Constitutional Law in any State defines State powers as well as constitutes and delineates the organs of government. In addition to dealing with the organization of state and government, constitutional law also concerns itself with the relationship between government and citizens, more specifically with the rights and privileges of the individual vis-à-vis the state. The superior nature of Constitutional law viz a viz other aspects of law requires that detailed and constant scholarly consultations be undertaken to keep the issues to which the subject matter relates, in agreement with present realities. As such, Constitutional law remains a major focus of legal studies and research in the Institute. The NIALS Journal of Constitutional Law is dedicated to the advancement of legal knowledge in the field of Constitutional Law both on a national and on an international scale.
