thesis was titled ‘Analysis of Authorized System in Goa through the Portuguese
Regime (1510-1961)’. A soft-spoken individual like Carmo didn’t wish to put on the
robe to symbolize and defend purchasers within the court docket of legislation and determined to
proceed as a instructor, albeit now of legislation. After finishing his PhD, he joined
Kare School of Legislation, Margao and later in 1996, V M Salgaocar School of Legislation,
Panjim. His analysis pursuits have been Constitutionalism and Household Legal guidelines

India.Dr Carmo’s curiosity was not solely constitutionalism and household
legal guidelines. He was additionally serious about completely different features of Goa – be it historical past,
politics, language, or literature. With a view to assist and encourage college students and
researchers to review on Goa, he organised lectures and conferences. To handle
this ardour of his and to encourage analysis within the space of World
Constitutionalism in addition to on Goa, he began the Ismilda Analysis Centre,
which was the centre from the place he labored after retirement and had an internet site
www.ismilda.org for individuals who have been . He has numerous articles
revealed in convention proceedings and journals.Carmo didn’t write solely educational works and his books present his
pursuits have been in issues near his coronary heart. I keep in mind studying his column in a
native every day, through which he wrote on Goan life and tradition. He additionally wrote three
novels ‘Angela’s Goan Identification’ in 1994. This e book has been translated to
Portuguese by Fernanda M Barros and titled as ‘A Identidade Goesa de Ȃngela’. The opposite two novels are ‘Portugal:
