It gives us immense pleasure to share that NUJS is going to establish a Centre for Technology, Gaming and Sports Law to carry out research in the field of technology and entertainment. The primary objective of the Centre is to promote research to bring clarity to the regulatory regime surrounding this field. The Centre will also conduct lectures, training programs, and courses for students as well as lawyers to enhance their knowledge base.
The Centre at NUJS is to be set up in collaboration with Gameskraft – India’s first gaming company to build an ISO-certified gaming platform. As part of the MoU to be signed, Gameskraft will provide a grant of Rs. 1 Crore to the Centre along with sponsoring research positions at the Centre as well as a gold medal in a related subject.
Through various research, training programs, and courses, the Centre aims to bridge the gap between the laws and their implementation. The Centre shall actively promote dialogue and discourse in the core as well as the allied areas of the subject. Sharing his views and vision regarding the Centre, the Vice Chancellor said, "The online gaming industry requires proper training to remain updated about the regulations. WBNUJS is setting up the Centre through a grant of Rs 1 crore from Gameskraft, an online gaming platform, and it will also sponsor one gold medal and research positions at the Centre. The Centre will carry out research in the field of technology entertainment and sports laws and will hold lectures and training programmes to equip students with a new genre of laws.”
We are hopeful that this collaboration and the initiative will go a long way in opening channels of communication among the various stakeholders and will provide a platform for legal research and development in the field.
