Daksha Fellowship is India’s first fellowship for lawyers; it is a unique one-year, residential program at the intersection of technology, law and business — with a novel curriculum developed by internationally renowned faculty, industry experts and practitioners.
Daksha Fellowship offers two specializations: Technology Law and Policy and Disputes and Regulatory Practice. These specializations have been crafted to train professionals for a rapidly growing technology sector, a highly regulated political economy, and a fast-changing dispute resolution landscape in India.
The Technology Law and Policy Pathway consists of pioneering courses on data protection, information technology and cybersecurity regulations, telecommunications law and other expertise areas required for the digital age. The Disputes and Regulatory Practice Pathway is the first of its kind in India, offering an insight into disputes and conflict from the lens of the regulatory state, in particular.
Apart from foundational courses on remedies, procedure and evidence, corporate governance, and competition law, fellows can choose to specialize even further, opting for clusters on advanced disputes resolution, infrastructure and sustainability, and corporate and financial regulations.
Daksha Fellowship also offers a focused internship program to channelize industry exposure and aid students with expert know-how. Apart from intensive bootcamps and experiential labs, the Fellowship also offers students skills to build toolkits for effective communication in the digital age.
