Law School Workshop Series: Session #1

The Law School Workshop Series – organized by the Jurisprudence and Political Philosophy Discussion Group, NLSIU in association with Kautilya Society (NLSIU-chapter) – will be hosting workshops to develop working papers in legal and political philosophy. In the workshop, a paper and a response to this paper will be presented to initiate group discussion of the same. The lead discussant will then shares their thoughts and comments on the structure of the article – followed by an open discussion of the nuances and substantive content of the paper.

The initiative aims to promote a culture of research and writing among law students. We invite students, academicians, and faculty members to read the papers and share substantive and constructive comments with the authors in the sessions. 

Over the next few sessions, the Law School Workshop Series will be discussing the following papers:

  1. Politics of Difference (here) – by Shivi Dangi (24 July 2021)
    Prof. Sushmita Pati has kindly agreed to lead the discussion. She will be commenting on the structure and substance of the paper, so as to make it publishable. The paper chosen for discussion is an interesting read and Professor’s insights will prove to be very helpful for anyone who is keen on writing on the subject or is interested in exploring its nuances.
