Forum for Law Students
Forum for law students is based on the ideology that you cannot reap benefits if you fail to make use of the opportunities. Similarly, this initiative taken by Umang Foundation aims to make a person aficionado in their interested areas. It will give an opportunity to the students to directly communicate with the legal experts and learn from their experiences. We as law students often do not get such opportunities while studying in a law school and that is when we realise the importance of such happening opportunities. We organize seminars, conferences, competitions, and summer school for the betterment of law community worldwide.
Director (Events), Joint Secretary, Umang Foundation
I am Varsha Gupta, a law student at the School of Law, UPES, Dehradun. I will be serving as the Director (Events) and Joint Secretary at Umang Foundation. I have served as the Vice President (Events) at Network for International Law Students (NILS) and President at NILS Dehradun Chapter. Having organized the Winter School on International Dispute Settlement at Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi in 2017, I have been quite actively involved in organizing the events. Forum for law students is an initiative taken by our team for developing the necessitated skills required for becoming a well-known and successful lawyer. By organizing the events relentlessly, I have realized the importance of practical knowledge, which cannot be taught in the four corners of a classroom and is much required during the internships and jobs. We strive towards making the students as well as young professionals to excel in their respective fields by giving them the required exposure.
As it always has, this opportunity will be a forum for ambitious students, critical thinking, and their overall development.
