I am a lawyer from India, working in the fields of constitutional law, human rights, and legal history. I pursued a five-year combined law and humanities bachelor degree (B.A., LL.B) at the Jindal Global Law School (JGLS), O.P. Jindal Global University, NCR of Delhi from 2014 to 2019. At JGLS, I was involved in various human rights advocacy efforts involving the rights of workers, religious minorities etc. I later assisted Ms. Indira Jaising, a prominent human rights lawyer, in the Sabarimala temple entry case and the challenge to the provision criminalising adultery in the Supreme Court of India. I also worked as a research assistant at the Centre for Communication Governance, National Law University, Delhi and produced a report on the constitutionality of internet shutdowns in India. During my final year at law school, I served as a Teaching Assistant to Prof. (Dr.) Sumit Baudh, Associate Professor of Law, JGLS, for the course on constitutional law and taught modules on fundamental rights to second year law students. After graduating from JGLS, I joined the Supreme Court of
India in June 2019, as a Law Clerk-cum-Research Assistant to Mr. Justice L. Nageswara Rao, Judge, Supreme Court of India and served in that capacity till December 2020. During my stint with the Supreme Court, I had the opportunity of working on several cases involving important questions of constitutional law and human rights. In January 2021, I moved to New York City, U.S.A to pursue an LL.M. in Legal Theory at the New York University School of Law, where I work on the theory of human rights, comparative constitutional law and social justice.

I am a J.D. candidate ('21) at New York University School of Law. I have focused my studies primarily in international law and human rights, as well as domestic public interest and policy matters. I have worked as a Fellow with the Center for Human Rights and Global Justice (CHRGJ) at NYU and am currently working as a clinic student with the Brennan Center for Justice. Additional interests of mine - which may come into play in future placements, at least in some respects - include mental health law, environmental law, empirical research, history, psychology, and philosophy. While my interests are wide (and even wider than this), I believe they all have a role to play in my primary focuses as noted above. This being the case, I note my issue areas of focus primarily based on subjects I have at least touched upon in my course work or work experiences.
