Anwita Dinkar is a second-year PhD student at Sciences Po, Paris. She has a master’s degree in Law, and a research master’s degree in Sociology. Anwita’s interdisciplinary research seeks to understand the social foundations of law in societies. Her research focusses on how ordinary people access law and build legality in their everyday lives in India. She studies this primarily through the theoretical framework of legal consciousness studies and legal pluralism, addressing how lawyers, legal intermediaries, and ordinary citizens frame their own and each other’s legal consciousness in their everyday lives.
