Hi Disha,


First of all its very good to know that still there are people showing interest in Legal field today. Before I even go ahead and explain you what is good for you or anybody who is interested in doing law, let me clarify the myth related to becoming a lawyer or an Advocate for that matter.

The scope for a person who has done LLB or LLM are vast today in any country weather it be only India or Abroad. Of course if you do LLB from some other country the laws of that country will differ from our Indian Laws, but what I am trying to convey you here is the value is of a Degree and that is LLB which you hold after completing your LLB. Legal profession is considered as one of the best profession in the world today because of the style, class, attitude, personality, knowledge and strength attached with the profession.

Coming back to your question weather it is good for you or not??? Well it is only you who can decide what is good or bad for you no body else can does that. I can guide you or suggest you or make you familiar with what are the scope you have once you complete LLB.

There are two kinds of LLB courses running now days in India and those are (1) After you complete your Graduation you enrolled yourself for a 3 Year LLB and (2) After you complete your 10 + 2 you enrolled yourself in a 5 Years of LLB. This 5 Years LLB course is an integrated course which includes your graduation plus LLB and plus point of doing 5 Years LLB is it saves your 1 year. Generally in order to get LLB Degree you have to complete you graduation which is for 3 years and than 3 years of LLB combining both it takes 6 years after completing your 10 + 2. However after completing your 10+2 if you enroll yourself directly into 5 years integrated course you can get LLB degree + Graduation Degree in just 5 Years provided you don't get fail in any of the year.

Most of the Banks, Corporate Houses, Law Firms and Government Legal Posts prefer 5 Years LLB candidate in today's world.

If you have interest in reading things like novels, story books I would prefer you should opt for LLB because it takes lot of reading in order to pass LLB exams, my personal experience.

Scopes are you can become a Legal Advisor in any of the Banks Legal Department, you can join any of the Law firm or if you have any relative who is already into litigation practice you can join them and start practicing in courts.

If you want to do something different from others, you can do courses like Diploma in Paralegal, which can open doors for you to go and work as a paralegal in foreign nations. Yo can become a Solicitor of UK by just completing one written exam of Law Society of UK. You can become an Associate to an US Attorney and help them doing research work. You can join e Discovery Companies as a Project Managers or Project co-coordinators.

There are so much more than what I just explained, but in order to do so first you will have to decide. There are always scope in every industry and stream the only difference is in some fields the scopes are too many and in some the scopes are very less. Legal field is a profession today where the scopes are too many.

There are many entrance exams to be taken if you want to take admission in any of the top Law School in India, the information of which can be easily availed from Google.

I hope you are satisfied with my answer and this will help you to choose what you really want to choose as a profession. If you need any further assistance or more details about the same you can contact me anytime here.

I wish you all the very best and wish you a good luck.

My Dear Disha,




I am glad that you are interested in Law field and I think you have the passion and ambition to study law.


\I am glad that you approached CareerGuide.com for seeking guidance and help in your career query.






'Law' is a field that any person of any field can pursue, however to get successful in law, you need to have passion and confidence and need to build the required skills and ability and competence to succeed.




My Dear, being an English Honours is not at all hindrance to pursuing a career in Law.




Today Law has not remained confined to only Civil or Criminal... but as you may be knowing that technological advacement has given rise to technological thefts, crimes which are called as Cyber Crimes. Laws of Information Technology and also litigations, cases related to this field are on the rise. Simultaneously Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) is also one demanding legal area where there is a requirement of legal professionals to handle the Copyright, Patents, Trademarks litigations. Also there is scope in major back end legal work like drafting, liasioning, etc. which also requires legal professionals.




By pursuing Three Year Full Time LLB course one can get into legal field. Further you can also do Masters in a specific law field of your choice, where specialisation in cyber law, IPR laws is available.




LLB course needs to be done from a recognised college which is approved by Bar Council of India compulsorily. After LLB you can either join a law firm or a legal department in a company or can become an independent advocate/lawyer.




If you ask me whether to pursue English honours or Law course, then I would say that it depends on your passion, confidence and instinct.




I would here recommend you to undergo a psychometric test which would give you a clear idea as to what are your strengths, weaknesses, passion, interests, personality, etc.




Best Luck My Dear... I am sure you will do goo in your life and career!
