The CPLJ is an interdisciplinary research center at Jindal Global Law School, India, offering interdisciplinary expertise on questions of justice, violence, accountability, and coercion on the line between public law and private passion. The CPLJ promotes a multi-disciplinary JGU. The CPLJ includes within its mandate the mission to solve urgent problems and meditate on long-term solutions for contemporary jurisprudence and the practice of public law. The CPJL approaches the disciplines of public law and interdisciplinary jurisprudence as windows onto larger questions of culture and society. Since a truly Global Law School must traverse the hemispheres of thought and not only those drawn on maps as a resource and destination for world-renowned scholars and public intellectuals, the inception of CPLJ is to address this fact.
