Himachal Pradesh National Law University (HPNLU), Shimla India which is a National Law University in India offering Under- Graduate, Post Graduate and Doctoral programmes in the areas of learning in law, development in students, understanding about the law and legal systems, topographies of law-making, legal practice and administration. The university engages in academic, research, consultancy and outreach activities. It organizes national and international events periodically for knowledge exchange, dissemination as well as networking for the young students.

Advanced studies and research in Comparative Public Law is intended to learn from the kind of legal solutions to resolve similar problems devised by different laws and legal systems of the world. Comparative investigations into law and legal philosophy enable us to abate national prejudices in respect of both making or unmaking law and administration of justice. In the age of globalization, comparative law and legal philosophy impart to legal institutions and judicial processes a cosmopolitan sensibility. It is noteworthy that Indian courts cite invariably legal materials from legal systems all over the world. This helps in formulating jurisprudential discourse that brings better possible alternatives to the existing system.

In view of this trend of comparative studies and the process of learning and unlearning by legal institutions of different countries, Centres of academic research and excellence in higher education play a crucial role. Such Centers of excellence can offer immense opportunities to re-examine the compatibilities of existing laws and fundamental legal categories to the indigenous socio-cultural milieus and facts. In the way in which, these studies about the compatibilities lead to an appreciation of deficiencies, it may also offer insights for developing an alternative way of theorising law and justice.

The Supreme Court Collegium stated that every individual is entitled to maintain their own dignity and individuality, based on sexual orientation. Senior Advocate Kirpal’s openness about his orientation goes to his credit and rejecting his candidature on this ground would be contrary to the constitutional principles laid down by the Supreme Court.
