This paper explores how international human rights rules have played a contribution in the globalisation of India's constitutional legislation. Transnational law, which operates outside the borders of individual states, is the result of the convergence of formerly separate legal systems brought about by globalisation. There are a number of international agreements and treaties that govern the management of businesses internationally. The development of international entities like the International Court of Justice and International Criminal Court has also improved the enforcement of international law. Also, a new type of lawyers who focus on international law have emerged as a result of globalisation. The Indian Constitution lays down not only the structure of administration but also the fundamental rights and obligations of people and the workings of the legal system, making it one of the most extensive and complex constitutions now in use. The colonial period saw the beginning of Indian constitutional law, and in 1885 the Indian National Congress was established to push for a new constitution that would grant Indians greater political power and freedoms. The request was granted and a federal form of government was established in India by the Government of India Act of 1935; the Constitution of India was ratified in 1949. The author of this paper claims that the harmonisation of laws in different jurisdictions is a direct result of the effect international law has had on the evolution of India's constitutional law. One effect of globalisation may be the strengthening of laws protecting intellectual property. The paper argues that the role of law will evolve in light of growing international connections, and that legal systems will have to adapt to these new circumstances if they are to remain effective and relevant.
