My Dear Law Masters Aspirant,






Thanks for coming to CareerGuide.com for seeking clarification aboutto your query. Your query is one of the unique queries I get. In my more than seven years of career counselling experience, your query is very different and focused. Being an educationist and having counselled many students from diverse fields like commerce / management / law / finance / engineering, law students were quite large in number and their queries used to be generally about how to get into legal field.




Your query is really a different one with a different perspective. I would like to compliment this!




Relevance of Masters:




Dear Aspirant, I would like to tell you that doing masters irrespective of the field or domain has become very important in recent times and has been considered as a great positive point for a candidate for his / her resume and candidature not only for getting job but also for those who are interested in being an independent consultant or entrepreneur.




Getting a domain specialisation is only possible through a master degree in that field. Domain specialisation has become a thing of proudness.




Growing complexities in business, ever growing frauds, ever growing specialised requirements, have all made it necessary to get a masters degree.




Masters in law field:




In India, one can be called as a masters in law by educational qualification. As you may be knowing the LLM that is Masters in Legislative Law is the educational qualification which makes a person a masters in law. Here, I would like to tell you that this LLM degree should be done from a recognised University and the college from which this is done should be approved by the Br Council of India (BCI). If not, then this masters is not a valid degree for practicing legal profession.




Scope:




Scope for master degree law holders is tremendous in India and abroad. Legal firms and corporate legal departments definitely need law master degree holders. Due to increasing business complexities this need is rising.




After LLB, one can do his / her masters in specialised domains like cyber law, family law, civil, criminal law, forensic law, etc.




These masters candidates are very much required for corporates and are employed on full time basis.




I hope the above clarified your query.




Best Luck
