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 Yathansh Joshi, a third -year law student at the West Bengal National University of Juridical Sciences at Kolkata.
Why did you choose to study law?
Since my early days at school, I have always had an appeal for politics and administration. With time, I came about to realise that the fundamental facet through which I could excel in administration was by understanding the legal system that governs the society.
Law School provides one with the best of opportunities for all kinds of exposure, which is quintessential to equip oneself capable for any kind of public office or administrative job.
Additionally, the study and operation of law and its effect on society always intrigued and attracted me. Looking back, I think it is one of the best decisions I could have ever made in my life, thanks to all my teachers and my parents who introduced me to this field.
What made you apply for the Campus Ambassador post at Bar & Bench?
At the very beginning of my term at NUJS, I came in touch with seniors who introduced me, amongst other things, to Bar and Bench and its significance in legal news and information.
After I became aware of this Campus Ambassador program in my second year, I was determined to apply for it in my third year because I eagerly wanted to have the chance to participate in the activities of Bar and Bench.
I am really very glad to have received this chance this year.
What are your plans after completing law?
Currently, I wish to procure a job in the near future, and later on venture into administration as per the opportunities that crop up. However, I am always more inclined towards keeping an open mind with respect to these things and have not cemented any specific plan lest it should limit my ability to accept new challenges and openings.
