Harsh Amipara

Gujarat National Law University, Gandhinagar

Harsh hails from Majevadi, a small village near Junagadh in Gujarat. Harsh’s father is a factory worker, and his mother is a seasonal farm labourer and homemaker. They have lived in rented apartments. His family has always pooled their limited resources for his education. He completed his secondary education at St. Joseph’s High School and his higher secondary education at N. P. Bhalodia High School, Junagadh, Gujarat.

Harsh has been keen on studying law since high school. In his words, “I was always interested in law because it involves debating topics, analysis and understanding different views and opinions.

Having said that, I also see it as a tool to help people. The most inspiring moment for me was when I attended a guest lecture in my high school wherein a lawyer talked about how he was able to help children in South Sudan while volunteering for an international organization.

After graduating from school, he couldn’t afford to pay for coaching classes for CLAT and had to prepare on his own without any professional guidance. Unfortunately, he didn’t get the needed score for admission.

Harsh is a determined young man and wasn’t willing to give up. He soon started searching for scholarship opportunities and came across IDIA through a Quora post. He sent us an email asking for help.

The IDIA Gujarat team got in touch with him, took his IDIA National Aptitude Test, interviewed him, and enrolled him. As an IDIA trainee, Harsh was enrolled with our training partner Legal Edge and personally guided by the IDIA volunteers at GNLU. He was supported in each step of the entrance preparation by IDIA.

During the months leading to CLAT, Harsh fell sick with dengue and his preparations were disrupted. However, student mentors of IDIA’s Training & Materials and Gujarat teams kept Harsh in good spirits and helped him modify his plan of study.

Harsh has cleared CLAT 2023 and has secured admission at GNLU, Gandhinagar. He will be joining his IDIA student mentors as their junior at law school, which is a proud moment for the entire team.
