Sujit Choudhry is the founding director of the “Center for Constitutional Transitions”. In a recent interview with Lynn Fosse, a senior editor of the CEOCFO magazine, Choudhry went into depth about how his background influenced his career, what his vision is for the future, and what he thinks about the challenges that democracies around the world are facing.
Sujit Choudhry is a unique person because he holds law degrees from three different countries: Harvard (USA), Oxford (UK), and Toronto (CA). Choudry explained that this unique background gave him a perspective on law that many people do not have; he saw the way laws differed from country to country. In his own words, he explains: “As an immigrant who has law degrees from three countries, I’ve navigated new legal and political environments for my entire life”. He feels that the wide, global perspective that he holds on legal systems has helped him work with constitutional law. He stated, “That skill has been a key ingredient in my professional success, as every country has its own particular issues, histories and stakeholders”.
