This summer, Drew Eckl & Farnham welcomed incoming college student Ajay Nathan as a law clerk intern.
Why are you interested in the legal industry?
I’m interested in the legal industry because, in nearly all senses, law dictates the ways in which we live our lives. It is all encompassing but is not necessarily straightforward either – there are so many aspects to consider when dealing with any case, and an attorney’s job is to maneuver that complex process and produce a desirable outcome. I think the entire process is so interesting because it’s not always the same (even within the same field, the cases that are taken on can vary greatly). It’s exciting to think about handling a case myself one day.
What are some activities you enjoy doing in your free time?
I love morning hikes, casual gaming, discussing current events, writing, and visiting new places. I think a combination of outdoor activities and indoor activities is ideal for a balanced lifestyle.
If you were a superhero, what would be your super power and why?
My super power would be creation – I’d have the ability to create any non-living material I want, albeit in limited quantities and not infinitely. I think this power can be extremely helpful in most situations and I could probably make money off it (just kidding, that would probably offset the economy).
Where are you headed to school in the fall and what will you be studying?
I will be heading to Georgetown University this fall! I’m currently undecided/undeclared but I’m thinking either Biology of Global Health or Political Economy.
