Hello There!

The Expert Bharati Kumari has in an excellent way answered how you can pursue Law and that too related to computer engineering.

I would like to add some more points to your fantastic query, which is unique and not asked in general. Therefore I appreciate your thought of doing Law after computer Engineering.

Since you are a Computer Engineer, you are very much into the technical aspects of computer / IT engineering. Your skills are very much required for new innovations and application oriented engineering, testing, etc.

Considering the complexities of technology, businesses all over the world, pursuing Law after computer engineering is good. However I would recommend you to gain a sizable amount of work experience in the computer / IT industry before you actually think for doing Law.

Please understand that though you learn Cyber Law, which is related to the technology and computer field, you may not get full fledge employment opportunities as lawyer or consultant.

If you aim to become a Cyber Law Specialist, then you need to be a Law Graduate by doing the LLB course from a college recognised by the University and the course approved by Bar Council of India. After Computer Engineering and may be by doing a small cyber law course will not help you to get employment.

Computer Engineering knowledge will certainly help you understand the dynamics of the cyber crime, but please remember that ultimately it will be the law, jurisprudence, conveyancing and pleading skills which will be important and not computer engineering skills.

However as a value add, you can definitely doa cyber law short term course through online or par time basis, but if you are thinking for a full fledged career in cyber law or computer and IT related laws, then being a Law Graduate is very much required and recommended.

Best Luck
