Which field of law has greater scope today and in future? What will be the salary of that field?
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 andorganisations (eg, companies and charities) seeking legal advice and representation. Barristers:barristers advise on specific legal issuesand 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 ORBA/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.
Hope this helps, you make a choice.
Wish you good luck...........
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:
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.
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, Apurva Kumar Pandya, PhD

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.
