How has your entrepreneurial journey been so far? What factors motivated you to establish Lexo Learning?
Driven by an enduring passion for teaching, I seamlessly transgressed from my active corporate law practice into academia. Joining
NMIMS as an assistant professor, I swiftly ascended to the esteemed position of Associate Dean within four years, over seeing the growth and coordination of multiple campuses. Subsequently, I spearheaded the D. M. Harish School of Law, leading curriculum development, process establishment, and system creation. Recognizing the glaring gap in legal education, particularly in technology-driven domains, I founded Lexo Learning, a unique teched platform catering to lawyers, law students, and academicians. We aim to bridge the divide between technology and legal implications, with plans for expansion into other domains.

Why was Mumbai chosen to be the breeding ground of your company? How has been the place favoring you so far in your operations?
Being based in Mumbai was a conscious decision on my part. I have called this city my home since 2010, and it holds a special place in my heart. Mumbai's professional ethos is unparalleled, characterized by a swift and professional approach. The city fosters a vibrant network and abundant contacts within academia and the legal fraternity. Moreover, with the rapid growth of technology and tech law in Mumbai, it presents an ideal environment for the establishment of my platform. It's truly the perfect location for what I aim to achieve.

Elaborate about the technology framework built within Lexo Learning’s solutions. Also, which are the latest technology trends that the platform is planning to adopt?
When I established Lexo Learning, my vision was clear: to empower law students, lawyers, and academicians with knowledge about Artificial Intelligence (AI). Law students, on the brink of entering the field, must grasp AI's impact and understand terms like ML, IoT, Deep Learning, NLP, and LLM. For lawyers, AI can enhance research, reading, and writing, enabling them to focus
more on analysis, delivering higher quality outcomes at a lower cost. Academicians, too, benefit from AI tools, which enhance research, personalized learning, and institutional processes. Along with AI Education, it is also important to understand the limitations, ethics, and regulations surrounding AI Usage, globally and in India. With my background as a lawyer, academician, and law student, I comprehend the ethical integration of AI into legal practice and education. To accommodate busy lawyers, our courses are tailored for weekends, making AI accessible and understanding its complexities. Lexo aims to democratize AI knowledge, foster efficiency, and drive growth in the legal profession.

What is the future destination you are heading towards?
In our pursuit of scaling up, Lexo Learning is prioritizing three key areas. Firstly, we have integrated with a SaaS platform, ensuring mobile accessibility and enabling self-paced learning with synchronous and asynchronous modules. Additionally, we offer law students the opportunity to join our internship and placement program, conducting sessions to optimize their professional journey with guidance from esteemed advisors in the Indian legal industry. For lawyers, we provide unbiased one-on-one consultations, curating a global selection of legal tech products with pricing, past performance, and functionalities, assisting them in making informed decisions. We aim to expand our reach across domains, making our user friendly app conducive to on-the-go learning, and offering certifications and personalized consultations for law firms and litigation offices. Our dedicated research wing produces articles and blogs on the latest developments in legal tech and AI, ensuring our readers stay well-informed.
