Law and Technology Research at the Centre for the Study of Law and Governance (CSLG), JNU
CSLG comprises of ten faculty members drawn from law, sociology, political science, economics and social work. It runs a PhD program on law and governance. The Centre adopts a multidisciplinary approach to framing research and teaching on the relationship between law and governance. The study of governance, in its various forms and at different sites, is central to several contemporary issues: the reform of public institutions and public law; the creation and establishment of procedures and rules that lead to greater efficiency, transparency, and accountability; and the challenge of making governance more inclusive and participatory through the strengthening of democracy and civil society.
The Law and Technology Research Group (LTRG) comprises of professors and research scholars in CSLG who work on various public policy and governance aspects of technologies. The two primary activities of the group are hosting a Law and Tech Conversation Series (EXALT) and undertaking legislative and policy analysis.
