I am a First-Year law student at Bharati Vidyapeeth University, New Law College, Pune and am writing to apply for the position of student ambassador for the Mediation Awareness Drives. Mediation is something which is pushing at the moment, unfortunately, not everybody knows about it specifically the lower strata that has been pestered for ages. During my internship also, I witnessed that it is the lower income group that is shackled in the complex justice system.
Therefore, as an ambassador, my major plan of action would be to inform as many people as I could that mediation is out there, also educating them on the basics of it. Another issue that cannot be neglected is the usurp in family conflicts, wherein mediation would serve as the best alternative and through the legal aid center of my college I could possibly spread awareness to a wider section. As there are a number of senior counsels visiting our college, being an ambassador would provide me the opportunity to table the issue in front of them and engage them in discussions through which we could arrive at making mediation a substantive option before litigation.
Therefore, being an ambassador would allow me to continue my commitment to help people to get justice easy and quick also I feel confident that I could contribute substantively, as this is more than just an opportunity for me. Thank you for your consideration.
