We chat with Kushan Chakraborty, as he gives us a crash course on India's dynamic but over-burdened Judicial System, and Legal Services at-large. Kushan is a Corporate Lawyer from Cornellia Chambers (a Gurgaon-based Law Firm), a product of Christ College Bangalore, a Podcast enthusiast, and most importantly a passionate proponent of the law's power to transform society. Today he gets candid on:
His Journey as a Lawyer i.e. The Why? 


Brought up in a family where engineering and medicine were considered the best career choices, Kushan’s journey towards becoming a lawyer has not been a straightforward one. We talk about his motivations and inspirations, the factors that persuaded him to take up law in the first place. We go on to discuss his move to Cornellia Chambers as a Co-Founder, and his experiences there.


The Question of Judicial Access


We move on to talk about the pertinent questions of affordability of senior counsels, pendency of cases, and judicial overreach – leading to an interesting discussion about how these play into the loss of efficiency of the judicial process, and how these issues can be addressed. 


The Legal Ease of Doing Business in India


Being one of our main fields of interest, the conversation eventually moves on to Business – but this time, we shed light on the legal aspect of it. We have an in-depth discussion about how legal policies impact businesses and companies, touching upon topics like the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code (IBC) and the National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT).
