I recently spoke to around 20 in-house counsels, and asked them how things have changed since lockdown started.

What are their priorities and concerns in the post-COVID world?

What I learned was quite instructive!

Btw, if you are giving any in-house counsel job interviews in the next 12- 24 months, make sure you are able to explain how you can help the business with all these issues described here.

Even talking about these issues will set you apart.
If you are a litigator or a law firm lawyer, read these issues very thoroughly because this is what your clients are dealing with. Make sure you show sensitivity and understanding of their situation when you deal with your corporate clients next.

It’s not my fault that the work is not done!

I always watch out for people who would not take responsibility for the end result and want to keep such people at bay.

So does everyone who has the experience of handling a team, a business, or any responsible position.

There are two kinds of people out there - some of them have learned how to get things to work,
And there are those who can give you impeccable reasons for why things did not work.

I try to find how can I make things work when it is not supposed to work, and I have made a career out of it.

I was talking to the managing partner of one of the top law firms yesterday. They have over 200 lawyers according to LinkedIn, across 4 offices.

I was interviewing him for my book on 30 law firms that were started by lawyers under the age of 30 and made its mark.

I will not name him today, wait for the book.

I asked him what has been his strategy to attract top talent.
Internship programs, he said. They prefer when they can hire lawyers at the entry-level from their internship program. Long term interns preferred.

They do go to campus recruitment increasingly, but results are not comparable. Campus recruits leave sooner.

I already got a PPO. What can I do now to ensure that I crush it when I join my job as a new lawyer?

Recently I got a mail from a regular LawSikho subscriber. Here is the gist of what he had to say.

#PPO #job #lawyers #lawsikho #lawstudents
I already got a job in a top tier law firm after doing 5 corp law internships in top law firms. I am now in my last semester in 5th year. I never really got time to enjoy my college life, but now that I have finally got a job,
I want to spend the rest of my days in college enjoying myself. I was thinking of taking your course earlier, but I think I can give it a skip now.

When I read it, it reminded me of my 5th year in college.

It's a criminal offence to falsifying a legal instrument. But if the #MetPolice / #LBRUT do it, then there is not even an investigation. 12 years of silence. Evidence to prove it -
