To prepare candidates for doctoral research in public policy and socio-legal research that is not limited by uni-disciplinary training.
To provide an inter-disciplinary perspective on the study of law and governance, by introducing the basic concepts, debates and the now extensive literature on governance and legal issues, emanating from the disciplines of political science, economics, public administration / public policy, sociology and jurisprudence.
To equip students with the skills necessary to undertake research in areas of public policy, including a special focus on the legal implications of these issues, by developing their expertise in these diverse disciplinary areas, and so to enable a more complex and multifaceted approach to issues of governance, public policy and law.
To acquaint the qualified practitioner – policy-maker, civil servant, Lawyer or NGO worker --with the major issues in this area.

its multi-disciplinary orientation in both course design and teaching plan;
its substantive academic content;
its distinctiveness when compared to available courses in other Indian Universities; and
its coherence as a programme of study with a policy-orientation.
