POSTGRADUATE PROGRAMS

SaiU’s School of Law offers a one-year LL.M program in Regulatory Studies and Daksha Fellowship in Technology Law.

The LL.M. program and the Daksha Fellowship are designed with entirely different objectives, even though they overlap at many points.
The main goal of the Daksha Fellowship team is to train practitioners in the field of Technology Law and regulatory law, with emphasis on methods of dispute resolution and court craft.
LL.M. at SaiU is a postgraduate course designed to create academic leaders for the twenty-first century. The one-year postgraduate program is ideal for those looking to deepen their knowledge of regulatory laws. The curriculum and pedagogy of the program are unique and future-ready and will help the participants of this program anchor the development of regulatory laws in India.
We also nurture the teaching and research skills of the participants.

The one-year LL.M. in regulatory studies at the School of Law consists of foundational, specialization, and optional courses to give a thorough exposure to regulatory law. You can broaden and deepen your knowledge and understanding of law while specializing in regulatory studies. The program will open up access to several rewarding occupations that require specialist expertise by equipping you with the best intellectual tools, real-world knowledge, accurate data, and cutting-edge resources.
In addition to completing the mandatory and recommended modules, you must complete and submit your dissertation within the deadline. The dissertation will improve your intellectual, critical, and practical skills required to practice regulatory laws.

We follow a trimester model for the LL.M. program. One academic year comprises three trimesters, and each trimester will have 12 weeks.

It is a one-year intense academic program with no internship opportunities. In today’s legal job market, where employers look for applicants with specialized training, your one-year LL.M. degree will raise your chances of landing the job of your dreams.

Yes, you must complete and submit the dissertation to receive the degree.

The School of Law has a team of esteemed faculty members who represent a variety of fields and sectors in today’s diverse and fast-expanding legal arena. They are well-known for their dynamic and interdisciplinary approach to legal education. Our faculty are original contributors to the growth of knowledge and are career academics, researchers, core industry practitioners, and consultants.

Through the one-year LL.M. program, we create academic leaders for the 21st century who can effectively respond to changes in the legal domain, construct new theoretical frameworks that explain and critique such changes, and innovate by leveraging technology and data.
Law schools in India do not offer courses on regulation, be it at the undergraduate or postgraduate level. Hence, our faculty members combine academic and practical expertise in regulatory studies and help students understand and interpret the regulations that govern today’s complex and rapidly changing world. Thus, the program combines foundational, specialization, and optional courses that provide a deep understanding of regulatory laws.

This one-year program offers our students a unique and engaging platform to strengthen their knowledge, equip themselves with a range of employable skills, and sharpen their minds by getting an in-depth understanding of regulatory laws. In the third trimester, students can choose electives from one of the following clusters: Infrastructure and Sustainable Development, Technology Law and Policy, and Corporate and Financial Regulation.

According to us, career guidance doesn’t start at the end of a program. At SaiU, career guidance is an integral part of every program, and LL.M. is no different. We can help you figure out what you want out of your education and career so that you can make rewarding and futuristic educational and occupational choices.
After completing the program, you will be eligible to apply for relevant Teaching Assistant/ Research Assistant positions at SaiU. We will also guide students interested in pursuing doctoral studies.

You can apply for the program here at apply.saiuniversity.edu.in/school-of-law
