My personal statement was on child sexual abuse (focussing on the laws of India) and the need to use child friendly laws and procedures. (I am a Human rights lawyer BTW).

Michaeeeel, we are all keen to know your topic as well.

My essay was about methodogical issues in legal history, namely, what are the benefits of comparative legal history, and how sociology of knowledge could help us in understanding legal realist revolution. I contrasted my own approach with that of two Harvard legal historians: Morton J. Horwitz and Duncan Kennedy. It may sound impressive, but the truth is, the essay itself is not that impressive. I wrote it very quickly, and it did not turn out that well. If I make it to HLS, it won't be because of that essay.
