Legal Drama series like Boston Legal and not only have a great popularity among common masses, but a cult following among the lawyers, especially the budding ones. Students in law schools across the world have been following these television series as religiously as their educational curriculum. And the reasons are obvious – not only these shows are fun to watch but also lend an insight into the practical and global workings of the legal world.
While there exists a certain suave in the way James Spader and Harvey Specter close their cases in courts, there is also a lingering conscience that motivates the lawyer in them. And then of course, you have the head strong and veteran Denny Crane with his famous analogy for ‘end of discussion’- “Denny Crane”.
The sitcoms have a global fan following and in India, the spokesperson of a leading law school Alliance School of Law said that the students are often seen discussing the cases that the sitcoms deal with. Sometimes, they are too impressed by the hair breadth escapes of the heroes while the other times they wish it could be a little more realistic.
And in order to let the students ingrain an unconventional and different streak in to their practice, Alliance School of Law often conducts mock court sessions where the to-be-lawyers discuss cases from the television series. They try to adjust these cases according to the Indian legal structure and brain storm so as to find different angles. This practice has led a plethora of meaningful discussions with enriching ideas from the students and faculty, all alike.

I Madhukar Angur would always advocate about “Following your Dreams”.Therefore I would like to recommend this story to students .This is a fable about the importance of making the most of our lives, even if our goals run contrary to the norms of our flock, tribe or neighbourhood.

This is a story for people who follow their dreams and make their own rules; a story that has inspired people for decades.“Follow your dreams” is an inspirational mainstay: probably the most commonly expressed inspirational concept ever created. It encourages us not to stay content in our safe existence, but to make a leap, to follow the passion that would drive us if we gave it the chance.

Madhukar Angur further states the importance of a comprehensive study for anticipating all the possible potential crises for an organization. It becomes important to ensure proper monitoring systems and practices for the detection of early warning signals of any predictable crisis. Crisis management proves to be more effective than risk management which is limited to identifying the potential threats and figuring out the best possible ways to overcome those threats. On the other hand, Crisis Management involves finding ways to deal with the threats before, during and after their occurrence.
