Born in 1970 in New Delhi, India, Sujit Choudhry is currently serving as the twelfth Dean of University of California’s, Berkeley School of Law. Of equal significance, he is an author and an internationally recognized expert in comparative, constitutional law.

Comparative law studies different laws including: common; civil; socialist; Canon; Jewish, Islamic; Hindu; and Chinese law. The process of comparative law dates to 18th century, Europe. The “father” of current comparative law was Sir Henry Maine, a British historian and lawyer. Primarily, comparative law exists for gaining more knowledge, contributing to the development, perfection and fusion of legal systems. And the significance of comparative law has grown thanks to increased cooperation between more nations, democracy, and global monetary markets.

  • Ely’s Democracy and Distrust;
  • Alexander Bickel’s The Least Dangerous Branch;
  • Hart’s Concept of Law; and
  • Dworkin’s “Hard Cases” despite the fact that he more closely associates himself with Fred Schauer’s criticisms of Dworkin.

In another interesting interview question, Dean Sujit Choudhry addressed current challenges in his field. These included:

  • Design and interpretation of constitutional changes;
  • The loss of democracy in 1930s Europe;
  • Crossbreeding constitutional development;
  • Relational analysis by the courts system;
  • Integrating approaches to constitutional writing in societies separated by cultures;
  • Transitional justice versus negotiated transitions.

And finally, when asked about what counsel the Dean would offer to the next generation of comparative legal experts, he stated “This is comparative constitutional law’s moment. We may be facing the greatest global challenge to liberal democratic constitutionalism since WWII. For those of us who live and work in the United States, but study the world, the myth of American exceptionalism has been punctured, and comparative experience has never been more important to mainstream legal and political analysis. The best scholarship will combine analytical rigor with political salience. Rise to the challenge.”  For more, check

A Short History of Comparative Law

One could say that comparative law was born in the year 1900 when experts from all over Europe delivered papers touching on comparative law in Paris. The conference’s aim was to come up with a common law to govern the civilized world. The events of the First World War, however, led to a change in objectives. The interest for comparative law began to expand beyond Europe and into countries with common law such as the US and England.
