Law graduates can opt for most number of courses!

law courses

Gone are the days when we assumed that lawyers buried themselves under shelves and shelves of thick fat dusty rule books. Law graduates today opt for either a three or a five year course for their undergraduate studies. Students are exposed to mock trials and internships during the first two years where they learn to apply all their theoretical knowledge practically. During the third year, they are required to work with NGOs, Supreme and High Court Judges, national and international firms and companies. They learn to do their research meticulously. They also learn how to present their case before a court effectively.

In fact, a law degree gives them the freedom to explore the most number of diverse career options.

Only law graduates can work in all the three bodies – legislature, executive and judiciary – of the government.

The work life of a lawyer is quite exciting and they are paid handsomely for their knowledge. Fortunately, there are quite a few colleges in India where students can easily pursue their higher studies in law if they wish to.

  • Of course, they can always opt to do an MBA or a PGDM after they complete their LLB.

LLM is the acronym for a master’s degree in law. A graduate degree in law (LLB) with 55% marks is mandatory to gain admission into this course. They also need to have a degree certificate which has been approved by the Bar Council of India (BCI).

Premier Law institutions may conduct their own entrance exams. Students need to clear this exam and appear for an interview before they gain admission.

The students can really opt for a specialized line that he/she is keenly interested in. The available options are exciting and interesting indeed! Let’s take a closer look:
