It was extremely informative and very helpful. The best part was that the fact that I am not from a legal background, did not hinder me from understanding the concepts that were explained in such accessible terms by Anjali ji. Kudos for conducting such an insightful workshop! Thank you to SoOLEGAL for organizing it!

I have received the link. Thank you so much! I apologize for these multiple messages. I was unaware of how the system worked so I kept clicking on 'send' a few times so I didn't realize it would result in multiple messages.
