Senior Resident Fellow/ Research Fellow – Financial Regulation and Corporate Law
Vidhi invites applications for the post of Senior Resident Fellow/ Research Fellow for the Financial Regulation and Corporate Law team.
ABOUT THE FINANCIAL REGULATION AND CORPORATE LAW TEAM
The Financial Regulation and Corporate Law team at Vidhi drafts laws and prepares research papers for the Government in several areas of financial regulation and corporate law.
We believe that by providing independent expertise in early stages of law-making and regulation formulation, and in proposing reforms to existing laws, we could have a significant impact in the development of such laws.
Currently there is very little dialogue between policy-makers, lawyers, economists and other academics, needed to provide a solid foundation for this exercise. By providing such a forum for dialogue, Vidhi hopes to plug this significant lacuna and thereby provide a crucial value addition to law and policy-making in this space.
The Senior Resident Fellow/ Research Fellow will work as an integral part of Vidhi and will be required to undertake research and drafting for preparation of reports and lead discussions with the stakeholders.
She/he will also be responsible for identification of potential projects and work towards securing projects for the organization, undertake business development in this area, network with key stakeholders and assume responsibility for the content of the reports.
She/he will report directly to the head of the financial regulation and corporate law team at Vidhi.
