Lexpeeps honest opinion:

  • Law students exploring their interests and trying to give an edge to their writing skills.
  • Want to excel in their interpersonal skills like writing, communication.
  • 1st, 2nd law students shall participate as these are the opportunities that give them exposure.
  • All the law students trying to bring laurels to them.
  • Knowing and not knowing about the subject doesn’t matter if you are willing to work hard and research a lot about your topic.

Note: This is just a suggestion from Lexpeeps side to everyone reading. It has been seen that in this hard time, students are panicking and doing everything and anything just to add on to their CV/Resume, even the things that are not going to add so much value to their CV’s.
