Go places with a law degree!

From writers and politicians to freedom fighters and journalists, lawyers have donned many hats with great success. The Father of the Nation, Mahatma Gandhi, and India's first president, Dr Rajendra Prasad, were highly sucessful lawyers.

Law is one of the most popular career choices in India. Traditionally, students could specialise in either civil or criminal laws. However, this concept has changed and now students can opt to specialise in any of the options offered like patent laws, corporate laws, etc. A degree in law not only lets you practice as a lawyer but also opens up career options in corporate management, legal services and administrative services.

In India, legal education has been traditionally offered as a three-year graduate degree conferring the title of Bachelor of Laws (LL.B. / B.L.). But that has changed and students interested in making a career in law can either do a three-year law course after graduation in any discipline or a 5 years’ course after 12th class. In fact, the 5 year program is seen as a better option.
