Law is a professional degree wherein a lawyer fights to get justice for the right. A lawyer is supposed to a responsible citizen of the country as he is the one who ensures order and justice in the society. There are hundreds legal acts and proceedings which a lawyer has to go understand. To become a lawyer, one needs to have the patience of sitting for long hours and studying theory.
