What is ‘Law Mentor’?
Law Mentor is a comprehensive legal and trusted website for law students. The opportunities provided by the website include seminars, article writing competition, essay writing competition, law school fests, moot court competitions, blog writing competitions and various law school events conducted by Law Colleges/ Universities across all over India. It aims at elevating and promoting all legal events to approach the legal aspirants without any hitch.
They are aiming to create a platform from where, whoever lands gets an opportunity to do something, to take something, thus ensuring a more effective platform for legal acumen.
Being a law student myself, what we fantasize is that we get a place which can keep us updated about all our upcoming moots, call for papers, internship opportunities and even legal jobs vacancies at one place, Lawmentor does exactly the same for us. It provides us a more diversified platform with everything a law student requires at one concentrated place.
To introduce myself, starting from my early schooling, I have maintained a consistent good academics record and cracked my CLAT 2018 without the need of any coaching centers but with unacademy tutors.
Also, my academic records in the university have been quite consistent with 4.52 CGPA out of 7 and a rank of 30 out of 180 students. I have been very active in my college elections and currently being elected as IT & Infrastructure CR as well as the student representative of the Internship Coordination Committee(ICC)of HNLU.
In my summer internship last year in May 2019, I worked with Patanjali Group office based in Noida under the guidance of Mr.Shantanu Gupta, Communication advisor to Baba Ramdev and researched on Project “Why government holdings are only on Hindu religious institutions when India claims itself to be a Secular Nation”. The project work was basically primary and included a lot of travelling and interviews.
Last year, In the month of June 2019, I was selected in a research base internship with the premier think tank ‘Indian Police Foundation & Institute’ New Delhi under the guidance of Senior IPS officer Mr.Ish Kumar, Former DGP Telangana, and researched on “Emergency Police response system in Delhi, Noida and Gurugram: Types, Effectiveness and Coordination”.The research work included a lot of interviews with the Police officials of the concerned states and required a lot of research work. Also, my experience includes an internship in High court of Chhattisgarh.That's all about me.
I have always been dwelled towards how can we take the help of technology in the traditional field of law where still works are required to be done on paper mode. Integration of technology with that of the field of law can bring immense development in the manual mode of working in the field. Lawmentor is that effort with which a hundred hours of searching for opportunities manually can be done just by clicking few buttons in your mouse or even more handy with the smartphones.
