We have reached out to him, BML Munjal and JGLS for comment.

Baruah had become a full professor this year after six years at JGLS as an associate professor.

Before that he was a research scholar at the University College London for four years, where he also completed a PhD.

After graduating from Nalsar Hyderabad in 2005, followed by a BCL in Law from Oxford University in 2006, he then practised for two years before the Supreme Court of India, entering academia proper in 2008 as an assistant professor at NUJS Kolkata.
