युक्ती हीने विचारे तु धर्महानि प्रजायते

Dr. Vijay Kishor Tiwari


My areas of interest are critical legal studies, history, and jurisprudence. I am passionate about decolonizing legal education so that law schools in India must not remain sites of epistemicide. I am currently Co-ordinating Justice Radha Binod Pal Centre for Critical Legal Studies, which is dedicated to igniting the students’ interest in critical legal studies. I am a person with disability. The lived experience of being a person with disability informs my pedagogy and classroom engagements. At NUJS, I played an instrumental role in drafting The WBNUJS Policy for Persons with Disability,2022. This Policy gives students and employees with disability at NUJS the right to reasonable accommodation, accessibility, and non-discrimination. This is the first such policy adopted by any National Law University. The question of the inherent human dignity of persons with disabilities informs the oeuvre of this policy.
I have done my Ph.D. from the National Law School of India University, Bangalore, on the topic ‘Civilizing Mission or Crusade for Human Rights: Critical Study of ‘Responsibility to Protect’ As An Evolving Norm in International Law’ under the supervision of Dr. Aparna Chandra.
