CfP: 1st Case Commentary Competition by National Law Society Odisha: Submit by April 20


The Constitutional Law Society of National Law University Odisha was established in 2018 with a vision to provide a platform for public discourse and deliberation vis-à-vis Constitutional Law.

The Constitutional Law Society seeks to supplement an accessible forum for intellectual discourse and shape the discussion of the most important and relevant issues pertaining to constitutional through meticulous scholarship, public lectures and seminars, and research through independent projects, conferences, and co-operation with other institutions and individuals engaged in constitutional study.

The activities undertaken by the Society shall be aimed at enabling the students to have a holistic understanding of constitutional principles and constitutional jurisprudence.


Principles of the Constitution evolve constantly in the form of doctrines, philosophies and theories; institutionalizing, extending and protecting multifaceted rights. The Constitution keeps growing in the form of a living tree and it affects the social, economic and political structure in insurmountable forms.

Development in the spheres of the Constitution demands constant examination and re-examination of the perceptions which construe the status quo of Constitutional discourse. An understanding of these developments is largely undertaken through an in-depth and thorough analysis of judgements which are passed by our Courts and as such, promoting originality and continuation of such discourse is essential to the growth of the living tree of the Constitution.

This Case Commentary Competition seeks to promote original thought, Constitutional discourse and analysis amongst students, researchers, academicians and legal practitioners.
