Betsy Rajasingh has worked as Assistant Professor at the Saveetha School of Law, Chennai, where she taught courses on Intellectual Property Rights Law, Environmental Law, Constitutional Law and Torts. She also worked as a Legal Executive with Joyce A. Tan & Partners, Singapore, and as a Legal Associate with HB & Partners, Chennai. Besides legal research and drafting, she assisted in presenting cases in the High Court of Madras and the lower courts on issues pertaining to property law, contract law, matrimonial disputes, intellectual property law and employment law.

Intellectual property law is her principal area of teaching and research interest, which also led to her studying the implications of technology and law on the limits and exceptions to copyright relating to education in her PhD. The study further resulted in the publication of her book titled ‘Digital Copyright Law – A Comparative Study of the Limitations and Exceptions Relating to Education‘ with Thomson Reuters. She has also published in the Journal of Intellectual Property Law and Practice.

She is currently studying the law relating to geographical indications (GI) and its effect on securing the interests of the local communities that actually produce the GI, and looks forward to furthering her research work here at NLS.
