Before that, she read for the DPhil, MPhil and BCL at the University of Oxford (Hertford and Magdalen) as a Rhodes Scholar and a Mann Senior Scholar. Arushi completed her undergraduate degree in Law at NALSAR University and graduated with several gold medals and a mention on the Vice Chancellor’s merit list.
