Future Of Legal Profession In India
Being a lawyer in India has always been challenging in this country. In a country of 1.3 billion, it is difficult managing, upholding and protecting the law and making sure justice is served as it is a tiring and straining process. To support these billions there are more than a few lakh law- yers ready to go to court and help you get justice! Being a lawyer is one of the highest paying jobs as there is no limit to the fees you can charge to your clients for fighting for them. To handle intense study for over 5 years and then to dispute for weeks is no easy job.
For someone looking to avoid the filmy structure of a lawyer's work, Corporate law is a huge game-changing field to work in
To study law in India one does not need to belong to any particular field of subject and can become a lawyer in two ways. Firstly, by doing an integrated five year LL.B. course (B.A., LL.B./B.Com., LL.B./BBA, LL.B.) from any law college after their higher secondary education. Secondly, anyone who did not pick up law earlier can finish an undergraduate degree in any subject followed by a three year LL.B. degree. It is generally advised for students to have studied political science as a subject in school for an earlier introduction to the subject but it doesn't hinder the essence of studying law in future.
Like any profession, there is no one key task or role of a lawyer, any-one studying law can go into various specialisations and work in different fields which requires legal aid with the same educational degree. Criminal Law, Property Law, Environmental Law, Family Law, Business Law, Intellectual Property Laws and Corporate Laws are some of the key specialisation fields which students chose towards the end of their education according to their field of interest.
For someone looking to avoid the filmy structure of a lawyer's work, Corporate law is a huge game-changing field to work in. Corporate law provides the benefit to work with companies and handle their administration as well as provides all the perks that a person working in the top corporate fields receive. Studying an LL.B. course for five years does not end the educational scope as the future lies in higher education. Due to this, students aim higher and try to gain knowledge by doing masters and Ph.Ds. in law to become one of the core law framing parties of the nation as well as get a chance to rep-resent India on an international plat-form. Studying law requires continuous learning and evolving one's legal knowledge and understanding. It is a highly noble profession with the goal of bringing justice and equality to every section of society.
