I remember a time in law school, back in my first year when a friend told me that I need to let my hair down more often. I was walking back with him from class and this was not the first time we were having that conversation. A particular bunch of solicitous batch-mates including this friend of mine had taken it upon themselves to tell me to stop being so studious and to spend some time doing what 19 year-old college students do, i.e., spend the better half of their time mingling with their peers. Fresh into law school, I loved attending classes and I would spend a good number of hours after class in the college library. I think that...

  MEMOIRS OF A LAW SCHOOL DEBATER (This is a true account of what happened with students of a law school when they were in Delhi for a debate; names of certain locations and persons have been withheld to protect the identity of the students)   Parliamentary style debating is one of the lesser known activities of law school, it differs significantly from high school debating in this that it is more spontaneous and is an exercise in having ‘presence of mind’; unlike the ‘fist-pounding’ and aggression needed to debate motions in schools. Those of you who have debated at some time in law school would be familiar with the intricacies involved in this activity. Debating like public speaking is a...

  The Five People You Meet In Every Law School and Why It Is Good To Have Enemies (Law school politics)   I am not the kind who is quick to judge people and my first instinct is to trust others...but law school essentially changes the way you look at the world and in the words of a former law student, it teaches you ‘to keep your blinkers on’ all the time. Where you earlier had three dimensions of looking at a problem, law school introduces a fourth, fifth even a sixth!-such is the beauty of the thinking with which a law school equips you...

WHO MOVES YOUR CHEESE IN A LAW SCHOOL (what every NLU-ite should know)   ‘Who Moves Your Cheese In A Law School?’ This was the question that intrigued me when I finished Dr. Spencer Johnson’s ‘Who Moved My Cheese’. Ready to start my sophomore year in college, I often reminisce about the time when I was preparing for CLAT- when the idea of being in a ‘law school’ seemed so exciting- I imagined that it would mean poring over books in the library buried in ‘heavy research’ and having the most exciting trials in classrooms where we would be discussing controversial cases and coming up with fantastic arguments. This is the Cheese (metaphor for ‘happiness’) that I sought while preparing...
