Pritam Ghosh

Assistant Professor of Law - Ramaiah College of Law, Bangalore


Experience :

It was a wonderful experience judging the 1st A P J Abdul Kalam International Socio-legal Film making competition. All entries were extremely close to reality, innovative and creative as well. Entries were on contemporary issues which were extremely relevant in increasing public awareness about ongoing socio-legal issues. The top 5 entries stood out from other entries in terms of their content, style of presentation, picturization and conceptual clarity.

I look forward to being a part of the panel in future as well and wish all the best to the organizers in all their future endeavours including in organizing the successive editions of this competition.



Ashish Gupta

Student of B.A. LL.B (Hons.) CPJCHS & SOL, New Delhi


Experience :

I am Ashish Gupta student of B.A. LL.B (Hons.) CPJCHS & SOL, New Delhi Affiliated to GGSIPU, Delhi. I participated in 1st Dr. A P J Abdul Kalam National Legal Essay Competition - 2016 organised by ProBono India in association with Skillfull India (An Initiative of Vision of Tomorrow Charitable Trust, NGO). At the outset It was a great experience! Taking part in this competition helped me to understand the topic, Legal Education, from a very different view. It is apparent that legal education has a significant role to play in the establishment of law-abiding society. The essay competition exposed me to something new, and it pushed me beyond what I thought. It is very great for the students to participate in it. I will encourage the students to take part next year. At last, I would like to say thank you ProBono India.



R Vigneshwaran

Student of Tamil Nadu National Law School, Tiruchirappalli


Experience :

I am R. Vigneshwaran Student of Tamil Nadu National Law School, Tiruchirappalli, Tamil Nadu. I participated in 1st Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam Legal Essay Competition 2016 and secured 3rd position in it. First it is to bring to all the individuals’ perusal that the Competition organising way was outstanding and every time when I ask them doubts they replied me patently without any hesitation. So hands off to the organising committee and it does not seem to me that it was their 1st essay competition for them and really it was such as pleasure participating in it.  

To share my experience, first of all I should thank my friend who actually initiated and triggered me to participate in it and encouraged me that you have such a big potential and you will sure deserve a win in it and I marked his words strongly and started to work very next day. And for me personally the topic seems to be very attractive, I liked to bring a change in the current legal system because students of National Law School and other private law colleges students are bit intelligent in all the way comparatively and only few students shine well and rest is sorrow. 

“So many students are lacking behind bars because of one of the primary reason that education lacks, the infrastructure lacks, the quality of teaching lacks, the quality of teachers lacks and many more lacks and they lacks turns out to be lakhs and lakhs very year.” 

So I put myself and worked so hard to bring out a quality essay, so that it changes the minds of the readers to solve issues and challenges faced by the Legal Education in India. So hope within 5-10 years the entire legal system changes. Waiting in levels.

Through the way of this competition I was given an opportunity to present my views or ideas on the legal education.The main purpose which probono India deals with the help of legal aid to the needy people which sets an example for the poor litigants to raise voice if their rights has been violated or infringed. Lastly, I want to conclude that my whole journey with probono india was really enthusiastic.
