Herbert Smith head, Oxford law dean lecture at NLU-Delhi and NUJS, perhaps Nalsar 2012

Herbert Smith partner Chris Parsons and Oxford Professor and law faculty dean Timothy Endicott will kick off a now-annual lecture series at NLU Delhi followed by five days of lectures at NUJS Kolkata with plans to hit Nalsar Hyderabad next year.

On 19 February 2011 India practice head Parsons (pictured left) will hold one lecture at NLU Delhi on the takeover of Corus by Tata Steel. “The infrastructure at [NLU Delhi] is amazing,” said Parsons. “They have a wonderful mooting hall and an extraordinary lecture hall. [Vice-chancellor Ranbir Singh has] done a great job in Hyderabad and I have no doubt he’ll do a great job in Delhi too.”


Between 21 and 25 February Parsons and Endicott (pictured right) will then visit NUJS Kolkata and hold five four-hour-long lectures addressing between 45 or 50 students, Parsons told Legally India.

He would be lecturing on cross border mergers and acquisitions and running a module on negotiation skills, while Endicott would lecture on private law and English public law, which would be followed by an internal moot.

“It’s very interactive,” he said. “We want them up negotiating, discussing points, writing things on the board, etcetera.”

“Timothy and I are keen that it should become an annual fixture – we may still decide what we present on [in future],” said Parsons, noting that Nalsar Hyderabad was currently the top candidate for hosting the lecture series in 2012.

Herbert Smith’s former senior partner Edward Walker-Arnott would also continue with an annual lecture series visiting NLSIU Bangalore for five days on 21 March, having previously been to NUJS and to Nalsar, according to Parsons.

Allen & Overy and best-friend-firm Trilegal ran a finance course at NLSIU in July last year, having planned to rotate it to Nalsar this year.
