About the Club
“The Constitution does not just protect those whose views we share; it also protects those with whose views we disagree.”
No Constitution can guarantee a democracy for a country. Democracy depends on the democratic attitudes and beliefs of the people of a country and the more people participate in a democracy, the more democratic it becomes. The fundamental right to freedom of speech and expression is regarded as one of the most basic elements of a healthy democracy for it allows its citizens to participate fully and effectively in the social and political process of the country. In fact, the freedom of speech and expression gives greater scope and meaning to the citizenship of a person extending the concept from the level of basic existence to giving the person a political and social life.
The Constitutional Law Club was established in the year 2019 to study the contemporary issues and its validity under the Constitution. This Club provides to the future lawmakers and lawyers an opportunity to understand the depth of the Constitution and provide suggestion for better functioning of the government machinery.
