Since late last year, 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 Ayushi Singh, a fourth-year student at the National University of Advanced Legal Studies (NUALS).
To be honest, I had not thought about taking up law until my 12th std. I took PCM for my +2 and wanted to go for engineering after that. However, when I gave my decision a second thought, I realized there is nothing exciting or unusual in taking up engineering since most of my cousins and friends were already engineers and I realized I wanted to take up a “road that is less travelled by” (at least in my family) and right after this, I decided to begin my preparation for the law entrances.
One of the main reasons I chose law is because of the diverse career choices that it offers; one could be a litigation lawyer, or join a law firm or become a law professor or write judicial services exams and become a judge, to name a few.
Also, I would like to point out that my parents have always been very supportive of my decisions even if it is something like this one (which is a late decision, considering how most of the students make their career decisions right after 10th std or even before that) and have always encouraged me to go ahead, put in my best and achieve greatness in whatever I do.
Bar & Bench is now definitely a ‘brand’ in the legal fraternity and so when I got to know about the first Bar and Bench Campus Ambassador Program, I knew I had to apply.
From when I joined Bar & Bench as a Campus Ambassador till date, there has never been a day when I did not get to know/read or learn about some or the other development taking place in the legal field and this was pretty much what I had in mind while applying for the CA Program.
Another thing that I really like and appreciate about Bar & Bench is the “Apprentice Lawyer” section which is specially dedicated to the achievements and writings of the budding lawyers spread across law schools in the country.
It really matters a lot to the students when they see their achievements and articles being published on a platform like Bar & Bench where they have the chance of getting noticed by some of the eminent people in the legal fraternity and at times it also helps them bag good internship opportunities.
After graduation, I would like to land up a job in a law firm preferably in the area which I have been interning in all these years. However, looking at the current situation it is difficult to predict how things will actually look like in 2021. Also, at a later point of time, I might go for masters in law.
