1/ Thread (8) Young Lawyers who want to learn Criminal Law without help of any guide or mentor, may consider following points.
1) Criminal law is a "Tacit Knowledge" (Knowledge that is learned by doing a task. Just like learning to ride on a bicycle. Here the whole body learns the skill when a job is actually being done.)
2) To learn from a case, you must have access to some actual record of a criminal case.

1/ (7) Young lawyers often feel stuck in their career. They may try following exercise.

This exercise is called "20 Sentence Completion Exercise"
2/ Write, "I feel stuck in my life because ........ ".

Then complete this sentence 20 times. This will take out all worries from your mind and will put them on paper where you can see them.
3/ Then write, "I feel unstuck because .....".

Now, complete this sentence 20 times.

Here are some examples which have guided me :

1/ (6)Young lawyers who do not like Criminal Law, may consider following points.

Crimes happen in morning.
Crimes happen in Afternoon.
Crimes happen in evening..
Crimes happen during nights.
2/ Rich people commit crimes.
Poor people commit crimes.
Middle class people commit crimes.

Crimes happen in posh colonies.
Crimes happen in slums.
3/ Crimes happen in winter.
Crimes happen in summer.
Crimes happen in monsoon.

In criminal law you need to master only three laws.

In criminal law you need to read judgements on only three laws.

1/ (5)Young lawyers may find it helpful to keep a "Chronicle of Mistakes".

In young age, we are bound to make mistakes. After a hearing is over, we have lots of second thoughts on what we could have done differently to win the case.
2/ But by then, the bus has left. We feel sorry and guilty.

Following point can be remembered to reduce stress of discovering our own mistakes.
3/ "It is okay to be wrong. It is okay to commit mistakes. I showed up and I tried. And that is what it matters. "

It helps to keep a Chronicle of mistakes or a Learning Journal, to record what we could have done differently.

1/ (4)Young lawyers need to be clear about their fee policies.

I hear lots of juniors who complain that clients exploit them and pay them very low fees.

Following point can be remembered to reduce stress of being paid low fees.
2/ "Fee is not always in cash. It can also be rewards of other kinds".

Since 1982, my fee policy is :

"Whatever you can pay. You should be comfortable. And I should also be comfortable. You should not expect me to spend from my own pocket".
3/ My definition of "My being Comfortable" kept changing upward as my clients base grew.

Let me know if this suggestion is helpful and practical.

University rankings are a constantly-gamed mess.

Their biases punish universities for trying to address societal problems.

And make it harder for students to find the best education for their needs.

Reckoning desperately overdue.
UPDATE 2: The #lawschool rankings shakeup continues as @Harvard_Law pulls out of @usnews Rankings.

Thread (1 to 8 ) 1/ A liftman in my chamber building recently committed suicide. We are taught in colleges that Law is considered science of social engineering.

Then can we explain position of law relating to suicide of this liftman ?
2/ He was in his 40th year. He used to salute me everytime I enter and leave lawyers chambers. Like all other lawyers, I also used to give him tips. But then nothing more.
3/ When I heard about his sudden suicide, I first time realised that he too was a human being with emotions. So far I used to see him only as a liftman.

Alas! Alas ! Alas ! If someone had told me this when I was young. I wish someone had told me then that โ€œThe Road of Goals is filled with pebbles of gold.โ€

All I needed to do was to lift pebbles and to finish goals mentioned under the pebbles.

2/ To understand a cryptic section, we #lawyers and #judges, read a sentence twice, thrice or till we understand meaning of each word.

If you will read earlier tweet in this thread again, you may find that the pebbles on the road to goals are very heavy.
3/ As I came out from the college, I saw that my friends were focusing on picking up pebbles of gold on the road of goals. I however kept gazing at stars, kept reading books and became an idealist. I did not gave much importance to pebbles.

Thread : Four questions that may predict success of lawyer.

1/ Suppose you do have a abilty to read a law report and to make notes from that.

But do you also have ability to do the same when heat is 47 C and when there is no air conditioner?

#lawyers #lawstudents
2/ Do you have that abilty even when you are very much tired and feeling very sleepy ?

You may have ability to read any law report when you are required to do so for a case. But suppose, in your free time you are sitting in a court's law library,
3/ do you feel like opening any law report randomly and to start reading it randomly?

Suppose you have come to court but you have no case today. Do you feel like going and sitting in court of a most boring and most rude judge, a judge who keeps insulting lawyers one by one?

Thread "How to argue in court" - an easy to understand explanation to day to day Court Language.

1) First learn, "What is a Statement and how to make a statement to open an argument in a court.

a) "Defendant is fraud" This is your opinion. This is not

#lawyers #lawstudents
2/ a Statement for purpose of argument.

b) "Defendant has cheated me." This is again, your opinion. This is not a Statement for purpose of argument.

c) "Defendant cheated me of 50 lakh rupees by giving promise of giving a flat". This can do. The Judge

3/ can understand what is your problem.

Judge can then ask you, "Why do you say so? What is your basis for saying so?"

Now here you are supposed to answer with some evidence (documents or other things) from which it is obvious that you might be speaking truth.

Thread on need for lawyers and lawstudents to participate in public debates

1/ If you are a lawyer or law student, I can say,

"Vasant J Desai, my senior, used to say, 'Contribution of thoughts is the greatest contribution one can make to mankind'

#lawyers #lawstudents
2/ You can contribute your own thoughts on social media on any platform..

It may also improve your verbal expressions and presentation writing skills.

#lawyer #law #socialmedia #lawstudents
3/ It can also improve your arguments in courts.

Expressing one's thoughts, coherently, in a string of words is a skill required in legal profession..

There need to be an order and a subtle curtsey to opposite side, in whatever we may say.

.@unc_law students and #lawstudents throughout the country (particularly 1Ls):
With #finalexams approaching, many of you may be thinking about working/updating a #lawschool outline. Many of you may also be looking for additional practice questions and final exam resources and tips. I provide some below.
Many of you may have access to outlines already (some you created, some provided by bar vendors, some online, and some circulated among students).

I feel I must make this PSA: If you are considering financing anything through @CapitalOne, be very cautious. I have now gone 10 months without being able to legally drive my vehicle due to negligence on capital ones behalf, and they are trying to take zero responsibility for it.
I have been a long time customer, have 100% on time payment records, and continue to make a truck payment while unemployed for five months during Covid. Capital oneโ€™s negligence not only cost me a ton of stress, but made it impossible for me to take jobs due to the fact that I
did not have a legal vehicle. It has been approximately two years since I refinance through them and they have still failed to properly transfer my information so that I can register this. I have spent so much time and effort taking off of work, lost money, paid fees to the DMV,

Every year when the Nigerian Law School (NLS) results are released, my heart is heavy because itโ€™s immediately clear that the NLS grading system needs to be examined.
#nigerianlawschool #nls #lawschool #nigeria
Last year, the success rate was amazing. However, this year in a class of 2515, approximately:
25% failed the exam
42% had a pass
25% had a second class lower
3% had a second class upper
0.19% obtained a first class.

#nigerianlawschool #nls #lawschool #nigeria
I interact with young Nigerian lawyers daily. This is not a fair representation of their capacity. Less than 4% of the entire class had excellent results. These are not good statistics by any standard.
