NLU Delhi’s Project39A launched two new online courses on forensics and mental health in collaboration with Eleos Justice at Monash Law School, Australia. The courses - Decoding Forensics for Legal Professionals and Forensic Mental Health and Criminal Justice aim at imparting an understanding of the use and limitations of forensics science in criminal law and relevance of mental disability in the criminal justice system, respectively.

Maitreyi Misra, founding member of Project 39A, said, “In the course of our work, we’ve realized the barriers that a lack of interdisciplinary learning was creating for students and practitioners of law. Thus, the courses have been designed with the purpose of getting the different fields to speak to each other, rather than at each other in the courtroom. We have forensic scientists and forensic psychiatrists speaking to lawyers and the law, which enhances the learning experience but also has real world consequences in terms of the application to legal practice.”

The course touches on key contemporary themes of information technology and cyber laws, privacy and data protection, emerging technology, platform governance, cybersecurity and information security, intellectual property and technology, and competition law and technology.

Our aim is to build the capacity of young professionals, students and stakeholders in the ecosystem around technology law and policy issues.”

“NLU Delhi’s focus since inception has been to look beyond normative legal studies patterns and frame new multidisciplinary courses and encourage research in specialized areas that are still nascent,” said Professor Srikrishna Deva Rao, Vice Chancellor, NLU Delhi.
