2. Daksha Fellowship in Technology, Law and Policy
3. Ph.D. in 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.
