- Do you sometimes feel that the growth opportunity in traditional areas of law practice is limited? Do you want to specialise in areas which are going to be pandemic-resistant?

- #2: You need a degree in science, or engineering, or background in computers to understand and excel in tech-law.
- #3: Lawyers from India and developing countries in Asia and Africa can only work for clients in their local jurisdiction and cannot work for foreign startups in the Silicon Valley, Tel Aviv, Berlin or US law firms as they are not qualified to practice law in those jurisdictions.
