Before you can understand the value of this new organization, you have to understand the background and credentials of its founder, Sujit Choudhry.
Choudhry was born in New Deli, India where he had his basic education. He moved to Canada for high school. In high school, Choudhry developed an affinity for biology, so he moved on to McGill University to take a BA in Biology. His academic distinctions at McGill earned for him a Rhodes scholarship, so he traveled to Oxford. He returned to Canada with a new degree, LL.B and a new passion for the law. Two post-high school degrees were insufficient for Mr. Choudhry who now attended Harvard, the first name in legal education in the United States. He concluded his legal education with a LL.M from Harvard and embarked on his professional career. With reference from en.wikipedia.org.
With a handful of degrees, Mr. Sujit Choudhry was a sought-after academic. He spent some years in a variety of positions at the University of Toronto also serving on the Governing Toronto Advisory Panel for reforming the municipal governance of Toronto. From there, he continued his academic and political career in Canada including serving on the Ontario Broad of Directors and presenting cases before the Supreme Court. He acted as a consultant to federal committees in Canada and as a consultant to the World Bank.
His latest endeavor may be his most challenging of his life. His goal for the Center for constitutional Transitions is to generate knowledge and encourage foundations for democratic constitutional governments all over the world. He expects to work with think tanks, non-governmental agencies and global partners to help realize his goals.
