The Competition: Background
On the 26th Day of November 2020, India celebrated the landmark 71 Years of its Constitution which was formally adopted on 26.11.1949. Our Constitution has undergone a tremendous change over these seven decades. Starting with 395 Articles and 8 schedules, it now stands at over 450 Articles and 12 Schedules which is a result of 104 amendments.
Our Constitution is a very strong and robust, voluminous document, and all these strengths is built upon and because of the safeguarding provisions it has for securing the fundamental rights and freedom and justice of the citizens. Therefore on the occasion of 71st Constitution Day, the Constitutional Law Club, NUSRL has organized the national level blog writing competition to further the discussions on the glorious aspects of the Indian Constitution.
All law pursuing students (three or five years, including L.L.M/PhD) from any recognized university.
