: Rocked by complaints of sexual harassment by its alumni and management, the city’s premier law college National University of Juridical Sciences (NUJS) is set to start a short-term course on prevention of sexual harassment and workplace diversity.

With a panel consisting of top law firms, senior litigators, former women’s commission members and general counsels of multinational companies, the NUJS will be launching the three-month executive programme on sexual harassment prevention and workplace diversity.

The institution made headlines when a student alleged in 2013 that she was sexually harassed by Justice (retired) Ashok Ganguly, then a guest faculty of the NUJS, while she was interning under him.
