Hey Selishma,

Firstly I would like to say the answer to your question lies in the question itself.

Before I begin answering, please note that th route to LAW, is either pursue Graduation in any stream and then appear for LLB
Or, after 12th any stream, pursue either a B.Sc LLB or a BA LLB, which is a 5 years course.

In case interetsed in The National School Of LAW and its colleges, you would have to clear their entarnce examination called CLAT. In-case of other coilleges, they conduct their own entrance exams which is mentioned on their respective websites, which you need to keep a tab on.

First let me begin by a brief introduction to what a Corporate Lawyer does:

  • He is mainly the one who works in the interests of the corporation or industry he works for
  • Helping them with their business transactions, formalities, litigation, investments and more importantly taxes and negotiations.
  • He advises his client about existing LAW and helps him follow it correctly
  • He is the one who helps the client save himself from future legal disputes, by advising him on ways and measures to be followed during business deals
  • Helps the clients protect their assets and save from Taxes
  • Helps in negotiation with other business partners

So in short, a Corporate lawyer, plays a very important role in an organization, rather the backbone of the organization.

Thus Apart from the knowledge of LAW which of course is his foray, other qualities needed would be:

  • Complete knowledge on the Business or functioning of the corporate
  • Good negotiation skills
  • Communication and most importantly convincing skills
  • Diplomatic
  • Debating Skills
  • Analytical Ability
  • Foresee the future

Hope this helps.

Wish you good luck..........
