About the Topic
As a law student, we might often get confused as to how to choose the best law school for yourself.
How do we choose a path for ourselves in the future?
As the world moves towards Delta Lawyering, we need to move towards a lawyer who has some specialized knowledge and skills. Being a general lawyer is not enough, we need to be a specialized lawyer.
Join us as we take you down the wonderful world of Sports Law, Intellectual Property law and everything else in between.
