About LHSS COllective

The LHSS Blog of MNLU Mumbai, initiated in January 2022 metamorphosed into The LHSS Collective after 11 months of its inception as the founding vision of the blog stirred us to expand our operations, outreach and team. The LHSS Blog was formed due to an observable lack of platforms in the global south which were dedicated to studying the intersection between Law and Social Sciences.

About the Competition

The LHSS (Law, Humanities & Social Sciences) Collective is coming out with its first edition of Policy Drafting Competition.

As unscrupulous digital data collection poses a threat to our privacy and erodes trust in an ever intrusive digital healthcare system, a policy addressing digital healthcare privacy becomes critical. One that safeguards personal data, ensures informed consent, mandates robust security measures, and upholds legal compliance, all of which are essential for ethical and secure digital healthcare practices.

This competition offers a valuable opportunity for individuals to learn the nuances of policy drafting and hone their skills in that respect. Participants will gain insights into the entire drafting process, from identifying issues to striking a balance between idealism and pragmatism. Policy drafting enhances students’ capacity to observe current legal issues, propose solutions, and broaden their knowledge, analytical skills, and interpretation of the law.
