We received a lot of queries at our Instagram handle, students asking why they should become a technology lawyer.
Mostly, when people come across something related to ‘technology law’, they get nervous.
But the truth is, it is easy to learn and you just need to be little focused.
There are a lot more opportunities in technology law. Remote work opportunities have added more jobs.
There are few myths about technology lawyer. Like:
- #1: Tech Law is the sum-total of the Information Technology Act, Rules, Notifications, Amendments and case laws – the scope for a lawyer appears to be very limited in the sector.
- #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.
Do not get moved by these because technology law is one of the most important emerging areas for big law firms, for boutique law firms and for independent practitioners who want to build a name for themselves, and the market will become sophisticated in the next 5 – 10 years.
This is the time you can get into this.
