Constitutional Law Society, Tamil Nadu National Law University is inviting submissions for Blogs for CLS TNNLU Blog by March 5th, 2023.

About the CLS TNNLU Blog

The CLS Blog is a forum created by the Constitutional Law Society, TNNLU to enrich the dialogue surrounding contemporary issues of constitutional law. Our aim is to provide a platform for the TNNLU fraternity and the members of academia and practice to contribute to this growing discourse, while also ensuring that these subjects are comprehensible and accessible to everyone. We primarily accept submissions related to constitutional law, but welcome and actively encourage interdisciplinary topics. This is in keeping with our goal to spread awareness of all aspects of constitutional law, and its intersection with other fields of study.


Constitutional Endurance

A note on the theme

Constitutional endurance is the longevity of a constitution or how long it lasts before being replaced by a new constitution. Endurance of constitutions provides a stable base for the politics of a particular state and in fact helps to constitute one out of diverse people. It has been observed that the predicted lifespan for any constitution is 19 years, but this varies between various regions. Studies on constitutional endurance have tried drawing linkages from a variety of factors such as the presence of democracy and political system being followed in the country.


  1. Endurance of the Indian Constitution in light of the Basic Structure Doctrine and various amendments.
  2. Threats posed by The Emergency on the endurance of the Indian Constitution.
  3. Role of drafters of the Indian Constitution in its Endurance.
  4. Impact of Incrementalism and public inclusions in the drafting process on Constitutional Endurance.
  5. Effects of social movements and instabilities on the endurance of constitutions.
  6. Constitutional Endurance, Federalism and Constitutions of units of states.
  7. Flexibility of Constitutions and Endurance.
  8. Constitutional Endurance promotes control over the opinions of future generations.
  9. Endurance of Constitutional Institutions post demise of Constitutions.
  10. Unwritten Constitutions and Constitutional Replacement.

In this call, we welcome your insight on the above topics in the form of articles, opinion pieces, case comments, legislative comments or as book reviews.

The deadline for the thematic submission is March 5th, 2023.
