I hold a bachelor’s degree in law from National University of Study and Research in Law, Ranchi and graduated therefrom in 2018 with a Gold Medal for International Law Honors. After my graduation,I got admittedinto the LL.M. program atNALSAR University of Law, Hyderabad. Here I became the recipient forthe Nani A. Palkhivala Memorial Gold Medal for being the overall batch topper for the academic year 2018-19.During my Master’s programI got to work as a Teaching Assistant to Professor AmitaDhanda for the Law and Poverty course. I feel thatthis particularwork assignmenthas had a significant impact onmy life in terms of determining the kind of lawyering-teaching-activismI intend to be doing in the years to come.

After my Masters, I joined NALSAR in the capacity of a Research Associate at the Centre for Disability Studies (CDS) and also at the Centre for Legal Philosophy and Justice Education.During that time, I assisted the CDS team inorganizinga week-long Winter School on ‘Fostering Research in Disability’ focused on engaging with questions pertaining to issues of voice, representation and participation for persons with disability in law-making and cultural processes.In July, 2020, atthe end of this one-year stint as a Research Associate, I got offered a full-time teaching position as an Assistant Professor here at the academy.
