Sujit Choudhry – International Constitution Expert

Sujit Choudhry founded the Center of Constitutional Transitions and is now the Director heading the institution that has a main focus on the constitution, supporting it, building on it, and working with experts to produce options for key decision makers (constitutionaltransitions.org). Sujit decided to take on this venture as he has several years of experience working as a constitutional advisor. Some of the task that he is been involved with are helping to create new constitutions, while also aiding in the amending of prior constitutions. With this being said, Choudhry has to stay up-to-date on the latest activities around the world. He is consistently researching and partnering with global organizations to bring a strong expertise to the table.

Sujit himself, being an immigrant and traveling across the world has experiences in both legal and political issues in these areas. One thing he learned while working in the different countries is that they are all similar in the fact that they all have constitutional problems but of course they all have constitutional successes, as well.

What makes him even more of an asset, is the fact that he has studied law in three different countries, to include the United States, Canada, and England (http://blogs.law.nyu.edu/magazine/2011/introducing-sujit-choudhry/). Over the years he has felt himself do extreme amounts of legal and political research in order to continue to find constitutional issues and trends that he can help to fix.

One thing that separates him from others is that Sujit Choudhry likes to go straight to the source. He thinks it is critical to the success of the nations in their constitutions to go directly to the people that it affects. While national leaders and politicians can have an idea of what is needed, the truth of it is found with the people at ground level. With both of his parents being humble professors, Sujit grew up always inquisitive and wanting to learn more. This is ultimately led him to be one of the experts to help create and maintain global knowledge networks.
