Thanks for insights. I think liberalization is only one aspect.
There are other things such as technology and AI that will remove most processes currently done by the junior lawyers in the larger firms.
There may be a hollowing out of that segment

Any advice in burnishing my CV for pivoting into a lucrative political post if one does not want to try for partner at a firm? Do some pro bono work at the grassroots level?

I think minister Sham and Pritam are excellent examples where lawyers have crossed over into politics with amazing career stability, satisfaction, and remuneration (Pritam's $385,000 package excludes his own law job and is far greater than lawyers at his PQE).
This is the kind of liti lawyers we need, thinking laterally and out of the box. I think you will go far whether in law or in politics compared to your sheltered colleagues who are content with their meagre lot.
