Anmol Raj 

National Law University, Jodhpur

Anmol Raj hails from Sonbhadra in Uttar Pradesh. His father works as a sweeper at the Gram Panchayat and supported their family of four with a monthly salary of about Rs. 32,000 when Anmol joined IDIA.

Life wasn’t easy for Anmol. He was born with a defect in his left eye, due to which he had blurred vision since birth. In 2012, when he was 15 years old, Anmol suddenly lost vision in his right eye which was his only functioning eye by then.

Consequently, he had to drop out of his school when he was in the 10th standard to undergo a long and intensive medical treatment. Through the course of the next 5 years, Anmol was completely away from anything remotely related to academics and slowly started to lose the academic skill sets that he had acquired diligently by studying in his school.

However, Anmol wasn’t the type to give in to tough circumstances easily. In 2017, after a 5-year long frustrating gap in his studies, he resumed his schooling and joined the MKSD Inter-college in Lucknow in the 9th standard. Anmol put in tremendous effort to make up for all the lost time and scored a whopping 83% in his 10th standard examinations. The stellar results encouraged Anmol to work even harder. He also decided to study for cracking CLAT.

Anmol dreams of pursuing law and becoming a lawyer due to the dynamism offered by the legal field. There was no lawyer in his family or even in the area around him and that fueled his passion even more to pursue a career that was different from the usual path followed by others. Moreover, he wants to help others and give back to society.

Anmol learnt about IDIA through one of the sensitisation sessions by IDIA volunteers where we talked about legal education and law as a career. He got in touch with us right away. Within a matter of weeks, he was inducted into our training program and put all his efforts into the preparation for the law entrance exams from the start.

Managing his 12th standard examinations alongside his preparation for law entrance exams was a tough task but his resilience and desire to fulfil his dream helped him strike the right balance between the two. His meticulous planning and hard work bore fruits when he passed his 12th standard board exams with a good score and also secured a seat in NLU Odisha. He had a cause for double celebration when the results of both exams were announced within a few days of each other. 

Anmol’s determination and courage have stood the test of time and we are sure that he will continue exhibiting the same in his journey at a premier law school.
