Riddhi Dasgupta

JD candidate, Berkeley Law

Berkeley Law student Riddhi Sohan Dasgupta ’16 was part of the team that helped draft the new Tunisian Constitution.

He was named an executive editor of the annual symposium issue of the Harvard Journal of Law & Public Policy, chosen from a competitive pool of students nationwide. The journal is a forum for conservative and libertarian legal scholarship. Dasgupta won the Congressional Gold Medal for Youth at age 22. He holds degrees from Columbia, Oxford, and Cambridge universities and is the author of several books, including International Interplay: The Future of Expropriation Across International Dispute Settlement.
