Herbert Smith Freehills and the University of Oxford are conducting the tenth edition of the International Lecture Programme (ILP) at National Law Institute University, Bhopal, from 18 to 22 March.
ILP is a one-week course conducted by Chris Parsons (Chairman, India Practice, Herbert Smith Freehills) and Timothy Endicott (Professor of Legal Philosophy, University of Oxford) at top Indian law schools, covering cross-border M&A, English public law and common law and Indian constitutional law. Every year, more than 140 students from the top Indian law schools attend the ILP. Earlier editions of ILP have taken place at NLSIU, Bangalore; NALSAR Hyderabad; NLU Delhi; NLU Jodhpur; NUJS Kolkata; Jindal Global Law School and Symbiosis Law School, Pune.
Chris Parsons, Chairman of the firm's India Practice, commented, "It is a real treat for me and Timothy to teach outstanding Indian law students – their engagement with the programme is fantastic and it is received as an excellent opportunity for them to gain exposure to the practical aspects of cross border M&A and learn from a scholar of Timothy's stature. We are proud to have conducted the international lecture programme for the last ten years in India and look forward to future editions of the ILP."
As part of the firm's wider commitment to India, Herbert Smith Freehills continues to support various initiatives in India including:
On 1st February, the firm had hosted its inaugural flagship event, the Client Academy India.
