About Call for Blogs

IILM Law School is organizing a Constitutional Law Blog Writing Competition on the occasion of Constitution Day to commemorate a significant event in the country’s history. On this day in 1949, the Constituent Assembly of India adopted the Constitution of India, which came into effect on January 26, 1950, marking the birth of the Republic of India.

November 26th was chosen as Constitution Day to honor the contributions of Dr. B.R. Ambedkar, the principal architect of the Indian Constitution. Participants can express their thoughts through their writings to create a meaningful and informative celebration of Constitution Day while engaging with the Constitution’s principles and ideals.
