Over the last two years, we have built a network of Campus Ambassadors across more than fifty law schools all over India. These law students have been providing us with information on campus events and activities, and also sharing legal articles.
This series of interviews is meant to turn the spotlight on these hardworking and dedicated individuals.
In this edition, we speak with Sirisha Prasad, a third-year law student at the National Law University Jodhpur.
Why did you choose to study law?
One of the questions which has been asked since my first year and something which I believe is a little difficult to answer. I think it is an influencing career option as whatever the era maybe, law always make a difference in the society.
The legal profession is one of the most lucrative industries in today’s society because of its varied fields. At the heart of the legal professional’s role is client service, thus, it provides a remarkable opportunity to profess the religion of 'rights', which is almost always violated in some or the other manner.
What made you apply for the Campus Ambassador post at Bar & Bench?
Every community that ever stands on top requires a lot of social media awareness to be able to reach a larger target audience, which I believe Bar and Bench fulfils efficiently.
Further, the opportunity to learn the art of legal journalism has always been an area of interest and thought this opportunity will be the first step towards exploring my interest.
What are your plans after completing law?
I am interested in exploring the fields of technology and media law but do not have a concrete plan as yet. I think in the coming years I will have a better idea as what I want to do.
