Policy Drafting Competition

LHSS Collective of MNLU Mumbai is inviting registrations for the Inaugural Edition of its Policy Drafting Competition in association with PLR Chambers, Right to Education Resource Center (IIM Ahmedabad) and EBC-SCC Online. Registrations close on 15th October 2023, 11:59 PM IST.


Maharashtra National Law University Mumbai, established under Maharashtra Act No. VI of 2014, is one of the premier National Law Universities in India. The Act envisaged to establish a National Law University in Maharashtra to impart advanced legal education and promote society-oriented research in legal studies for the advancement of societal life of the people in the country.


The LHSS Blog of MNLU Mumbai, established in January 2022, metamorphosed into the LHSS Collective after 11 months of its inception, as the founding vision of the blog stirred us to expand our operations, outreach and team. The LHSS Blog was formed due to an observable lack of platforms in the global south which were dedicated to studying the intersection between Law and Social Sciences.


The LHSS (Law, Humanities and Social Sciences) Collective is coming out with its first edition of Policy Drafting Competition.

As unscrupulous digital data collection poses a threat to our privacy and erodes trust in an ever intrusive digital healthcare system, a policy addressing digital healthcare privacy becomes critical. One that safeguards personal data, ensures informed consent, mandates robust security measures, and upholds legal compliance, all of which are essential for ethical and secure digital healthcare practices.

This competition offers a valuable opportunity for individuals to learn the nuances of policy drafting and hone their skills in that respect. Participants will gain insights into the entire drafting process, from identifying issues to striking a balance between idealism and pragmatism. Policy drafting enhances students’ capacity to observe current legal issues, propose solutions, and broaden their knowledge, analytical skills, and interpretation of the law.
