I am considering Biology. Can I do Law even after studying Biology. Not able to decide how should I go about it
Dear aspirant,many thanks for your question, In fact you have asked a practical question, where the student is in dilemma and could not decide, which career path he or she should choose. As you have mentioned in your question, that you wish to become an advocate and you have interest in science. In fact this could be a could combination of a successful lawyer. Now you will get admission in 11 standard, therefore, you should go for science subjects like physics , chemistry and biology. Her I am specially mentioned biology and not maths, the reason being that at certain stage of lawyer practice he or she encounters many cases where knowledge of biology is very important to understand and solve the typical cases. On the other hand, the lawyer now a days does not mean to look after the normal criminal or civil cases. There are other local, national and international issues such as patenting of process or products, environmental issues, socio biological issues and many more.Your knowledge of science during 11 and 12 standard will give you an outlook for science. You will understand the basics that you will employ during your practice at any stage.After passing 12 with very good marks, you try for CLAT (Common Law Admission Test) exam and after passing it you will be eligible to get admission in top Law colleges or universities in India. In fact the admission in Law through CLAT is very prestigious. If you get good college, then you will have better exposure of the subject and yow will be groomed during your degree program. In India there are fourteen Law Universities which offer various five years intergrated courses in Law. The common examples are BA LLB, BSc LLb, BBA LLB, BSW LLB, BCom LLB (Honors).To be eligible to appear in CLAT exam, one should have 10+2 from a recognized board with 45% marks for SC and ST candidates it is 40%) and should be below 20 years of age (22 years in case of SC, ST and Physically disabled persons). After selection through CLAT in any university and then after graduation the post graduate course in Law (LLM) is availble for any one who scored 55% marks in LLB (50% for SC and ST category candidates).Now you have decide that you wish to fulfill your dream of LLB through CLAT (means prestigious universities) or through normal procedure.With all my best wishes,
Hello My Dear Legal Career Aspirant,
Take Stream Suggestor Test to Know Stream after 10th --> Click Here
Good to hear you have interest in both Science and Law subjects.
However to take the first step, studying Science will keep you fit all career life as your future decisions will definitely be based on this first degree. As you have mentioned you do like Science, I would sincerly advice you to choose a science stream at school. I see you are currently passing out of your X class. So, study science subjects at school and therefore ideally pick the Physics, Biology and Chemistry group known as the PCB group or else the PCMB with Physics, Chemistry, Math and Biology. However as you have interest in being into law in future, I would say studying a three year science degree is more sufficient rather than doing a four year Engineering degree in science.
My dear Student,
It is a fact that no study goes waste.Education has no limit and no age bar.You should not go against your interest.You should take Science subjects.I happy to note that you have a goal to fulfill your interest.After completion of graduation in any stream you should appear for competitive exam and take admission in Law College in Pvt.or in Govt.College under University.You will be on track and do well with all sincerity.Also interact with students,faculty of Law College,advocates to get best of guidance and advice.
