PIECE OF ADVICE
When you write, write like a lawyer, as just copying and pasting won’t land you anywhere. You should always concentrate on complex issues in these matters. You should also try to write paper on simple words for juniors, not complex ones. Also, the paper should be in active form and not passive form to capture the interest of audience, she added.
She gave a special advice to budding corporate lawyers. You need to focus specifically on GST. There are more matters of claim in GST that you could be seen today. And because of the introduction of GST, most are lying to tax regimes and cannot be claimed as the tax money. On the other hand, there are lots of problems with refunds in GST. So she shares that it holds a great scope as well.
First of all, law students must have patience, as they expect package will be high after graduation. But you will need to study more and gain more practical knowledge when you come in a practical job. You need to manage customers and have to be patient for that. Secondly, you have to do hard work and you have to constantly update yourself that you need to be ready for the whole day. Lastly, management of the time is very important, she added.
Legal drafting is one of the essential skills that a law student should polish in his or her time at a related law school. Legal texts full of industry jargon and sophisticated sentencing is enough to place off even the foremost astute English aficionados, including the typical client. The key to drafting legal documents that are lenient to read and interpret is the use of direct language, simple sentences, and therefore layman's terms.
It is very important for every entrepreneur and a start-up company to draft the company charter, which includes Memorandum and Article of Association. It defines the company’s scope of work and its internal management. These two documents are considered as the supreme legal documents forming the company’s constitution. Therefore, it is important to draft them with clarity and precision.
Advocate Nivesh Sharma in his interview talks that any law student should start developing his/ her skills from the first semester itself. He said that gaining experience is the only asset which can build any person future. Running behind money can give you happiness, but knowledge can grant goodwill and pleasure both. Every law student should work from the ground level, i.e. from Non-Governmental Organizations to Supreme Court; there should be steps identified by every person. Doing a large number of an internship is not vital for success, but doing the internship and gaining different and new positive aspects of life from each internship is valuable for the future. He concluded by saying that peace of mind is necessary for a person to hone, as, in the field of law, frequent changes are very prevalent.
