Ms. Damini Ganguly, 4th year student, inquired about the necessity of Litigation experience for a person looking to work in a commercial sector; Mr. Bhatt put in his suggestion in simple words ‘unless you are a prodigy, experience is the most valuable asset one can have’, core litigation experience being the cornerstone for every legal professional in any field must be prioritized by students.
