Yash Patel, Managing Partner, J & Y Advocates
A versatile defense litigator with experience in the representation of individuals and corporate entities, Yash Patel (Managing Partner, J & Y Advocates) is adept in defending several highprofile clients in criminal cases, personal laws, and corporate law. He is a panel advocate for Ahmadabad District Cooperative Bank & Gujarat State Cooperative Bank. Yash grew up in a family of lawyers with his father having an experience of over 35 years in the field of law. Right from his childhood, he has been subconsciously exposed to the world of law. The rush of defending clients against unfair attacks or assisting them to prosecute others who have harmed them and the look of satisfaction on their faces after months of anxiety is something that interests Yash the most in this profession. Legal practice requires critical thinking and coming up with a unique solution or strategy after in-depth research is a recipe for a good night's sleep for the diligent advocate. He enjoys getting into the nitty gritty of laws, core procedures, principles of legal drafting, the art of advocacy, and every single aspect of being a lawyer. He strongly believes what Aaron Hurst says - “Make your life matter and have fun doing it”

Top 10 Indian Leaders from University of Illinois Chicago Alumni – 2023
The Indian Love for Oversees Education
According to a report by RedSeer, as many as 1.8 millions of Indians are estimated to spend $85 billion on education abroad by 2024.. The global professional opportunities, world class universities, freedom of living, and quest to explore different cultures are some of the reasons attracting India students to foreign universities. The Indian education system requires students to focus on courses that are a part of their main studies, whereas students can mix and match their courses in most international universities and colleges. This gives the students freedom to explore the subjects of their interests. Students are also given choice to take elective courses and explore their other interests.
The World of Illinois
The University of Illinois was founded in 1867, and is one of the largest public universities by enrolment at Chicago. The university contains 16 schools and colleges and offers more than 150 undergraduate and over 100 graduate programs of study. I also operates as a Research Park home to innovation centers for over 90 startup ompanies and multinational corporations, including Abbott, AbbVie, Caterpillar, Capital One, Dow, State Farm, John Deere, GSI, and Yahoo, among others.
