About NUALS

The National University of Advanced Legal Studies (NUALS), the only National Law University in Kerala is a unidisciplinary university for undergraduate and post-graduate legal education. The University is recognized by the University Grants Commission and is also a member of the Association of Indian Universities (AIU).

About the Webinar

The National University of Advanced Legal Studies is conducting a 3 Day National webinar on “Constitutional Morality and Transformative Constitutionalism” from 14th October 2020 to 16th October 2020. The idea of transformative constitutionalism focuses on the role of the state and the nature of obligation imposed on the state to ensure protection of individual rights.

Unlike the traditional understanding of the role of the state, where the state takes a back seat and intervenes only as prescribed by the Constitution, the key element of the transformative constitutionalism is to ensure the emancipation and constant development of the Constitution to secure the ideals of liberty, equality and fraternity through an active, positive and dynamic role played by the state in safeguarding these rights.

The Indian judiciary in the recent past, through path breaking landmark decisions, has changed the face of Part III of the Constitution. Giving due importance to substantive equality and anti-discrimination, the Courts have recognised the need to remove a static interpretation of the equality and dignity clauses in India and to have a Constitution that is guided on the principles of transformation rather than medieval notions of hierarchy and discrimination.

The webinar intends to create discussions over such a shift in the adjudication of constitutional morality and thereby enhance the understanding of Constitutionalism, Transformative Constitutionalism and the Constitutional Morality doctrine in India used as a tool in adjudicating fundamental rights.

The webinar will be held virtually. The details will be mailed a few days before the webinar.
