“I Saw a Dream, and I Decided to Pursue It.” Advocate Pinky Kapoor
Read on to know more about the life journey of Advocate Pinky Kapoor.
The story of Pinky Kapoor begins with her childhood, which was full of giggles and laughter. She was raised by two strong women in a big, fat Punjabi joint family. Her first teacher and mentor was her Nani Maa, Smt. Savitri Devi Sethi. She adored little Pinky from the bottom of her soul and taught her spiritual compassion towards God. She taught her the value of sharing what you have with love and adherence from within. Her mother, Neeru, taught her that life is full of twists and turns and that books will always be a person's best friend. Pinky learned from her mother that she is not a quitter but a fighter. Her maternal grandparents, aunts, and uncles were her true inspiration. They all taught her from their life experiences.
CL Sethi was her favorite uncle, who taught her to always aim high, study well, and become a magistrate. Little Pinky carried this thought forward and decided to make this her dream.
Pinky studied hard and finally cracked the exam for Delhi Law School in 2007. She started studying at Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University and ended up with an undergraduate degree in law in 2012. In these five years, she has learned a number of things. She learned how to carry herself with elegance and inculcated leadership skills in her. These five years of study proved to be a roller coaster ride for her.
Her legal internship at Bhasin & Associates at the Delhi High Court taught her the nuances of the law and its practical implications. Her mentor taught her the pros and cons of descriptive cases, including family matters, property matters, et cetera. She also actively participated in moot court competitions, seminars, and debates, along with maintaining her rank in academics.
Kapoor enrolled herself with the Bar Council of India in 2012 as an advocate, and since then, there has been no looking back for her. She joined Amity University, Noida, to pursue her master's degree in constitutional law while also apprenticing with Advocate Nikhilesh in the Supreme Court of India. Her bar exam in India was cleared in 2013.
Pinky had set her goal when she was a child and made sure that every day she worked a little towards achieving it. Working towards her dream of becoming a magistrate, she started preparing for the judicial exam in Karol Bagh in 2015–2016. Later, she practiced independently as an advocate in 2017, where she handled property and family-related matters.
The COVID period was a tough time in her life. But instead of getting low on spirits, she decided to utilize the time and share her legal knowledge with the world. She started teaching online judicial coaching programs and CLAT programs pro bono. Since 2020, she has taken up the noble pursuit of providing education to needy kids because she wants to help them. She has also been taking up judicial coaching classes pro bono for aspirants in need. She is also allied with an NGO program for women’s development and empowerment projects, including children and animals. She was invited as a judge in various moot court competitions held in law colleges. Along with this, she has handled cases involving international arbitration.
As an advocate, she is an officer of the court. Her duty is bound to be to provide quality legal education. As an advocate, she is a social engineer with a vast role in covering up society's issues and guiding people to be solution-oriented.
She believes we should be process-oriented and problem solvers rather than exaggerating it the most. She still has a long way to go. She is living her goal and wants to change the perspective of achieving better solutions.
