I am a final year law student pursuing BBA LLB (Hons.) at School of Law, Christ (Deemed to be University), Bengaluru. Being an artist, poet, and a social entrepreneur [Managing Trustee at the folk arts organisation-Janapada Kala Sinchana (R.)],  Intellectual property law is something I truly connect with. My interest in the subject increased after working part-time at BananaIP, Bengaluru. My immense passion in the field of art and culture and the constant proximity with artists made me realize the need to create awareness about Intellectual property law within the art community and also the general public. Further, the dynamic nature of Intellectual Property Law fascinates and challenges me. Hence, this initiative!

I am a final year law student from School of Law, Christ (Deemed to be University).

I have always been interested in research, especially in the area of Intellectual Property Rights. My journey to accumulate more knowledge in this field has led me to pursue numerous courses from internationally accredited universities, such as Harvard University, Hong Kong University, University of California, Berkeley, etc. Further, an internship with Intepat IP has added immense practicality to my otherwise theoretical knowledge on IP.  My adoration for research has motivated me to spread awareness and advance quality research culture through this initiative!

I'm a final year law student pursuing BLS LLB from Dr DY Patil College of Law (Mumbai University). Being someone who loves to read, listen to music and has also dabbled a bit in creative writing, I believe that now more than ever, the world needs more creators. The interaction of technology, human creativity & law in IP fascinates me. I have also completed additional certification courses to learn more about this dynamic field. I believe the importance of IP Laws is all set to grow further. However, there is an increasing need to enhance their reach. By being a part of IP Matters, I wish to play my role in doing the same.
