Hello


Thank you for choosing Mera career guide and writing to us. I am happy to guide you today. I understand you want to study law abroad but practice in India. As you have already planned to practice law in India, I don't see a point in studying abroad. Studying in the UK will eventually teach you laws of that country and it is not going to help you practice in India. But you could probably consider doing a Masters of Law, concentrating on a specific segment at abroad institutions. Studying a Masters in the UK and then practicing in India will strengthen your skills and knowledge application.

Practicing law in India requires you to understand the Indian constitution, its formation, its development, its laws and policies and I am sure abroad institutions are not going to lay emphasis on Indian laws at undergraduate level. If you seriously wish to study abroad then you may want to consider a practice abroad only. In this case, you coming back to India and practicing here cannot be possible.

I would suggest you choose to do your under graduate degree in India and practice here. Probably go abroad to do a Masters in Law with variations. Law is not just restricted to the civil. There are branches that focuses on International Business law, Company law, Banking and finance law, Commercial and corporate law, Computer and communications law, Environmental law, Human rights law, Immigration law, Economic regulation law, Competition law, Energy and natural resources law, Insurance law, Intellectual property law, International shipping law, Legal law, Media law, Family law, Labour law, Corporate accounting law, Medical law, Public & international law, public law and the tax law. You have these many branches to study abroad as part of a Masters in Law course that could facilitate your practice back in India.

The main reason I say studying undergraduate degree in India would be better for you is because, studying in the UK will give more emphasis on European law and you are sure to miss out Indian law. But studying a Masters in the UK in either of the above branches will complement your Indian undergraduate law degree and practice. For example, if you study Masters in International Business law in the UK, you are sure to utilise the study by applying the theories in Indian context. As you prefer to practice in India, studying at a Indian university will better help you, considering the emphasis that Indian universities give on our country theories. I hope this helps. Please feel free to write back if you have any further questions.

Wish you all the very best for your future. Good luck.
