This project aims to educate and inspire Indian law students on the subject of the U.S. and Indian Constitutions, providing the opportunity for comparative review of their respective foundational documents.

This funding opportunity builds on the momentum of the 2019 debate competition in South India with a FY20 “U.S.-India Comparative Constitutional Law 2.0” project that entails a series of workshops featuring U.S. and Indian Constitutional legal scholars. This project will comprise up to eight workshops with 50 students each from National and Government Law Universities in India underscoring shared values and the importance of civil rights and responsibilities.

The program aims to inspire public deliberations culminating in a greater awareness about U.S. and Indian constitutional law. The program hopes to involve the top 16 students who were the awardees of the 2019 debate project and leverage their influence among peers to further discussion and activities. The program will also connect with institutions like the National Constitution Center in the United States to educate, promote, and spread awareness about the U.S. Constitution and serve as a conduit to engage India students via Skype with their peers in the United States. It will provide opportunities for vice-chancellors of relevant Indian universities to collaborate with their counterparts at U.S. law universities to foster exchanges of faculty, students, and resources.

Project Goal: Increase participation of youth leaders and law students on civil rights, civic responsibility, and active citizenship through increased knowledge on the U.S. and Indian Constitutions.
