The book aims to provide a Comparative analysis between the Constitutional frameworks of India & Australia. Comparative Constitutional Law is an intellectually vibrant field that encompasses an increasingly broad array of approaches and methodologies.
It is imperative to compare the legal structures of different countries, so as to draw a better understanding of the domestic and the foreign legal framework. Subsequently, it also aids in identifying opportunities for legal reforms and improving the understanding of the relationship between the legal, social, political and economic spheres of a country. Comparative Law is used as a tool to adjudge the contemporary developments in the legal system and how it has proved for the nations with similar jurisdictions.
The ultimate objective is to confront the plurality of constitutional rules and to highlight similarities and differences in order to create models to explain the ultimate values that underpin the constitutional agreements.
