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 Bhoomika Agarwal of Amity Law School, Delhi
Why did you choose to study law?
Four years ago, I could have never thought of entering Law. I had taken science in school and my future plans at that time entailed becoming an engineer and going into civil services. It seemed reasonable to me considering my love for coding and my urge to follow into the footsteps of my family.
However, the process of introspection followed soon, leaving me into a dilemma about my choices. I realised that despite the thrill I got from coding, I could not put myself through four torturous years of engineering.
My brother, then, suggested to me law and I got to researching and found it to be quite fascinating. Hence, the journey of law began and I have been enjoying it. The thrill I get from reading judgments every day is far greater than I ever got from coding.
Why did you choose to become a Bar & Bench Campus Ambassador?
Bar & Bench has been a great pioneer in bringing legal news to us. I have been following it since the beginning of law school. To get an opportunity to be associated with it is an accomplishment itself.
At the time of applying, I was primarily looking for a writing internship. As a Campus Ambassador, my work consisted of writing articles and to help with the expansion of social outreach. I enjoyed both tasks.
Moreover, my time with the platform helped me to get an insight into the fundamentals of legal journalism. Bar & Bench is doing a wonderful job and I am glad that I got to be a part of it.
What are your plans after graduation?
I haven’t decided on a specific path yet. I have diverse interests and I like to keep myself open to all kinds of work. During the last three years of school, I have done a wide range of activities, ranging from international arbitration moot to internships under criminal lawyers.
It has been a great ride so far and every experience has taught me something. I think I am going to explore other fields as well over the next two years and see what interests me the most.
