Pukhraaj received his Juris Doctor in 2022 from the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia. Choosing to study abroad, he sought to immerse himself in a new culture, broadening his horizons and fostering personal growth.

Prior to his adventurous student journey abroad, Pukhraaj received his Bachelor of Arts in Criminology from Simon Fraser University in 2018, complemented by a certificate in Police Studies. His favorite courses focused on minorities and inadequacies in our legal system.

During law school, his favorite courses included alternative dispute resolution, domestic and international human rights. He also embraced his competitive spirit by participating in law school activities such as mooting and client-interview competitions.
