Breaking: Nalsar Hyderabad, NLSIU Bangalore students bag Rhodes 2nd year running

Exclusive: Nalsar Hyderabad student Shreya Atrey and NLSIU Bangalore student Gautam Bhatia have won the prestigious 2011 Rhodes Scholarship as part of which they can study a law course for one year at the University of Oxford.

Atrey and Bhatia are understood to have been notified on Saturday (23 October) of their win, according to law school sources.

The two fifth-year law students were the part of a total selection of five from India, with the other three coming from non-law disciplines.

This is the third year running that an NLSIU student has secured the Rhodes Scholarship and the second year in a row for Nalsar Hyderabad, as reported by Legally India one year ago.

Last year V Niranjan of NLSIU and Aditya Swarup of Nalsar won the coveted scholarship, while the previous year Sushila Rao from NLSIU and Dhvani Mayur Mehta from Government Law College, Mumbai won the prize.

Bhatia had competed jointly with previous Rhodes scholar Niranjan in the Jessup world finals in April 2010, according to the Legally India  Mooting Premier League.

A full interview with Bhatia has been published on Lawctopus.
