Law is emerging as a fastest growing profession. In these days of globalization and liberalization it is likely to get further momentum as more lawyers would be required to handle cases arising out of international trade and as a result of growing importance of WTO.



Lawyers are held in high self esteem in a civil society as they render valuable service to all segments of the society by getting their
constitutionaland legal rights enforced through courts- civil or criminal ,at all level of judiciary , that is trial court , high court , supreme court or quasi judicial institutions. Persons holding law degree or other higher legal qualifications have ample employment opportunities in private as well aspublicsector .




Persons possessing requisite qualifications are recruited for Indian Legal Service against various posts- Legal ad visor in department of legal affairs and legislative counsel in legislative department.



The officers can reach the level of secretary to the government of Indian with the passage of time according to their suitability. Likewise, legislative counsels are also appointed for official languages wing of the legislative department for Hindi and regional languages.



At the state level too, officers with legal qualifications are also appointed against similar posts. However designations may vary from state to state. Besides, law officers are appointed in almost all ministries/ departments/ undertakings of the government of India and state governments.
