Master of Laws (Access to Justice)

Bridge - PG Scholar in Law & Gender, 2023-24

I  come  from  a  background  where  economic hardships have been a constant  companion.  The  financial  burden  was  immense,  and  the prospect  of  obtaining  a  master's  degree  in  law,  given  my  family's economic condition, seemed like an impossible feat. I strongly believe that pursuing LLM at TISS will provide me with abetter  perspective  on  human  rights.  Now,  'Bridge'  has  not  only lightened the burden of tuition fees but has also become a source of motivation and encouragement, propelling me forward in my quest to make a meaningful impact through the realm of law. A  lawyer  with  social  compassion  can  play  a  huge  role  in  ensuring access  to  justice  for  all  people,  especially  the  vulnerable.  Being  a Bridge  Scholar,  my  journey  at  TISS  will  not  only  equip  me  with academic prowess but also instil in me the values necessary to become an advocate for positive change.
