Vidhi Centre for Legal Policy: Call for Applications


The Vidhi Centre for Legal Policy (VCLP) (formerly Pre-Legislative Briefing Service) is an independent legal think-tank comprising legal academics from leading universities around the world and practising lawyers based in India. Its mission is to impact legislative design and policy-making in India by conducting high-quality, analytical, evidence-based research across a range of thematic legal topics. It aims to advise government on proposed legislation and its drafting, provide critical analyses of bills and rules before Parliament and state legislatures, draft bespoke reports on specific legal issues of public concern and offer independent policy guidance to the government with a view to creating sound legal and policy frameworks in India. It has worked in the legislative space in India for the last two-and-a-half years and is in the process of establishing itself as a full-time institution based in New Delhi from November 2013.

In keeping with its objectives, Vidhi is currently looking to fill two positions:

1. The Vidhi Fellow of Law and Policy (see eligibility, process and remuneration- here)

2. Vidhi Junior Research Fellow (see eligibility, process and remuneration- here)
