A convocation cermony is not something that one easily forgets and for Poorvi Satija, hers will always remain extra special. the 10 individual and two shared gold medals won by the student of Nalsar University of Law will ensure that.”Honestly I expected around three to four gold medals. Ten is a huge number” exclaims Poorvi, who moved to the city five years ago. “I won the All Rounder Student Medal, Best Female Student Medal,Vice-Chancellor Medal, a medal for law of evidence one for criminal law and I shared gold medals for administrative law and legal method….that’s all i can remember” she says
So did her days at college involve just studying , studying and more studying? ” No way I just paid attention in class and I did not sit with my books for hours on end she says. But giving credit where it’s due . she adds ” it would not have been possible without my classmates we studied together”As part of her curriculum Poorvi went on a student exchange programme to singapore where she was taught by some of the best professors from Harvard. “Apart from that the numerous mooting and mock court sessions held at the University made a big difference.” she says.The brilliant student also found time for extra curricular activities. ” I love theatre.
