As a first law student in India's one of the finest law colleges, with a passion for exploring all sides of the legal and policy landscape, my interests span a range of areas, including Criminal Law, International Law, and humanitarian works, and I am particularly drawn to the world of litigation. In addition to my academic pursuits, I am an active participant in webinars and other events that provide opportunities to learn about and engage with legal and social issues. I am also eager to represent organizations on a student level, working with others to promote awareness and understanding of the law and its impact on society. I look forward to learning from and collaborating with others who are dedicated to making a positive difference in the world through their legal work.
