Visit to Asian Law School

Interacting with law students

On Thursday, 23 November 2017, Biju K. Nair (Executive Director) and Sukarn Singh Maini (Counsel) visited Asian Law School to teach law students about practical aspects of being a lawyer and our work on protecting your digital freedoms.

We discussed how to deal with clients, issues of software patents, licensing, freedom of speech, privacy, net neutrality, Aadhaar and the Information Technology Act, 2000 through a practical interactive session on how to deal with real life instances of these issues. We ended the session with a guide on how to protect one's privacy while browsing the internet through live demonstration of tools that can be used to analyze who is gathering your data, how to block web trackers and how to anonymize oneself online. The overall session lasted approximately two hours.
