Overview:

A first of its kind which will help you to decide if you wish to study law and become aware of your own motivation. Don't skip the annexures, they will guide you for a long time to come. Written in a racy readable style reflecting the personality of the multi-tasking author

—Indira Jaising, Senior Advocate, Supreme Court

An instructive guide on the prospective experiences that one is likely to encounter while studying law and the choices that graduates must negotiate with soon after. Engaging, accessible and filled with anecdotes from her own experiences, this compendium offers well-meaning and tested advice for anyone contemplating a career in law. Immensely useful.

—Shashi Tharoor, MP

A must-read for every law student on day one at a law school.  Every law aspirant needs to read this to understand life at a law school.  This book will guide them appropriately to attain excellence at a law school for a rewarding career in law.  Sincere appreciations to the author who had been a role model at the law school. I take immense pride in being her teacher.

—Prof. Sanjeevi Shanthakumar, Vice-Chancellor, Gujarat National Law University

My first anguish after reading the manuscript was that Avani should have been my senior at law school, which could have fast-tracked my career graph! It is a lucid, non-legalese, smart book which clears the clutter and will launch the law school aspirant's ambitions as a practitioner,  educationist, activist, jurist and policy wonk. It does come not just from a smart author but importantly from someone with experiential learning and proving to be a successful lawyer, motivational speaker and public policy enthusiast. Simply a "must" as a personal copy for not only those who are pursuing law but also for all law school aspirants.

—Prof. V. C. Vivekanandan, Vice-Chancellor, Hidayatullah National Law University

For someone who is looking for an effective mentor, I would say this book is the perfect one. It has been very meticulously written, takes a broad view of things, and yet goes down into the specifics for the more essential topics. Overall it makes for easy reading, and I would recommend every law student looking to make the most of their law school experience to get hold of a copy.

—Manish Tiwari, Advocate, MP, Former Union Minister for Information and Broadcasting

A first-hand practical guide for systematically shaping the five long years at the law school. It answers the common doubts and questions law students have over the course of their education. It's like having an amazing advisor beside you, helping you in making intelligent decisions along the way. Right from mooting to networking, this book covers everything that a law student needs.  A must-read for those aspiring to be in law schools or beyond!!

—Prof. G.S. Bajpai, Registrar, National Law University, Delhi
