I do not remember my grades. Neither do most other successful lawyers you will meet.
Yes, sir. Yes, madam. Please note that if you ever applied for a scholarship to study at a famous international law college, your grades may come in handy.
Please, therefore, put learning skills that lawyers actually use in their work, rather than chasing grades. It never works out well unless you learn the skills.
Again, focus on learning skills. Then focus on demonstrating those skills in internship, ideally long term internships.
Yazad did his BBA LLB from JGLS. He got a PPO from Wadia Ghandy based on his internship. In his own words, if Wadia came to recruit from his college, he won’t make the shortlist. How did he get an internship and then the PPO?
This led to his being given more work than the usual proofreading and printing out documents!
I keep saying that learning practical skills is critical. You don’t necessarily need to learn it from a course offered by us, a good alternative is to learn from a mentor who is ready to invest the time in you to teach important skills.
Subhro went to HNLU and flunked all his papers in his first year. Despite the year loss, when he reached 5th year, he was bang in the middle of the batch as per CGPA. However, that does not assure a campus placement.
Subhro does not think it was his practical skills that helped, but he spoke well and had won moots. His strategic inputs were good during the interview, which led to his selection.
Even if you do not have practical knowledge when you are graduating, if you have the right connections and good relationships, that could come to your rescue.
What are you doing to stand out?
