Student Research Interest Groups

Under the aegis of SRDC, Student Research Interest Groups (SRIGs) have been created. These are free-entry, free-exit student groups further categorized and classified into sub-groups, each focusing on a subject for research purposes. Currently, SRIGs function with a total strength of 250-260 student members actively participating in a variety of research activities. Each sub-group is monitored by a Coordinator and Co-Coordinator chosen from among the student members.

The following are the SRIGs:

  • Law and Technology
  • International Law
  • Public Law
  • Environmental Law
  • Intellectual Property Rights
  • Business/Finance Laws
  • Alternative Dispute Resolution
  • Law & Interdisciplinary Studies
  • Corporate Law
Critique- A Student Discussion Forum

Critique is a student discussion forum that eliminates hierarchy and initiates such conversations about the most pressing issues that our society faces with the humble aim that discussants may leave the platform with an understanding about a new perspective. The kind of perspective, specifically, that can neither be gained from books nor from lectures. Where the forum does not press strongly regarding the achievement of goals, it places much greater emphasis on method. The forum ensures that it remains open to all views expressed by students and this openness is designed to strike at the root of various prejudices, misconceptions and stereotypes that often remain embedded in our minds unless challenged and questioned.

Critique Cinephile Circle

Cinephile, as part of the Critique discussion forum, is a forum for people who enjoy interesting films. Its aim is to help students cultivate and sustain interest in film that are of social and political relevance. Cinephile, selects movies that have and will stand the test of time because of their exceptional quality. The circle encourages group participation and it often resorts to poll to decide which film to screen.
