The world is a dynamic place, with constitutions rewritten rapidly, so the professor starts his day by getting informed of the current affairs online. Sujit then oversees ongoing projects either by email or coordinating with his specialists and finally taking a few hours to write and read new researches. According to the Professor, he started the organization, CCT, to fill the knowledge gap and do away with the outdated constitutional law through the identification of critical global and local issues.

CCT works with lots of experts in various countries and policy partners around the world using multiple languages to achieve the same results. Where knowledge lacks or is conventional, they find a way around it, as he puts it, “Our work emanates from real-life examples.”

Just as the internet connects the world, the same way it combines the constitution which governs the people and this is what intrigues Choudhry. “Constitutions belong to everyone,” as he puts it; explaining it is not just reserved for the educated experts, but now people can contribute to it through online platforms.

According to the professor, he regrets his time as an academic administrator, not doing what he loved most; dealing with constitutional issues. Though, if he were to do something differently, would be to think what’s coming next and instead of researching on Canada, he would have focused on the world.

Richard Liu’s Mark on the E-Commerce Industry

Richard Liu’s Mark on the E-Commerce Industry

Richard Liu’s story is that of perseverance and never giving up. He came from an employee to an entrepreneur with a failed business to a billionaire worth 5.5 billion dollars. Richard Liu started out as an employee in an establishment that develops health products where he was tasked with the role of business management and management of the department of computers. After working for the company for two years, he came up with a business play and developed a retail business. His store sold products of the magneto-optical company. He managed to do well enough to open twelve similar stores in different parts of China in the first five years of business. His businesses, however, went downhill after a while leaving him to figure out what to do next.

Richard Liu’s venture into e-commerce

One of Richards common hobbies while in the University and even after was coding and programming. So he decided to combine his skills in the retail business and his computer skills to come up with a new business. The savvy entrepreneur launched JD.Com in 2004. JD.Com is an e-commerce platform that he initially started to sell the products that he sold in his retail stores but he later rebranded the company to accommodate a variety of other products in the market.

The company started out so well and has been going uphill since then. Richard saw it wise to enter a deal with Tencent that would have him sell them 15percent of his company and in exchange, they would help him boost the popularity of his platform. True to their word, Tencent used their social media platforms to advertise JD.Com and within no time, the e-commerce platform had garnered a billion users. Recently the company also got into a partnership with the popular Walmart stores. By making Walmart part of JD.Com’s shareholders, the e-commerce platform gained the license to sell all the products that are sold in the physical Walmart stores. The partnership also inspired a multi-million dollar investment in Farfetch, an institution that is also in partnership with Walmart.

Education

Richard Liu studied Sociology in the Renmin University of China.
