The Daksha Fellowship

Daksha is the first law fellowship in India to offer sector-specific specializations. Students can opt to specialize in:

Technology Law and Policy: In addition to general courses like data protection, cybercrimes and intellectual property law, this pathway will provide sectoral exposure to areas like telecommunications, financial technologies and social media.

Law and Regulation: This pathway will provide a conceptual understanding of regulation and sectoral insights on key regulatory domains like energy and infrastructure, food and the green economy.

Disputes Resolution: This pathway will provide a comprehensive and conceptual understanding of emerging areas in dispute resolution such as arbitration, mediation and conciliation.
