About the Centre
The Centre for Comparative Constitutional Law and Administrative Law (CCAL) 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. Venkatachaliah, Senior Advocate Rajeev Dhawan and Professor Timothy Endicott amongst others.
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.
