Credit Courses in Public Policy
The credit course in Public policy looks at the myriad challenges in policy making and implementation, and examines feasible alternatives involving adjusting and course-correction. With a pool of a diverse faculty comprising of academicians and practitioners, our credit courses involve a confluence of incisive analysis of social issues plaguing our society and robust, evidence driven solutions to bring about changes. Greater recognition of diversity and importance of analyzing processes, context, and possible outcomes is stressed upon. Sub national and transnational forces shaping the way we look at institutions and their role is deliberated. The courses offer better understanding of policies framed by governments, and how they change over time.

Modules that we offer:
This course looks at the history of legal process with an understanding of various legal concepts. The intersection of the fields of law and economics helps to both define justice in terms of efficiency, and to predict the effects of legal rules, and is an excellent tool to analyze laws.
Offering a more holistic approach to the study of economic theory, this module explores basic economic theory in Keynesian, as well as the Chicago and Austrian Economic schools of thought. The intersection of economics and public policy helps to understand both--the role policy plays in creating a conducive environment for economic growth, and the role individuals play in shaping policy.
While Business Studies courses in India sufficiently explore economic and management concepts, our module shifts focus to the policy landscape that examines how businesses are affected by policy decisions and the role governments in a market-based economy.

”The pedagogy and the literature were the best aspect of this course. Pedagogy because it truly followed the Socratic method, thereby allowing each of us to contribute to the entire learning experience. And the literature, not necessarily because all of it was agreeable, but because it introduced us to an alternative set of reasoning to explain market and societal phenomena and an approach to solve society’s problems. It has definitely contributed to me refining and rethinking the way I look at public issues and has broadened my knowledge base to reason well.”~ Aditya Patel

The mixture of economics, law and politics that most classes had has been very different from the rest of my study at NLS. While we have studied things in each field, their integration has been very useful in giving insight. This course was concerned with developing a rational understanding of a wide variety of areas and focused on bringing out the meaning or incentives created by law. The course highlighted the gaps that exist in my knowledge, from behavioral economics to rule of law.~ Suranjan Shukla
