Assistant Professor


Ph. D.


The pursuit of law beganat Kerala Law Academy Law College, Kerala University, Trivandrumfrom where I completed B.A.LL.B. My Masters is in Corporate Laws and Governance including International Business from NALSAR University of Law, Hyderabad. I am currently a research scholar doing Part- time Ph.D. from the Centre for Aerospace and Defense Laws (CADL), NALSAR.I started my career in law in 2009 at my alma mater, KLA.Here I learnt the skills of teaching and the art of communicating effectively from great professors who influenced me greatly.Later, I briefly taught at the P.G. Department of T.N.Dr. Ambedkar Law University, Chennai.

Subsequently, I got an opportunity to join as an Assistant Professor of Law at Saveetha School of Law, SIMATS, Chennai. It was immensely challenging to me as an academician as much as it would have been to my students to analyze and appreciatesubjects like Banking Laws, Company Laws, Jurisprudence, Environmental Laws, Law of Taxation etc. I have also had a prospect to indulge in transdisciplinary studies by conducting legal workshops for School of Nursing Students of SIMATS, Post Graduate Dental students of SIMATS and students of Natesan Institute of Cooperative Management, Chennai.

An ardent mooter throughout my 5-year B.A. LL. B course, I have participated and won various National and International Moot Court competitions. I represented India at the Annual Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot held at Vienna in 2006. These competitions have helped me develop analytical skills and critical legal thinkingthat gives me confidence in teaching. Apart from having attended Faculty Development Programmes and adjudging Moot Court competitions,I have presented and published papers at more than 10 National and International Conferences.If I need to choose one, I would mention that I am the co- author of an article “Position of Maintenance in Indian Law” for e- Newsletter published by Women Lawyer’s Interest Group by the International Bar Association available at My exposure to academics gives me an opportunity to inculcate qualities such as prioritizing the work assigned to me and executing multiple tasks according to need of the hour. I have balanced my time between handling classes, mentoring students and executing certain administrative tasks like organizing conferences, conducting workshops, executing projects,designing courses, acting as secretary of Board of Studies, member of disciplinary committee,election officer during college elections etc. Teaching to me is a heartening experience asI invariably get a chance toparticipate in the learning process along with my students.
