- Core Course
Constitutional Law III is a core course for the B.A., LL.B (hons.) programme and completes the study of Constitutional Law that has been divided into three broad areas. The Constitutional Law course in NLSIU has three broad themes – Constitutional Law I primarily focuses on the fundamental rights; Constitutional Law II is devoted to federal structure; and, Constitutional Law III covers the accountability framework within the constitutional scheme.
The accountability framework is reflected in the system of checks and balances viz separation of powers, judicial review and legislative framework embedded within the Constitution. Accordingly, the course includes discussion on their jurisprudential basis, purpose, the constitutional design and inter-relationship.
