A little-known fact about Dr Shiva is that her organisation, Navdanya, according to its FCRA filings, has received a total of Rs 16.7 crore between
Yes, principles are molded, and you tend to modify them as you gain experience, but there times when you question the very purpose of those small talks, those passing smiles, and the continuous dose of pretentious apathy and forced sympathy. By Rohan Mukherjee, student at NLUO, Campus Journalist at Lawctopus
So, no this is not some crazy person telling you to give up everything you've worked towards and just go party all day, this is just a slightly frustrated law school student at 1 am in the night telling you and every single other law school student out there to loosen up a little, to
I’m a budding litigator and I’m scared of speaking in public. Then I came to law school, and realised (happily enough) that there were others travelling on the same boat as me. I felt the sheer, part-sadistic, part-genuinely-happy delight that the Fox-Without-A-Tail feels when the revelation, that all the other foxes are tail-less too, hits
On the other hand, this absolute low-level scumbag who is a bottom feeder, lazes around, does weed, drinks his days off and HE gets to intern at a damn good law firm because his chachi is firm's partner's wife's favourite parlour owner! This is what it has come to? By Neeati Narayan, Campus Journalist,

He went on to do a number of interviews with executives, and to argue that the fast paced lifestyle of today is simply not sustainable for the human mind or body. Eventually we break down, and we wear out -- we get sloppy, we get lazy, we started to automate things, we lose our moral
Some law students have even been threatened. "This won't be good for your career". My reply to the law student always is, "They won't be able to do much. And if such is the attitude of an employer, better not deal with them in any capacity." By Tanuj Kalia
No, you cannot stay away from doing that because there is always another case to read, assignment to write or seminar to prepare for; when while preparing you have to look up every third word you read and wonder if the combined Parliament and Judicial intent was to drive law students insane. By Saloni
The situation is pretty unfortunate. Earlier, we had some awesome seniors who themselves used to take part in events like volleyball, throwball, basketball and also egged us on to participate. It was a nice camaraderie. However, the scene is not the same anymore. Girls not showing any kind of interest for sporting events is sad.
Most of the students from GJLS actively took part in the fashion show, having taken a policy decision not to participate in moot courts etc., activities which now find favour only with the national or regional law schools. "A global lawyer has have all-round abilities", explained Lakshman Kumar, the director of GJLS.
I urge all those like me who invest in new clothes, sleep in bearish blankets, travel in heated cars and buy out shelves of rum, to please stop and look around through the fog. Your gaze is bound to fall on street urchins and beleaguered octogenarians shivering by the street, selling roses, scaled aircraft models

A uniform may add a sense of belonging to the profession, but its not a pre-requisite to being a competent professional. No potent rays are emitted from the combination of a white shirt and a black pant which makes you a better lawyer.
I am not happy about either choice; because if it is the latter, then you will never ultimately be happy, since you will keep on blaming, at least sub-consciously, the love of your life for holding you back from what you think, you could have been or when you compare your 1.5 lakhs a month
File a RTI with the Ministry of Environment asking for a photocopy of the relevant files pertaining to the clearances. Just imagine an entire government file on environmental clearances as a part of your reading material!
I had researched hard, nearly painstakingly, to finally arrive at the place where I wanted to do my first internship. It was a small law firm which excited me because of all the usual reasons: personal attention, more work and thus lots to learn. I had looked up the
In a voice steeped in love and overwhelmed with fear—a balancing act that makes you sound like a frog with a sore throat—you finally say “Hi babbu”, cupping the phone to your ear and lips, whatever, and making small sounds that could have been dry kisses; she just called since she was missing you
