2: To Be A Lawyer (Litigator) In India

"The first 4-5 years, even though they involve a lot of hard work, are not nearly as tough as the next 5-7 years..." Our guest is Apoorv Tripathi, a lawyer in his late 20s, specifically a civil litigator. He studied in both India and the United States, working in the US for a year before moving back to work in India.  In our conversation, we trace his career path, compare corporate law to litigation, and discuss his views on law education in India and abroad. He breaks down the various branches within law as a profession and explains what traits are important for a good lawyer early in their career, recruiting paths for students and the reasons behind the uptick in the number of lawyers in India. We also go through the day-to-day of a litigator in India, including working at Indian courts and the unsaid realities of the profession.  This episode is sponsored by SproutBox, an awesome co-working space located in Delhi where the episode was also recorded (www.sproutbox.in).
