The Blog has also featured renowned authors including Cory Doctorow (Former European Director, Electronic Frontier Foundation), Isedua Oribhabor (Business and Human Rights Lead, Access Now), Mathew Chacko (TMT Head, Spice Route Legal), Dr. Subhajit Basu (Associate Professor, University of Leeds), Dhruv Somayajula (Senior Resident Fellow, Vidhi Centre for Legal Policy), Ashutosh Bhagwat (Distinguished Professor of Law, UC Davis School of Law), and Dr. Ishita Das (Assistant Professor, NALSAR).
