development. This book will focus on the constitution of India and the unique forces that have shaped his birth country’s government.
