MoU signed for PA Sangma fellowship

The fellowship will allow NLSIU students to conduct research in Meghalaya as a result of this cooperation, providing a holistic experience on the current challenges of law and policy on the ground.

Shillong:

Minister-in-Charge of Law, James PK Sangma facilitated the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the Government of Meghalaya and the National Law School of India University (NLSIU), Bengaluru, for the PA Sangma Fellowship for Legal and Policy Research on Monday.

The fellowship will allow NLSIU students to conduct research in Meghalaya as a result of this cooperation, providing a holistic experience of the current challenges of law and policy on the ground.

It will also provide capacity building programmes and training for law officers and other departments of the government.

“Starting from research and consultations to implementation and monitoring, governance is indeed a long process,” said Sangma at the event.

“This will be a great learning experience for the fellows because the transition they would have made from the classroom environment to understanding the ground realities of law and policy in implementation, is something which is important,” he said.

Sudhir Krishnaswamy, Vice-Chancellor of NLSIU, also highlighted the need for providing exposure to students, which will allow them to gain a practical and grounded experience for the future.

“We often have many ideas which we discuss. But I am highly encouraged by the fact that the Meghalaya government and James Sangma have taken active steps to translate important ideas into action,” Krishnaswamy said.

“Such steps are important in bringing vibrance to the environment of education because it allows institutes to engage practically with the government on important policy matters,” he added.

Cyril V. Diengdoh, Secretary Law Department, Government of Meghalaya, Nigam Nuggehalli, Registrar NLSIU and Sony Pellissery, Course Director Institute of Public Policy were also present at the function.
