Hello Mayuri,  Since you have asked and are looking out for a course suiting or matching with CS, then I would suggest pursue LAW. Since CS deals majorly with taxation, income filing and their legal implications. Thus a sound knowledge of LAW would be helpful. The financial part is covered in the course itself. But incase you are not interested in LAW, then best would be to purue commerce, which would come in handy due to the finance concepts. Wish you good luck...

Further, if you wish to do LLB, you need a bachelors degree first, since LLB three years course is a post graduate degree course. 2. Foundation, Executive and Profession
