Pith & Substance: The CCAL Blog, is a recent initiative of the Centre for Comparative Constitutional Law and Administrative Law, NLU Jodhpur, to enhance and contribute to discussions on contemporary issues in the fields of constitutional law and administrative law. We seek to provide a space where scholars, students as well as legal practitioners can share opinions on constitutional and administrative law themes.
About the Centre for Comparative Constitutional Law and Administrative Law Journal
The Centre for Comparative Constitutional Law and Administrative Law is established under the patronage of the Vice Chancellor of National Law University Jodhpur, Professor Poonam Pradhan Saxena. The Centre publishes its flagship Journal and Blog under the guidance of our Director, Professor I.P. Massey and members of the Advisory Board such as Former CJI M.N.

We attempt to create a niche in the field of comparative constitutional law and administrative law discourse by discussing existing precedents and the constant changes that are taking place in the field. Our endeavour is to promote a wide-scale engagement not only limited to students pursuing law, but also academicians and other legal luminaries alike.
