She pointed out the importance of writing on legal issues no matter how humble the platform initially even personal blogs. She said that in a crowded profession like law, one has to make ones mark by writing on those platforms which judges read. She stressed the importance of attending moot courts. She proceeded to explain why education in countries like the UK and USA is worth the expense given the networks one became part of as well as the manner in which legal education was imparted in institutions there.
