This Mentorship has really helped me gain a strong foundation to pursue law as my career. It’s shown me vividly how law works as a career and has given me a strong base for the start of my law career. It is a beautiful platform for confused students like me, to find their path.
I had no idea what law was but still applied out of curiosity, and am very glad that I did so. It was one of the best Mentorships I have attended, with the wonderful my mentor explaining legal terms and concepts, answering all our doubts, and giving us assignments to work on that felt like working at an actual legal office. Though virtual, the moot court was every bit as exciting as a real one, and now I am seriously considering becoming a lawyer.
