Dr. Anindita Jaiswal

Associate Professor of Legal Practice

BBA LL.B.; LL.M. (NLU, Jodhpur);

Ph.D. (University of Edinburgh, UK)

Dr. Anindita accomplished her Ph.D. (doctoral) from the Law School, University of Edinburgh (United Kingdom) in the area of corporate law and governance. Her research addresses critical concerns in corporate governance, more specifically gender diversity. This essentially speaks about her inclination towards institutionalizing diversity not only as an issue of equality and social justice but also as a forward-looking functional attribute of strategic concern. Much in conformity, she has worked actively in the Athena Swan and the Diversity and Inclusion committee at the University of Edinburgh. While she is interested to pursue further research in this domain (not only in the context of companies but any organization and institution to which this holds no lesser relevance), her core interests lie in corporate and commercial laws.

In addition to her academic engagement with JGLS, she has worked at NLSIU Bangalore, and NALSAR Hyderabad, teaching courses on Corporate Law, FEMA (foreign exchange management law), “entrepreneurship and law”, and “strategic diversity”. Previously, she has taught courses on business entities, company law and investment law to undergraduate students in Edinburgh and India.

In terms of research work, she has published in reputed journals like the Journal of Corporate Law Studies, Taylor & Francis; and Kluwer Publications. She is a contributor/author to the Scottish Feminist Judgement Project, and has provided her editorial assistance to the book “Procedural Fairness in International Courts and Tribunals”. She has further worked on a published year-long research project sponsored by the National Stock Exchange of India.

Aside from her academic career, she has extensive industry experience having worked with the law firm- Majmudar & Partners (Mumbai), for more than four years, following her graduation from National Law University, Jodhpur (BBA.LLB) with a specialized Corporate Law Hons.
