About the Project

‘Project Abhimanyu’ is a pro bono and voluntary initiative that aims at increasing access to career opportunities in the legal industry by providing free guidance and career counselling to law students who do not come from a law background. It was started by Ojasvita Srivastava, an in-house counsel based in Delhi.

It works assiduously with students to increase awareness among them about various career paths available in the legal profession, focussing on students from colleges that do not have an active placement cell. In colleges that do have a fully functional placement cell, it assists and contributes to the existing services available at the academic institution towards guiding students. It does so by seeking guidance from highly trained and experienced professionals in the legal industry who are willing to voluntarily mentor students in their free time. In the long run, Project Abhimanyu will work towards enriching the talent pool available to the legal profession.

The impact of Project Abhimanyu

Ultimately, Project Abhimanyu is working towards creating an environment in the legal industry in India that ensures that a law graduate is never left behind because of a lack of guidance. It is helping law students make informed career decisions so they achieve success proportionate to their calibre and hard work.

Services by Project Abhimanyu

Students write in Project Abhimanyu to ask any query related to the legal career. These could be about improving their CV, internship applications, job applications, career guidance, civil services examination, higher education in India or abroad, CA/CS courses, working in-house or any other information related to law.

Contact

Students simply need to drop an email to [email protected] and they would be assigned to a mentor who would answer their queries.
