When did “profession” became more important than truth, honesty and justice? What about the duties of lawyers as a citizen? After all every individual is a human first, and then a professional.
This is what I call the “human first approach", as I strongly believe that every human should fulfill his duties as a citizen and
My seniors were some of those who never tasted the Indian side of the legal experience, I thought of them as interns who need some guidance in life. But I got swayed with the lavish life that these corporates give you. I bought a house with the bonus that I earned there, but
"The only sad angle is that I have done too many spectacular things in my life, I just can't try and fit everything in 2 pages. Nothing is enough!"
Generally, recruiters for Internships prefer students with prior experience. To gain prior experience we need internships. It is a vicious circle. By Rupam Gupta. Campus Journalist
8. How to quietly sneak off the bus without buying a ticket and then rejoicing about it because it’s the only funny thing that happened that day.
9. How to listen to music with earphones when both your hands are busy washing clothes and you’re not wearing pants with pockets.
By Tanisha Khaitan
Don't ever vow that you will not ask for any kind of favour from anybody. Come internship season and you will be searching your phone-book for those well connected souls. And then you will discover the true meaning of haves and have nots, us and them. Those who have important 'connections' in the legal fraternity
The next morning, when the Seed woke up, he was greeted by the House with a loud "Hello Kid"!
The seed managed to squeak a "Hello Sir"! And then, on a sudden realisation, he cried "Ah! I am in pain".
"You are turning into a Plant", said the House, "Any transformation takes pain and time" By
I've learnt one thing, and that's to quit worrying about stupid things. You have five years to be irresponsible here, relax. Work is for people with jobs. You'll never remember class time, but you'll remember the time you wasted hanging out with your friends. So stay out late. Spend
This thought again brings me back to the question that what I am going to do next and voila! The feeling of uncertainty and confusion is back. But just as law says – “Truth and Justice shall find its way through obstacles”, I definitely hope so would I.
Stories that we hear, make us.
What about the stories that happen to you, in your 5 years of law school?
Very few of them have been written. Not many of them have been heard.
Each one of us has a story and these stories need to be told!
BEFORE YOU PASS-OUT FROM COLLEGE!
The 4th of March was one of the most memorable days in the history of Kerala Law Academy Law College. On this day, Justice Markandey Katju addressed the budding lawyers of our college during the second Kuttikrishna Memorial Lecture on Ancient Indian Jurisprudence and Modern Jurisprudence. By Janaki Devi, student of Kerala Law
So recently, I got over my utter indifference (and apprehension) over calling the law firms after going through a really bad experience half a year back.
I thought, what the hell man, what loss over the phone. So I picked up that phone and dialled that number.
Guys, two internships were confirmed to me.
Never judge a team before facing them with regards to their capability- do not underestimate them, and more importantly, never underestimate yourself! To quote a cliched achiever's advice- Don't think about the results and do your best, if karma plays a role here, you will return shining, and drunk. Interview by Rohan Mukherjee, Campus
Take, for example, a recent Parliamentary Standing Committee report that expressed serious reservations about GM food. The Committee repeatedly quotes with approval the deposition of Dr Vandana Shiva against GM food.
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,
It is not often that literature is kind to lawyers, either vilifying them mercilessly, or stereotyping them as the holier-than-thou humanitarians that, let’s face it, are about as mythical as unicorns. Nevertheless, there have been a few exceptions. The following are five of them. By Vasudha Misra, Second Year, RMLNLU, Lucknow
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
