Successful First Week of Classes held Online in the Summer Semester 2020!

  • The first week of classes has been successfully conducted online in the ILF Summer Semester 2020 from 14 to 17 April 2020. 

We are happy to note that our students from both the LL.M. Finance and LL.M. International Finance programs have been attending online lectures hosted by our "Virtual Classroom" with enthusiasm and utmost willingness to learn despite the current limitations which we face due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Our lecturers have been putting to good use their newly-acquired skills of holding classes via remote teaching facilities and putting great efforts to ensure as far as possible a conducive learning experience for our students.
