NUJS'16 alumna awarded Columbia Law School's Human Rights Fellowship

In a significant academic recognition, Ms. Namrata Mukherjee from the Class of 2016 has been awarded Columbia Law School's LL.M. Human Right Fellowship Program. She was chosen from an extremely competitive pool of scholars and professionals from across the world for her zeal and vision to bring about positive change to the world. The LL.M. Human Right Fellowship Program is part of Columbia Law School's commitment to educate human rights advocates and scholars. It aims at the annual recruitment and awarding of fellowships to top jurists with extraordinary potential in the field of international human rights who wish to further develop their legal skills and expertise by pursuing a one-year Master of Laws degree. At NUJS, she played a major role in the formulation of the law school's trans policy and was known for her contribution to the university's Legal Aid Society. Her areas of engagement in college included human rights, labour law, inter-disciplinary research, gender, sexuality and the law, and philosophy. Prior to joining Vidhi, she interned with advocates as well as in organisations such as the Alternative Law Forum and Centre for Equity Studies. She worked with the Public Law Team and the Vidhi Aid Team for close to three years and contributed to projects ranging from LGBT+ rights, inclusive education, and data protection. We take great pride and honour in congratulating her on her phenomenal achievement and wishing her the very best in all her future endeavours.
