Dr. Anindita accomplished her Ph.D. (doctoral) from the Law School, University of Edinburgh (United Kingdom) in the area of corporate law and governance. Her research addresses critical concerns in corporate governance, more specifically gender diversity. This essentially speaks about her inclination towards institutionalizing diversity not only as an issue of equality and social justice, but also as a forward-looking functional attribute of strategic concern. Much in conformity, she is a contributor/author in the Scottish Feminist Judgement Project, and has worked actively in the Athena Swan and the Diversity and Inclusion committee at the University of Edinburgh. While she is interested to pursue further research in this domain (not only in the context of companies, but any organization and institution to which this holds no lesser relevance), her core interests lie in corporate and commercial laws.

Prior to joining NLSIU, she has worked at Jindal Global Law School (OP Jindal University), where she taught courses on company law, FEMA (foreign exchange management law), comparative public law, and property law. Prior to Jindal, she worked at NALSAR teaching courses on FEMA (foreign exchange management law), “entrepreneurship and law”, and “strategic diversity”. She also works as an external evaluator and supervisor for masters dissertations at the University of Edinburgh. Following her graduation from National Law University, Jodhpur (BBA.LLB) with a specialized Corporate Law Hons., she has worked with the law firm Majmudar & Partners (Mumbai), for more than four years.
