Vivek Mukherjee

I completed my Bachelor's degree in Law from NLIU, Bhopal (2015); further pursuing L.LM with a specialization in Human Rights from NLSIU, Bangalore (2016). It was during this year that I worked as a teaching assistant under Prof. M.P. Singh and Prof. M.K.  Ramesh, which created an affinity towards teaching. In 2016, I joined COLS, UPES; where I taught for about a year. In 2017, I joined NALSAR. Animal Law, International Law, and Environmental Law are my areas of interest. At NALSAR, I am co-ordinating Law and Other Things (LAOT), India's first law blog, and the Animal Law Center which creates curriculum and runs research projects on Animal Laws.
 

As a student, I have actively been involved with theatre arts. In my spare time, I like to work on my culinary and percussionist skills.
