Shun corporate offers, law students told

Speaking at the second edition of the annual national Moot Court competition held at the School of Law, Christ University here on Sunday, Justice Sharma said that although corporate jobs are very lucrative, it limits a person’s capabilities unlike in the field of litigation where there is no end to growth.

The new generation lawyers must learn the art of drafting the law which plays an important role in their career.  Law student community must also focus on social legislations and must raise their voice and create awareness about social justice, he added.

Arvind P Datar, Senior Advocate, High Court of Madras said that there is a big vacuum in the Bar Council with hardly any good lawyers joining the Bar.  The law students at present are much more confident and outspoken compared to our generation, he added.
Justice V C Daga, former judge, High Court of Judicature at Bombay said that young lawyers must not limit themselves to one kind of law, exploring various fields from civil, criminal, litigation and corporate law to help them build a strong career.

K G Raghavan, Senior Advocate, High Court of Karnataka said that young lawyers must not capsule and limit themselves to a particular field. “Although initially the practicing as a lawyer will not bring much financial gain, in the long run, there is no limit for earning as a practicing lawyer,” he added.
