The similar constitutional role has an important role to play in today’s world, and Sujit Choudhry is an essential figure in this field. He has worked on many articles and books that are related to this subject and is often called to participate in the events that are associated with the comparative constitutional law and methodologies (works.bepress.com). Sujit Choudhry has traveled across the globe as a student due to his parents’ job as professors, and it is what has helped him understand the importance of education from a very young age. It is also what has contributed to him studying law at three top universities, namely Oxford Law, Harvard Law, and Toronto University. Sujit Choudhry said that studying law at three top universities in different countries has given him a broader perspective on law and has helped him understand the actual differences between the laws of different countries, and how the comparative law can play a crucial role in the foundation of a uniform law worldwide.

Sujit Choudhry has often said in interviews (iconnectblog.com) and even in his books and articles that the constitutional change has to be there sooner or later. He believes that the world has progressed, but most of the laws that are being followed presently are age-old, and until unless the constitutional reforms are done, the world would not be able to progress uniformly. In one of the conferences that Sujit Choudhry recently attended in the capital of Ukraine, Kiev, Sujit Choudhry mentioned that the ongoing political situation in the country could be resolved with the help of comparative law. Sujit Choudhry said that the nation needs better electoral process and a stronger government that doesn’t have to dilute its power due to the semi-presidential system in the country. Once it is achieved, the people of Ukraine would start having the faith on the government, and affirmative reforms would begin taking place.

Sujit Choudhry serves as the professor of law at Berkeley Law College presently and has also worked as a law professor at NYU in the past. Sujit Choudhry is also the founder and director of the Center for Constitutional Transition, which is a globally leading organization on comparative law.

Professor Sujit Choudhry’s current publication will be included as a chapter in the book, Constitutional Democracies in Crisis? He examined a tweet by the former Attorney General, Eric Holder. This tweet was published in December 2017 and involved the topic of the termination of Robert Mueller, the White House special counsel. In the tweet Eric Holder refers to the potential firing of Robert Mueller. Eric Holder made the suggestion that if anything happened there would be peaceful demonstrations by the masses. Sujit Choudhry’s further analysis suggested Eric Holder based the tweet on the concept of the crossing of the symbolic “redline” and leaves it up to the determination of the people, to make the decision on whether the redline and boundary had been exceeded. This, Professor Sujit Choudhry referred to as the idea of constitutional self enforcement. He further expanded on the concept of constitutions being expectations for governing of both the citizens as well as the government officials.
