Prof. Manasi Kumar


Prior to entering academia, she worked as a commercial dispute resolution attorney with well-known law firms in India and the United States, where she was admitted to the Oregon state bar. She had a diverse commercial practice that included construction, oil and gas, government procurements, insurance, and maritime law. She teaches foundational contract law courses, and a self-designed, highly popular elective on commercial contract drafting.

In 2020, she received the O.P. Jindal Global University Research Excellence Award. Most recently, she has convened an ambitious series of conferences on contract law in common law countries. This project was in collaboration with the London Centre for Commercial and Financial Law (in cooperation with the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies, School of Advanced Studies, University of London), and convened experts from across four continents in a detailed comparative study of contract law in the common law world. She is currently editing the series of papers that have resulted from these conferences for an upcoming special double-issue of the Liverpool Law Review, which is a Scopus-indexed journal.
She has a Juris Doctor from Lewis and Clark Law School in the United States, where she was inducted into the Cornelius Honour Society upon her graduation in 2008, an honour given to select graduates by the law school faculty.
