The Constitutional Law and Policy Reform Society (CLPRS) believes that a strong democratic society depends on its citizens’ ability to comprehend the intricate details of constitutional law and policymaking. CLPRS seeks to involve and spread knowledge of constitutional law through discussions, interactive lecture series, workshops, seminars, and debate competitions.
CLPRS provides students and faculty of Pravin Gandhi College of Law, a platform to participate in a deep-dive of constitutional tenets. It offers a forum where current laws and policies are examined with the goal to suggest changes to existing law and to policy.
CLPRS organises activities such as annual debates, discussions on recent constitutional developments, policy changes; conducts guest lectures by judges and practioners of law. These events help students refine their debating, research, and oratory skills.
