On the LLM

The interaction of law with other disciplines makes the Fletcher LLM different from a traditional law school LL.M. It allows the small group of LLM students to see complex issues of international law in economic, political and social contexts. Fletcher helps me learn from the diverse experiences of my extremely competent batchmates, receive global exposure in an ever-changing world and engage in rich discussions with the renowned faculty members and experts. I hope that the wonderful curriculum and unmatched exposure at Fletcher will enable me to better understand and solve the challenges of India and the world.

How do you plan to use your experience at Fletcher to make a difference in the world?

There's so much I will gain during my time at Fletcher. As a passionate advocate, I can say without a doubt that Fletcher will give me perspectives of both realists and skeptics, optimists and naysayers. Receiving this truly global education will enable me to carve a path for myself and give me a lifelong cohort to work with and fight alongside to help change the world for the better. I shall be better equipped and educated to contribute to society in an even stronger, more consistent and meaningful way.
