Lawyer and technology hobbyist. I graduated with honours in law and business administration from National Law University, Jodhpur. Following this, I was employed by Thomson Reuters where I was mostly involved with drafting and negotiating complex ICT agreements (and a smattering of others). Being drawn irresistibly to technology since a young age, this proved to be a boon, since I could finally see a connection between my vocation and avocation. I decided to pursue this path academically at Leiden University through an LLM in Advanced Studies in Law and Digital Technologies – which is where I’m spending most of my time right now. I started this website as a natural follow-up to my passion for the field, and I do hope you like it!
My LinkedIn profile, in case you need more information/want to contact me.
I always had a thing for IT and it was more than just a pet subject. Thus, it became a personal quest to discover how to combine my two seemingly distant passions in law and information technology from the time I was in law school. I graduated from University of Colombo with a second class upper honours and then went on to become an Attorney-at-Law of the Supreme Court of Sri Lanka. Cranking my infatuation with IT up a notch, I obtained my B.Sc. in IT from Middlesex University with a first class honours. Afterwards, I worked at the Attorney General’s Department, Sri Lanka for a little over 2.5 years first as an Apprentice and then as an Attorney in its Corporations Division where I mostly worked with constitutional law, administrative law and industrial law. I left my job to finally embrace my deep-seated desire to study further in law and technology where I ended up at Leiden University pursing my LLM advanced program in law & digital technologies. To cut a long story short, this website represents a baby-step in trailblazing a legal tradition within the forever-changing digital landscape.
