Abstract:     
This article provides an account of Nepal’s constitutional developments over the years in the light of the ‘interaction between indigenous law and transplanted law’. It seeks to maintain a comparative perspective, especially within the South Asian context, and reflects upon the modalities of the political transformations that have occurred in Nepal over the past 250 years, with particular reference to the influence of external legal and political concepts. Imported models have been progressively implanted into autochthonous juridical and political structures, and the interplay of different systems has generated a situation of legal pluralism in Nepal.
