Based on the history of the British Empire, this present paper investigates the role of law in colonial regime, how their premise have evolved with time and new course that might be pursued in future. It reviews how scholars have viewed law in colonized World as force, violence, and command. It examines how law was reconceptualized as a site of struggle, resistance, and subversion. A recent comparative and transnational scholarship on legal mobility and migration has been conceptualized. It seeks to go beyond the ambits of colonizer/colonized, domination/resistance, and metropolis/colony that have been the characteristic features of postcolonial studies and have shaped and informed studies of law and colonialism. India has migrated & deviated up to great extent from colonized law and raised important substantive, conceptual, and methodological questions regarding the form, content, and force of law.
