“The course is designed to help students learn the legal, public policy, and sociopolitical contours of cyberspace, as well as technology law and policy and their implications for our society. Our aim is to build the capacity of young professionals, students and ecosystem stakeholders around issues of technology law and policy,” said Dr. Daniel Mathew, Director, CCG, NLU Delhi.
“Since its inception, NLU Delhi’s goal has been to look beyond the prescriptive model of legal studies, to mentor new multidisciplinary courses and to encourage research in still nascent specialized fields,” said the Professor Srikrishna Deva Rao, Vice Chancellor of NLU Delhi.
“This orientation has only been strengthened with the implementation of the National Education Policy 2020, the objective of which is to transform interdisciplinary research in higher education institutions (HEIs). This is reflected in the work that our research centers are constantly undertaking,” he added.

“During our work, we realized the barriers that the lack of interdisciplinary learning created for students and practitioners of law. (So the courses) were designed to get the different fields talking to each other, rather than talking to each other in the courtroom. We have forensic pathologists and forensic psychiatrists talking to lawyers and the law, which enhances the learning experience but also has real implications in terms of application to legal practice,” said Maitreyi Misra, Member founder of Project 39A.
