Oh, the legacy we leave behind. Sometimes, people can’t fathom the things they do that leave an indelible mark on all that they touch. Dr Lalit Bhasin, President, Society of Indian Law Firms, is one such legal titan with more than 60 years of experience in the legal profession, arming him with wisdom and showcasing his unwavering commitment to the pursuit of justice. As someone dealing with human conflict, resolution and the unending quest for equilibrium for more than half a century, he signifies that even as the years pass by, principles can remain steadfast and indomitable. And Dr Bhasin’s career and life almost mirror the growth of the legal profession in post-Independent India.

In this episode of CAM Radio’s Clear Cut in conversation with our Managing Partner Cyril Shroff, Dr Bhasin shares his unique perspective, insights and stories that have shaped his illustrious career & explores being the Chairperson of the Bar Council of India (BCI) for 4 years, which is said to be unheard of, being inspired by lawyers in his family, asking Bollywood performer Raj Kapoor to raise funds for the BCI, setting up a reference library for junior members of the Bar who don’t have money to buy books, resurrecting the Bar Association of India, the legal profession boosting India’s economic growth, the legal space being a profession vs being a business, the role of AI in the world of law and more.
