Hi There,

Interesting question but hope you do not choose a specialization based on the criteria you have put forth above.
Since eg, Civiul LAW may be one specialization which is doing good in market today, but you wish and are good with Criminal LAW. So you may not enjoy giving legal advice only, but wish to fight criminal cases.

Also keeping in mind, whether you wish to work as a Solicitor or a Barrister.
Solicitors: solicitors provide advice and assistance on matters of law. They are the first point of contact for people and
organisations (eg, companies and charities) seeking legal advice and representation.
Barristers:barristers advise on specific legal issues
and represent clients in court. They receive their information and instructions through a solicitor (and occasionally directly from the client), and are essentially self-employed.
When not appearing in court, they work in chambers where they prepare their court cases and arguments.

Choose on the basis of where your interests lies and your skills

Since I do not know your qulaification, just a brief overview of LAW course.
It can be pursued only after 12th any stream, by clearing the CLAT examination.
Here you have a choice, either pursue:
LLB: which is a 3 years course post 12th OR
BA/BBA/BS.C LLB: A 5 years course, whereby you also are provided with a bachelors degree of either Science or humanities or management.
Generally students prefer the 5 years course, since it has many options after Graduating.

Few Specializations available with the Role they play are listed below:

- Criminal Lawyer: Specialises in criminal laws CrPC, IPC, Evidence Act and various other penal laws.

  • Civil Litigation Lawyer:Specializes in civil laws e.g. taxation laws, excise laws.
  • Legal Analyst: Works for corporate firms or law firms and analyses laws pertaining to the sphere of the company and its operation.
  • Document Drafting Lawyer: Specialises in drafting various documents containing agreements, terms and conditions, case material, etc.
  • Legal Journalist: Covers crime beats, legal proceedings in courts, arbitration courts, international courts and arbitration events.
  • Government Lawyer: Works for the government and in close coordination with the police.
  • Family Lawyer:Family lawyers deal with all legal matters relating to marriage, separation,divorce, and legal issues relating to children. Family law also encompasses financial negotiations,inheritance issues and prenuptial contracts.

Hope this helps, you make a choice.

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

Dear Aspirant,

Choosing a career option or course based on what it will help you earn is a dangerous proposition you are making for your self. Chances are you will 90% fail.

Considering the changes in the legal system, technological advancements, below fields in law are having increased scope:

  1. Cyber Law
  2. Family Laws
  3. Criminal Law
  4. Corporate Law.

All the above fields have their own challenges and scope areas. For each the salary is different. If you are aiming to become just an employee in a company or join a lawyer firm, the salary is different.

Salary will increase according to your command over the law, intellect, logical thinking, interpretation and experience.

I would suggest you to choose an area for practice based on your command over the law subject and definitely you will earn good and keep earning good.

Best Wishes

Dear Aspirant,

Choosing law specialization should be based on skills and interest.

Apart from specializations mentioned by career experts, I would recommend two other specializations that may be of interest for you: Corporate law, and Intellectual Property law. These two specializations are also in good demand.

Finally as rightly recommended by Dr. Anand, choose the specialization based on your aptitude and command over the subject. Do not worry about what is the trend in the market. Your knowledge, skills and passion will help you earn name, fame and money in your area of expertise.

Best Wishes for your bright career in law,

Dear Aspirant,

Considering the technological advancements and the start up culture picking up in India, Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) Laws shall remain in news. There is scope for practice in IPR law area definitely. However as said by me previously and Dr. Pandya, definitely you should assess your strengths and likings and interests to choose an area for practice or employment.

Best wishes
