KARTHIK SOMASUNDRAM, PARTNER, KLAW ON STEPPING OUT OF THE COMFORT OF A LAW SCHOOL AND INTO THE REAL WORKING WORLD

lawzmag.com“Be prepared to work hard. There is really no shortcut there and no magic potion to make it work otherwise. Experience is the only teacher. Nothing in law school will prepare you for when you become a service provider. So it is only when you start working that you start learning bits that actually matter. Don’t stop because of setbacks and tough bosses. ‘Mistakes’ and ‘learning’ run parallel. If you don’t work, you won’t make mistakes and if you don’t make mistakes, you won’t learn. So don’t stop working or trying because of a mistake or because you are afraid of making other mistakes.”
