Dolashree K. Mysoor

Senior Research Associate
 
B.A. LL.B. (University Law College, Bangalore); LL.M. (University College London)

Dolashree teaches Family Law and Torts. She worked as a research associate with the Centre for Law & Policy Research (CLPR) on the Intersectionality Project where she co-authored the Intersectionality Report and was part of a team that drafted the Equality Bill, 2019 which seeks to provide civil remedies for multiple forms of discrimination. She holds an LLM with a specialism in Jurisprudence & Legal Theory from the University College London. Prior to her LLM, she worked with Azim Premji University as a research associate where she helped develop and deliver courses on law, humanities and governance. Her research work at Azim Premji University focused on the right to education and educational governance in India.

 

Dolashree’s primary research interest is the relationship between law and school education in the Indian context. She is interested in educational theory, constitutional studies, law and politics in India, legal theory, political philosophy and feminist legal theory. Currently, her research work includes building an understanding of how the Supreme Court’s jurisprudence in key educational cases shapes the regulation and governance of public and private educational institutions. Additionally, she is also working on how and why the law needs to adopt a paradigmatic shift to secure the right to education for children with disabilities. Her work also focuses on developing a more granular understanding of ‘consent’ in the law to promote ways in which the law can break away from mononormative frameworks to secure the rights of polyamorous persons in India.”
