Eesvan Krishnan's bio

I am a graduate student in law studying land acquisition in India and I'd be very interested in being in touch with other researchers of whatever discipline who are working on the same or similar issues, or more generally on Indian legal history.

My specific subject is the history of the law governing land acquisition for companies in India, from 1857 to 2007. This study is for a doctorate in law at the University of Oxford. For the calendar year 2010, I am based at the Centre for Policy Research, New Delhi, as a visiting fellow.

Prior to this year, I read for a BCL and an MPhil in law at Oxford. Prior to that, I completed a conjoint law and commerce degree at the University of Auckland, New Zealand, and clerked at the Supreme Court of New Zealand.
