AJ AGRAWAL

Co-Founder And Vice-President

Public International Law piqued his curiosity in his first year, when he had to prepare for the university selection rounds for the Manfred Lachs International Space Law Moot. Since then, his curiosity has grown from an interest to a passion due to the variety of ways in which he was able to engage the subject. He was declared the ‘Best Oralist’ in the 7th Leiden Sarin International Air Law moot Court Competition 2016 and was also part of the winning team. In his second year he had the opportunity to study International Human Rights at the London School of Economics as part of a short course which gave him the foundation necessary to take part and be a semi-finalist at both the Manfred Lachs and Jessup Moots. He hopes to not only be able continue to have a meaningful engagement with this subject, but perhaps build a career around it in the future.
