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 of public opinion is the first formal condition of achieving anything great.”

Ultimately, the lessons I took were not of failure or success but rather the skills that I picked up along the way which help me even today.
PS- we love our competitor

You’d notice that all the successful legal startups such as LST, Rainmaker, Legally India or Lawctopus [hey! that’s us] have been started by young lawyers or law students. I feel that for law students to do that, we must encourage and support them in a big way.

For example if one searches for the word murder in Google, the first hit it is murder the movie, which is wholly irrelevant for legal research. So, I wondered if it was possible to build a search engine which will not just do contextual research, customised to a legal researcher’s requirements.
Last month I launched an android app for conveniently displaying the E-Display Board of the Punjab and Haryana High Court.
In the coming time I plan to come out with something similar for other High Courts and the Supreme Court with added functionality of case status search etc .

Unlike a masters or a counsel practice, we don’t fit into an existing institutional set-up, nor are we participants in an existing system.
It is a revolution we want to create in a world hitherto dominated by mom and pop lawyers and law firms. Our vision is that the default for a person needing legal or professional assistance should be to go online on his computer or tablet.
