Shreya Prakash

Shreya graduated from the National Law School of India University, Bangalore, in 2016, and completed the BCL at Oxford with a focus on the law and philosophy of corporate and financial laws. Since graduating, Shreya has been working with the Vidhi Centre for Legal Policy. She conducts research on, and advises Governments on corporate and financial law reform projects. Currently, Shreya is advising the Government of India on second-generation insolvency law reforms.

‘In the past decade, there has been increasing realisation that economic progress must be inclusive and equitable. Developing countries like India are focussing on attaining financial inclusion and increasing corporate social responsibility while ensuring higher investment and growth. I believe that well-designed laws play an important role in achieving these goals, and thus, wish to work on law and policy in the corporate and finance area.

The OIC and Zaiwalla scholarship have given me the incredible opportunity to read for the BCL while at Somerville College. It is inspiring to be part of the institution where some of the most pathbreaking women of the twentieth and twenty-first century studied. I hope that this experience will help me develop my skills and broaden my perspective so that I can contribute to corporate & financial law and policy reform in a meaningful way.’
