B.Tech and Law are completely different fields. Choosing between them is like Sophie’s choice. Both of them have great career opportunities and require constant hard work and motivation. It all depends on where the student’s interest lies. If some years down the line, he sees himself fighting for the right and getting justice to innocent people, he may think of going for law. Also, to pursue this career, the student needs to have a strong hold on the theory subjects because the law is about cases, sections, definitions, maxims and explanations. If the student is not confident enough that he can remember these, then he may drop the idea.

B.Tech, on the other hand; is an option to be taken if the student in interested in Computers, electronics or any technology related field. For this, the basic concepts of the students should be extremely strong in subjects like Mathematics and Physics. There are so many Universities all over the country which are known for their highly recognised professional degree in law. Nevertheless, there are colleges in engineering too which have International Recognition.
If the student is confused about the subjects and his ability to catch up to them, then one way is to see some online lectures of Law and Engineering both. Understand the lectures carefully and analyse the field in which your interest lies. If you think that you find Mathematics and the concepts of Physics very interesting, then B.Tech may be the right option for you. Alternatively, if you think that you are gaining momentum with the laws of the country and the way the legal system works, you may easily choose law.
Law is one of the most reputed degrees all over the world. A lawyer is a person to who people look forward to getting justice. To get a professional degree in law, a lawyer needs to get himself registered under the BAR. Studying law in countries like America and U.K is every potential lawyer’s dream. But to pursue this dream one has to pass several tests and challenges that come its way. Getting admission in law schools has become extremely difficult nowadays because of increasing competition among various students.

Top Colleges for B.Tech in India are:
The basic eligibility criteria for all the above these Colleges is that the candidate should have passed his 12th grade from a recognised board in India. There is a separate quota for SC/ST candidates. To enrol into law colleges and Universities, students need to give a Common Law Admission Test (CLAT). Some Colleges conduct their own admission tests. Engineering colleges grant admission on the basis of the student’s rank in IIT (Mains) and IIT (Advance). Any other type of detail about the college is mentioned on the official college website.
Another aspect which is to be considered is the duration of both the courses. Integrated law courses which combine 2 degrees together are a 5-year course while B.Tech is a 4-year course. So, candidates who want a shorter course may go in for L.L.B.
Certain aptitude and interest tests can also be taken my students online to judge their ability and interest in various fields. These tests help to choose a career path according to the personality and aptitude of the student. Getting yourself counselled is yet another way through which you can choose a career path. A counsellor would help you to know your strengths and weaknesses and guide you to choose the right career path which matches your overall personality. Thousands of students all over the world get their counselling done in order to ensure that what they are doing is correct for them.

Therefore, if you think your mind has a technical bend, you can confidently choose engineering as a career option but if you have the ability to read for long hours and analyse and interpret things logically, then law is where you should go. The only thing to remember in both these fields is that both of them require constant hard work and full dedication on part of the student.
