Mumbai: The Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS) held a special convocation’ for its first batch of 12 graduating students of the LLM in ‘Access to Success’ programme.

The Dalai Lama was the chief guest. He awarded the LLM degrees and distributed the academic awards and prizes for the degree and diploma programmes.
