About the Author:

Mahendra Pal Singh (born 15 July 1940), popularly known as M.P. Singh, is a constitutional law scholar of India. He is best known amongst students of Constitution of India for being the revising author of V.N. Shukla's Constitution of India a standard textbook for lawyers on Constitution of India. Internationally however, he is more famous amongst scholars of comparative constitutional law and comparative administrative law for his work, German Administrative Law in Common Law Perspective.

Professor Singh has laid especial emphasis in making legal education more meaningful to Indian society by making the top law schools more accessible to the students from less privileged background. At NUJS, and since, he has been leading an effort called IDIA, or 'Increasing Diversity by Increasing Access', which involves an engagement with school going children from different parts of semi-urban and rural India and to encourage and help them enter the top law schools of the country. Towards the same end, he has also been heading a group of academicians, called the Legal Education and Research Society or 'LEARS' as it is popularly referred to. He has also been running a school in his village Jitholi for the children of the nearby places. Students from NUJS and volunteers from IDIA have often visited and interacted with the kids of this school

Reviews

 

"Professor Singh is to be congratulated in maintaining the impetus of research and revision necessary for successive editions of a book which is extremely useful for the purposes of reference and teaching."

- Cambridge Law Journal, U.K.

"I have already found it useful for references to authorities on particular articles."

- International and Comparative Law Quarterly, U.K.

"Precise and yet lucid accounts of the rationale in scores of leading decisions of the Supreme Court of India is the chief strength of this text."

- Malayan Law Review, Singapore

"It is a lawyer's book as well. The scholars of multi-disciplines may be tempted to have it in view of its lucid style and valuable and detailed information. The present reviewer has no hesitation in saying that today the book has attained the status of one of the leading commentaries on the Constitution of India.''

- Journal of the Indian Law Institute

"Considered opinions of academic men standing aloof from political ideologies or emotions given in a purely detached spirit on these and other questions are bound to carry respect and weight. Dr. Shukla, as a scholar and Professor of Law has the necessary credentials. Justice Kidwai in his Foreword has observed that in view of the fact that the life, liberty and property of every citizen of India is vitally affected by the provisions of the Constitution it is necessary that every effort should be made to make the provisions easily comprehensible and that Mr. Shukla's book has fulfilled the need admirably."

- Madras Law Journal
