This series of interviews is meant to turn the spotlight on these hardworking and dedicated individuals.

(Edited excerpts)

Why did you choose to study law?

While I was in class 12th, I was clueless about my future plans. My parents were lawyers but I never tried to think about law as a career. After scoring well in class 12th, I took up admission in Delhi University in BCom (H), but could not find excitement in it.

I decided to give a try to CLAT and try to find my interest in law. While I was preparing for CLAT, I met some amazing teachers who made me fall in love with law and its never-ending possibilities and I was convinced to enter this field.

In CLAT 2018, I secured Rank 1533, way below my expectations. I was heartbroken, however, after a lot of research, my parents convinced me to take up admission in Nirma University. Today, I fall in love with law every day. From a clueless Delhi University dropout, to a confident young law student, I thrive for a better version of myself every day.

Why did you choose to become a Bar & Bench Campus Ambassador?

While preparing for CLAT, I was told to follow legal updates and news. I was recommended Bar&Bench by my CLAT Mentor for the same, and since then, I have been regularly reading this blog.

It’s quick, easy to comprehend and gives detailed analysis of latest legal updates. When I saw the call inviting the Campus Ambassadors for Bar&Bench, I wanted to be a part of this family since I owe the foundations of my legal knowledge to it.

Today, I have successfully encouraged a lot of my friends to actually follow this blog and keep themselves way ahead of mediocrity.

What are your plans after graduation?

I have developed a keen interest in FinTech Law, Finance Law, Investment, Equity and General Corporate Law. I plan to enter this field. I am deliberating with my mind over doing an MBA to help accelerate my career in Corporate Law and Finance.

I plan to set up a firm with my father after some years of experience. My primary goal is to either crack CAT in my final year or secure a job in a Tier-1 law firm.
