But those days of sitting in our hostel rooms, late at night, over bottles of, er, thums-up and kebabs, and planning out LST were so awesome! Nothing like ‘creating’ something ground-up.
We used ICQ chat software, early email systems, a basic website etc. to interact with students.
Like a wise man once said: “To be independent
And the above insignificant details leads me to the most bizarre question of all- How were 5 years of law school for you?
The only words that come to my mind are ‘numb’ and ‘disoriented’.
I can’t really say, 5 years were candy floss; but a bone-shaking ride for sure. I took up law because I’d heard
I am forced to experience a carnival of emotions in my mind: right from being too sentimentally attached to this place in order to leave, to the anticipation, excitement and fear about the life ahead. By Arushi Singh, NLIU Bhopal
The excuse of a new practice cannot be stretched over more than 2-3 years. Bar Council of India needs to implement stringent procedures to regulate its own conduct in terms of organising the exam. One can only hope that the subsequent bar exams uphold some level of dignity and prestige associated with an exam which
The hope of someday having well built road, the hope of someday having a faithful wi-fi the hope of someday securing a PPO, the hope that someday the campus will resemble like the wonderful model of as it should have been and oh yes how can I miss it the hope of finding love again
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,
