Law, policy and business for a digital world
Daksha Fellowship is India’s first law and technology fellowship program, and implements a unique pedagogic approach that caters to law graduates and other professionals with a disciplinary understanding of law.
The fellowship has been conceptualized as a one-year, residential program with a contemporary curriculum formulated by internationally renowned faculty in collaboration with leading legal practitioners and industry experts.
A focused internship program to channelize industry exposure, pedagogic innovation that enhances the presence of domain experts and global exposure through immersion programs and institutional partnerships are some of the key highlights of the program. Fellows will also build toolkits to effectively communicate in the digital age, and enhance their expertise and wellbeing through experiential labs and intensive bootcamps. By combining academic rigor with top-notch curriculum design, industry exposure and global engagement, the fellowship guides young lawyers and policy professionals to find their own Daksha, abilities and skill-sets that help them stand out.
Daksha, meaning abilities and skills, is the philosophy that permeates every activity at the Fellowship. The skillset pillar of the fellowship is advanced through specially curated labs, in addition to the mandatory internship and learning bootcamps. These labs mould Daksha fellows into well-rounded and versatile individuals.
Work and Well-being Lab (WoWeL): WoWeL is a unique, thoughtfully designed initiative to prepare young lawyers to develop personal effectiveness skills while at the same time equipping them to take care of their own mental and emotional well-being. This specially designed curriculum has been formulated keeping the Delta-model of lawyering in mind and encompasses components such as critical thinking, mindfulness, storytelling, leadership skills, minimalism, poetry for professionals, dance movement therapy, and animal therapy.
Communication Lab: The Communication Lab aims to enhance writing and speaking skills in diverse professional contexts (legal, business and policy) and for diverse audiences (technical and non-technical). It is activity driven and is designed to teach how to write academic papers, policy briefs, op-eds and e-mails, as also to speak in professional settings.
Bootcamps: Bootcamps are intensive learning modules designed to encourage practical and hands-on training in legal, policy and skill-based areas. They are hosted by eminent industry practitioners and think tanks. With targeted and quality learning outcomes as their objective, these bootcamps usually happen over a period of three to five days.
All Daksha Fellows will undertake a mandatory eight-week internship with law ?rms, corporate organizations, think tanks, and not-for-pro?ts. Every individual will be mentored by a dedicated career development team. Upon graduation, students will be equipped to pursue a successful career in:
