Then Ashok Raj Gupta sir (Asst. Director, Advocacy Dept.) called us and assigned our mentor and we were asked to confirm the research topic (Note: You may change or continue with the research topic submitted by you in internship application).

My mentor was Dr. Kumkum Budgujjar Ma’am (Joint Director, Law Division). Again she is expert, also very good and friendly mentor. I have discussed my topic with her and she helped me immensely.
