‘Law’ is the major part of our constitution. Law is a set of categorized rules and regulations under which any society or country is governed. Law is one of the popular fields of education. Legal studies are in contact with almost every area of human life, reaching issues related to economics, politics, human rights, environment, business, trade and international relations.This field needs flawless debating skills. If you want to become a good lawyer, you must have good oral communication skills. A lawyer or an attorney represent their clients in the court so he/she must be a confident and efficient orator.

The law education in India is a three-year degree program. This three-year degree program is called LLB (Bachelor of Laws), LLB is an abbreviation for Latin word ‘Legum Baccalaureus’. For further education or post-graduation, students go for LLM (Master of Laws) which is an acronym for ‘Legum Magister’.
