NUJS law prof MK Sinha to join ILI Delhi


NUJS Professor of law Manoj Kumar Sinha has been appointed as director of the Indian Law Institute (ILI) Delhi.

Sinha told Legally India that he would join in two weeks but declined to comment further.

After his departure, NUJS will only have two other professors – chair professors Prof Udai Raj Rai and Shamnad Basheer.

Sinha was previously director at Indian Society of International Law between May 2006 and March 2009.

Between 2000 and 2006 he was assistant professor and course coordinator for the postgraduate diploma in human rights, and international humanitarian and refugee laws, at the Indian Society of International Law in Delhi.

Between 2004 and 2005 he was also visiting professor at the Raoul Wallenberg Institute of Human Rights and Humanitarian Law at Lund University in Sweden.

On Monday Legally India had reported that NUJS vice-chancellor Prof Ishwara Bhatt vowed to hire more faculty after the student council and faculty members lodged written protests about the state of faculty at the university.
