As a law student, the very idea of being at such close proximity to the process of law-making was itself an extremely exciting thought. In addition, I've always been more fascinated by the macro-level implications of laws and the law making process, as opposed to, say, applying the law to a specific transaction.
It is a very different form of learning. In other research assignments you can wander as per your ideology and present the case however, in a Moot you have to keep yourself confined to the requirements of the proposition
Unlike practise areas like private equity or capital markets, litigation presents a growing opportunity for the country’s best corporate law firms. India’s best corporate firms have realized that capital markets and private equity practise is dwindling and have consequently slowed down hiring, but litigation has followed a different journey – Khaitan’s litigation practise has grown
I believe in mixture of traditional and modern thinking, I believe in mixture of both socialist and capitalist ideology; I learn from the history and look forward towards future; I have faith in both religion and science; I have belief in inter-dependence and independence; I believe in idealism but do not ignore realism too.
If you are taking the bar exam for the first time or are re-taking it on 19 January 2013, do not worry - the groundbreaking crash course by Barhacker with a money back guarantee is back again. Please do mention Lawctopus as the source of information.
Therefore among many examples, I tell them the cautionary tale of the itty-bitty comma that made a big difference in a Canadian court, popularly known as the world's most expensive comma. Interview by Mohona Thakur
Litigation was again a choice made on the basis of aptitude. I have a very bold and overpowering personality with a thirst to be around people and work best in such an environment. Closed doors and fixed timetables are not my cup of tea. But yet I don't say I have made up my mind.
I was always been fascinated to learn medicine especially Ayurveda which never happened in my life. I was much interested in acting and studying drama which father discouraged. After graduation desired to pursue MSc but failed to get an admission. Interview by Ankitha Praveen, College Manager, Lawctopus
Apparently, networking plays a very important role in law. You make contacts, become friends with your seniors, become friends with your co interns and later use these contacts in getting a job. So, what about a person like me who doesn't believe in the concept of networking? Who finds this concept absolutely shallow? If you
As mentioned earlier my current research interests focus primarily on film studies. I do attempt to involve my students in this endeavor of mine by screening films and having discussions on them. Interview by Shreya Vajpei, Lawctopus College Manager
Another aspect that I find satisfying at ILS is the positive response I receive from the remedial class students who are from the vernacular background. I help them strengthen their base in the first year after which they march ahead confidently in the following years and never fail to express their gratitude for bringing
Earlier I was not at all interested in pursuing law. It was because of my father and his uncle, who was once the Chief Justice of Allahabad High Court, that I gave Law entrance exams just for the sake of it.
In my opinion, for the first 5-6 years after graduating from law school, one should not seek to take up a specialisation, and should try their hand at various areas of law. I feel that this gives a holistic approach to one’s career. Also, one should, at an early point in their career, take in
I believe failure is delay, not defeat. I worked hard for getting into NLIU and I was placed in the waiting list in my first attempt. Since, there was no guidance and even I couldn't see any options anymore, I felt like, it was all over. But I took this failure as my strength, worked
To be very honest, my inspiration was the ignorance of our judges and lawyers on the subjects like science, which is nowadays an inevitable one in the civil and criminal litigation. Interview by Prerna Khatri
I spent the first two years of my time at law school hesitant to enter any competitions or events; I was too scared to put myself out there. You can meet some really inspirational people at law school, and while it’s easy to feel intimidated, feeling scared is a complete waste of time. Interview

She holds an LLM from London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) and a BA and LLB from the Symbiosis Law School (SLS), Pune.
I work very closely with government and industry on advocating for policy reforms so that a conducive environment can be built and worked upon. Enforcement issues such as issues of piracy and counterfeiting captures more of our time.
Despite their laurels, the first few batches of students in NUJS were an insecure lot. One could sense that tension in the faces of even a superlative achiever as the campus interviews neared. There was a naturally consequent seriousness because of this. Today, I find students (and their parents) flaunting their contacts with the Shroffs
Menaka Guruswamy, 38 is a graduate of NLSIU Bangalore. She then pursued the BCL, Law from University of Oxford on Rhodes Scholarship and went on to do her LLM from the Harvard Law School. She's the lawyer behind the recent SC's decision on bureaucratic reforms.

At present this combination is not very popular in our country, but I’m sure things are bound to change soon.
