Advocate Vivek Tripathi stressed on the importance of law students and aspirants in making the ultimate career decisions for themselves. He said that while there are plenty of opportunities available on the job front, it is the responsibility of law aspirants to have a specific goal in mind and work hard to realize that goal.

Law is a crucial component in other major fields like politics, business and academics. Speaking on formal law education at length, He also said that usually there are three-year and five-year law courses offered by colleges and universities.
