About the Centre
The Centre of Business and Financial Laws (CBFL) at National Law University, Delhi (NLUD) was established to develop intellectual leadership and capabilities in banking, capital markets, and other financial services.
Previously known as the Centre for Banking and Financial Laws, it has expanded its scope to include allied areas relating to business law. It seeks to engage public and private stakeholders to work together on an exchange of ideas, policy recommendations, and allied regulatory issues. It also aims to generate scholarship and work as a think tank for the robustness and soundness of the business sector.
