The Department of Law was established in July 1947 under the Faculty of Arts. It was then located in “College House” which was previously known as “Regina Walawwa”, purchased by the government in 1920 for the purpose of setting up the University College which was the forerunner of the University of Ceylon.
About the Webinar
Progressive Education Society’s Modern Law Colleg, Pune in association with the Faculty of Law, University of Colombo, Sri Lanka is organizing an ‘International Webinar on Emerging Trends of Fundamental Rights: Comparative Constitutional Perspective’ on 27th Feb 2021.
The Constitution of every nation is the Supreme Law of land which upholds the rights and duties of individuals. The aim of having a declaration of fundamental rights in the Constitution is to prevent possible danger due to the State’s action against violation of fundamental rights. Recognition of Fundamental Rights under the Constitution provides a restraint on the power of the government to interfere with the peoples’ basic rights arbitrarily. When rights and freedoms are placed in the Constitution they become part of the Supreme Law. The Fundamental Rights are included in the Constitution because they are considered essential for the development of individuals with human dignity. In this 21st century, the ambit of fundamental rights is expanding enormously. Comparative Constitutional Law is a newly energized field in the early 21st century. Never before has the field had such a broad range of interdisciplinary interests, with lawyers, sociologists, and even economists making contributions to our collective understanding of how constitutions are formed and how they operate and protect fundamental rights. The need for the comparative method has become inevitable to study the very existence of fundamental rights. In current times when society is fast changing, we often see the judiciary playing a pivotal role in the development and protection of the rights and duties enshrined under the public law documents.
