It is my pride to claim that I had been a student of Dr. Ambedkar Govt. Law College, Puducherry which has given an identity in my career development. Though initially law was not my choice, I was destined to opt legal studies as my only choice. The excellent academic atmosphere and ambience created by the team of dedicated faculty members headed by legal luminaries such as Dr. N. R. Madhava Menon and Dr. S. G. Bhat made me love legal studies very soon of my entry into the institution. The unique experience along with the vibrant pedagogy, I gained in moot court, legal aid and other co-curricular activities that eventually shaped my teaching career in the state of Tamil Nadu. A rare and rich learning resource available in the institution with their easy access is simply unparallel. I feel blessed to have majored in law and subsequently done Post Graduation in Law from the same college. I always cherish my sweet memories of my stay at Dr. Ambedkar Govt. Law College, Puducherry. I am in dearth of words in expressing my gratitude to my alma mater that is completing its golden jubilee year.

I owe it to my parents, my teachers and to our college.
