This email goes out to 1,290 South Asian legal professionals.
One Year In
Pani Cooler started a year ago. A year ago, I asked 117 of you if you had any roles for South Asian law students, who had been knocked around by the market and needed a leg up. Several of you contributed roles and made yourselves available to students. So I sent an email and asked people to spread the word. It spread.
The core insight is unchanged: take our small but powerful community, create a clearinghouse for economic opportunities, and watch it grow. It starts with jobs. But it's ultimately about every component of our professional well-being and growth.
So what comes next? Here are some goals
- Next quarter 10 people will find their next role through Pani Cooler.
- Next year 100 people to find their next role through Pani Cooler.

If you're tired of sitting around getting drinks or food in order to be social, this is different. We'll go for a stroll through Central Park as we reconnect with old friends and make new ones.

Sponsor: The Indie Guide To Building Your Legal Network
Part of the mission of Pani Cooler to is to help South Asian lawyers make the most of the powerful network of any legal professionals. I attribute any success I've had with my career to the relationships I've developed and grown. And I wrote the principles I used in The Indie Guide to Building Your Legal Network.
Here's what Amisha Patel had to say about The Indie Guide: "Your writing is clear and concise, and I like how you weave in personal anecdotes and stories from others. You also outline a very clear action plan. Even as someone not in the law school setting, I found this extremely valuable in thinking about ways to reinforce many of the lessons that needed reinforcing on how to present well in strengthening and nurturing my network."
