NLSIU Kautilya Society: Constitution, Domicile, and Inclusivity in Indian Legal Education

In late-December, 2021 the NLSIU Kautilya Society had released a comprehensive research brief on the issue of residency or domicile-based affirmative action in National Law Universities (NLUs) to aid with research and discourse on the issue. The brief brought out very pertinent and interesting points of discussion, including those around policy formulation, constitutional perspectives and inclusivity concerns.
