FALL STUDENT SPOTLIGHT

The Law Insider Student Spotlight tab is a way to showcase students whom the editors believe have talented writing skills and deserve to be recognized for their work as well as their interest in the topic they are writing about.

 

At the end of every season, a small handful of students will be chosen from the authors of the articles submitted and will be highlighted on this page so that their work can be recognized by not only other high school students but anyone who visits our website or social media page.

 

To be considered for a student spotlight, first, have a look at the different categories that we have editors for and write an article under the corresponding category. However, if you believe you have another interesting topic that others would enjoy reading about, write an article on that topic. After you have written your article, go to the “SUBMIT YOUR ARTICLE” tab on the menu above, and fill out the form. While filling out the form make sure to click the “yes” option to be considered for a student spotlight. After your article is submitted it will be reviewed by the corresponding editor (or anyone on the editing team if your article does not correspond with a category). We will write back to you via email if your article is published or you are considered for a student spotlight.

 

We hope to see your articles submitted to us soon as we would love to have as many articles on this website as possible and highlight as many inspiring students as we can.

What inspired you to write this article?

I was inspired by the apparent discrepancies of COVID vaccine distributions across the world and the unjust exercise of power displayed by richer countries through vaccine supply blocks and vaccine hoarding.

I want people to have a better understanding of global wealth inequality and to engage with and challenge the problems that arise because of it.

Aside from school subjects like history and economics, my main passions include current affairs and politics. I love meeting and engaging with people from different political, religious, economic backgrounds, to myself, allowing me to better understand their views and perspectives in regards to the legal issues our society faces.

I want to pursue a law career in the future in the hopes that I can better understand the systemic injustices that exist in our legal system and work to solve and alleviate them.

Arvind is a Freshman at Novi High School in the United States. His future interests in Law and current reading have inspired his article on the Texas Heartbeat Act. He is a great addition to the community around him both academically and personally.

What inspired you to write this article?

I was inspired to write this article because I recognized that the Texas Heartbeat Act was an important development in the history of abortion law and this caught my attention.  I have been interested in abortion law since I read a biography on Justice Harry Blackmun ( the author of the decision in Roe v Wade).

What do you want people to learn/ get out of this article?

I want people to understand the significance of the Texas Heartbeat Act and the accompanying Supreme Court decision and what it did and what it did not do. I wanted people to understand the legal ramifications of the decision and provide them with only facts.

What are your main passions and why?

My passions are law, politics, and history. I especially enjoy reading biographies of famous politicians and justices.

In what ways have you/ do you impact your community around you? 

Some ways that I have impacted my community are that I volunteer at my local temple. I regularly play an Indian string instrument called the veena at the temple. I also tutor students in my area.

Why are you interested in pursuing law in the future and what do you believe is its impact on the world around us?

I am interested in pursuing law as I believe that law is an intersection of politics and history, which are my two passions. Law impacts every level of society, from individuals to nations. Law is necessary for orderly interactions between people, states, and nations.
