Sujit Choudhry, Professor of Comparative Law and a Rhodes Scholar

Comparative Law is the study of the different legal systems throughout the world. This includes Civil law, common law, Canon law, Jewish Law, socialist law as well as Islamic, Hindu, and Chinese law. It studies the similarities and differences in the laws of different countries and it includes the analysis and descriptions of the foreign legal systems, even if there are no explicit comparisons.

In this age of economic globalization and internationalism comparative law has increased enormously in importance.

Our modern comparative law can be traced as far back and the 18th century in Europe but before that the legal scholars practiced comparative methodologies. The man believed to be the founder of comparative law, is Montesquieu, a French lawyer and philosopher, famous for his theory of the separation of powers. He was said to be the first to use comparative methods to classify the political forms of our human societies.

The comparative law was at one time a minor and somewhat obscure adjunct in the field of domestic constitutional law but It has moved to the forefront in the past couple of decades. With the spread of democratic government and the expansion of the International human rights law and the visibility of the field with judges, politicians, and scholars has grown rapidly.

Comparative law involves the study of legal systems, which includes their constitutive element and how they differ throughout the world and how the elements combine to form a system. In the different areas of comparative law, they study detailed comparisons of two countries or a broad range of studies of several countries.

One of the most recognized authorities on comparative constitutions law both here and abroad is Sujit Choudhry. He has a wide range research agenda and has an in-depth amount of field experience. He is an advisor to the constitution building processes in Libya, Nepal, South Africa, Tunisia Sri Lanka Egypt. Jordan and the Ukraine.

He is a member of the United Nations Mediation Roster, and has spoken or lectured in over two dozen countries. His research examines constitutional design as a way to manage the transition from violent conflict to peaceful democratic politics.

Dean Choudhry has a Masters of Law degree from Harvard Law School, Bachelors of Law from the University of Toronto, Bachelor of Arts in Law, University of Oxford, Bachelor of Science from McGill University, and he is a Rhodes Scholar.

Securus Christmas Videos for Inmate Morale

As a company that works primarily with people who are in prisons, Securus recognizes the need to make the connection with people who are in prison and the people who love them. They want to make sure that the people who are in prison are able to stay in touch with their families so that they will have a better chance at rehabilitation after they are out of prison. When it comes to the way that inmates can communicate with their family members, the ones who are able to have a lower recidivism rate than those who are unable to communicate with the people who they love.


During the Christmas season, the morale in most jails tends to go down because the holidays can be depressing for people who are in prison. While the people who are in jail may not have much to look forward to, Securus gives them something to get excited about. The company offers the chance to communicate with family members through video chat while they are in prison. This will allow them to see the people that they love. Even if it is in prison, they can still enjoy talking to their loved ones.


Securus is one of the only jail industry companies that offers more for the inmates. They put kiosks into prisons that include everything from inmate email to video chatting and everything in between. Some of the kiosks that are in the prisons can even allow people the chance to buy commissary right from there. This is something that is great for the prison because it reduces the need for extra staff in the prison and gives the prisoners the chance to feel like they are still able to make some decisions on their own without the need for supervision from officers.


Video chatting is becoming more popular in the outside world as well as the prison world. People who are on the outside can talk to their loved ones over video chat and inmates can do the same. While they may not be able to do everything that they want on the video chat, it is much easier than an in-person visit.
