Inspirations from Nani Palkhivala, one of the greatest lawyers India has ever had.

You may wonder what a CLAT hacker can learn from Nani Palkhivala. Admittedly, there will be next to nothing from a study point of view. But I believe CLAT is won and lost in the head, and being motivated is critical to winning this battle.

Over the course of my life, I had just known about Nani Palkhivala through his reputation, that of being a famous lawyer. I was not inclined to, and neither did I have a chance to learn more about the man. However, after deciding to pursue Law and…

How to enrol into Symbiosis Law School, where to stay and how to travel, and A to Z of procedure

I do not want to begin a discourse about Symbiosis Law School and how you can compete with NLUs. I do not have the energy and time to do that, I also feel it is not worth my time. The only thing I understand is Legal education and honing legal skills goes beyond any institutional frontier. If you are in Symbiosis or any other top Law School, then you are privileged to get that launch pad, nothing more. When you move out of College, you are on your own; the skills that you have…

A comprehensive guide to Education Loan

We are used to the idea that our parents are going to pay for our education. However, the trends have changed because of the emergence of some super-expensive higher education zones, especially in the arena of professional studies. Moreover, not all the teenagers in India are fortunate enough to have parents who earn enough to fund the education they aspire and qualify for.

Education has been commoditized and education from the top-notch B-school or law school adds to the…

Lawyer myths a lawyer in making should not believe

 1.You have to learn the law by rote


What is the date today? W hich year, and which century is this? In the age of handheld smart devices and ubiquitous internet, no one needs to memorise any law. The information is at fingertips. The skill that a lawyer brings on the table is the ability to process and interpret that information, and identify a course of action based on the information. Memorising the law is futile, though some law students do it for the…

Law school rankings are for idiots. What should you look out for during choosing a law school?

What is law school ranking all about?

Law school ranking is all about perpetuating a myth. Its all about getting worked up and fighting tooth and nail.

To understand the sinister design behind these rankings, you must consider the origin of these ranks. There was a time when there was only one law school, as an experiment of a maveric visionary. This was the case for one whole decade as that law school struggled in Bangalore hidden away from public eye to prove…

How to prepare for Current Affairs - a study of the CLAT 2008 General Knowledge section

It is very important to study the past years papers to understand how questions are framed by paper setters. CLAT 2008 paper was set by NLSIU bangalore, and was a good and balanced paper.
