Sujit Choudhry, an I. Michael Heyman Law Professor at the University of California, Berkeley as well as a founding director of the Center for Constitutional Transitions. He is also a globally renowned scholar for his in-depth knowledge of the comparative constitutional law as well as politics (medium.com).

He has likewise been a constitutional counselor for more than two decades. Professor Choudhry’s expertise falls in facilitating open dialogue sessions alongside civil society organizations as well as various stakeholders, heading stakeholders consultations, engaging government employees and civil servants, among others. He currently is a United Nations Mediation Roster member and an advisor of the World Bank as well as United Nations Development Program.

His latest publication that is set for release with the title “Constitutional Democracies in Crisis?” centers on a tweet from Eric Holder, a former A.G under President Barrack Obama, and released to his followers on December 2017, see works.bepress.com. According to Sujit Choudhry, the A.G ’s call to action depends on two ideas – one being an emblematic “red line”, an American democracy constitutional boundary, while the other being that Holder surrenders it over to the Americans to determine if officials have truly abused their power. He adds that the response of the Americans will decide how the issue is settled.

As expected, Professor Sujit Choudhry touches on the President of US Donald Trump’s travel ban in light of an unconstitutional intention, namely against Muslim hostility. If it was somehow found to be unlawful in a court, would the administration attempt to do as the National Assembly. He continues to narrate that sooner or later if a court finds the ban illegal, the inquiry will emerge whether the administration will attempt to proclaim another ban, which will eventually be tried once more. Raising a troublesome issue: whether the government’s ensuing activities will be forever polluted by its previous unconstitutional intentions or that pollution could be cured somehow.

He has been a consultant to international dignitaries who were making constitutions in their home nations, for example, Yemen, Ukraine, Jordan, Libya, Sri Lanka, Tunisia, South Africa, Egypt, and Nepal (law.nyu.edu). Sujit Choudhry was invited to advise the World Bank Institute by the World Bank together with United Nations Development Program.
