Queen Mary law graduate lands SQE1 scholarship for ‘future of law’ essay

Paralegal Nitesh Rewatkar receives £3k for BARBRI course

Nitesh Rewatkar

Aspiring solicitor Nitesh Rewatkar has bagged himself a full scholarship for BARBRI‘s SQE1 prep course as a part of the global legal educator’s latest essay competition.

In his 1,000-word essay, Queen Mary law graduate Rewatkar sketched out his vision of what law firms of the future will look like in response to the changing business landscape.

“I truly believe that the law firm of tomorrow will need to adopt an integrated and innovative approach to keep up with changing times and demands of clients,” Rewatkar told Legal Cheek. “At the same time, I am hopeful that it will create unique opportunities for the young lawyers of today.”

The scholarship, now in its second year, will allow Rewatkar to commence his SQE studies with BARBRI next year. Rewatkar is qualified lawyer in India and currently works as a paralegal for a law firm in London.

Reacting to his success, Rewatkar said: “It is absolutely wonderful to realise I have won and I am extremely thankful to BARBRI for the opportunity. As an international student, the entire process of being dual-qualified can be challenging but a challenge where an outcome is assured is not a challenge at all. I am delighted to be one step closer to my goal.”

Lucie Allen, BARBRI’s managing director, commented:

“We are passionate and committed to helping our students and the wider community access the legal profession and run a number of scholarships to support this focus. Our essay scholarship is always in high demand with so many wonderful submissions. Nitesh Rewatkar was selected by the judges as the clear winner because it was the most original and innovative.”
