India is one of the fastest growing economies of the world, continuously faced with challenges of justice, inequity, exclusion and progress. The study of Public Policy informs the state as to how it could respond to the new dynamic challenges that emerge in the society. As every legislation require clear policy formulation, there is demand for trained professionals who will be equipped to design, implement and evaluate policies and programmes. We derive inspiration from our transformative Constitution, while addressing the challenges of diverse national needs.

We train young professionals to become policy practitioners capable of supporting inclusive and sustainable development focusing on the interface between policy and law as our niche area. We emphasise a dialectical pedagogy that encourages students to question the complexities in the practice of public policy arising from real-life situations of people from a diverse set of social and economic backgrounds.

National Law School of India University (NLSIU), Bengaluru, a premier Law University in the country, offers Master’s Programme in Public Policy – a two-year residential interdisciplinary programme with a special thrust on law as an interface between inclusive sustainable development and public policy.
