Teaching Philosophy

A student excels when they challenge themselves to do better. Similarly, a teacher thrives when they are pushed and challenged by their students. The quality of students and the level of inquisitiveness regarding the subject determine the growth of a teacher. Dr. Choudhary firmly believes that growth in the wisdom and personality of a teacher should be constant, and there should also be a focus on interdisciplinary research, experiential learning, and cultivating a socially aware legal community. Teaching is a two-way process that requires sharing or exchanging information and knowledge, some based on theories while some lived in reality. It is in this process that we learn lessons which we may not have or probably may not experience ourselves. Teaching also requires one to not only be factually sound but also bear the personality that reflects a positive outcome of such experiences.
