What after LLB?

By : Rangam sharma on 30 January 2012 Report Abuse Print Print this
 



15 years ago-A general advice which a law aspirant would get from his near and dear ones-

 

DO NOT  THINK ABOUT GETTING AN LLB DEGREE IF YOU DON’T HAVE A GOOD BACK UP OR A FAMILY FULL OF ESTABLISHED LAWYERS.

 

15 years later-

 

The above mentioned lines has lost its intensity and force. A total fallacy.

 

Following are the opportunities awaiting for a fresh law graduate.

 

Advocate-The Indian Advocates Act,1961[1]recognises only one generic 'advocate'- authoritative legal professionals in the country. Advocates are the only recognised class of persons entitled to practise law.

 

Solicitors-Advises government on the legal matters and submits a statement of important cases to attorney general for India for his opinion or appearance in the supreme court as necessary.

 

Every high court from time to time conduct judicial service examination for vacancies in judiciary for metropolitan magistrates,civil judges,etc.

 

Most large companies need in house legal counsels and require professionals to advise on important decisions, besides the drafting of agreements and undertakings. The eligibility criteria, working conditions and pay scales vary from company to company but most do require a fair degree of experience in this profession.

 

In addition to basic qualifications a company secretary might ordinarily posses a law degree, companies do prefer law graduates.

 

A master's degree is a must to be teacher in law subjects in the realm of academics. Moments in academia can be quite demanding, as a lot of study and academic preparedness is required.

 

Those with a flair for writing could think of becoming legal correspondents. This writing could well mature into writing legal texts and research articles alternatively it could mean a career in creative writing. Further The law books publishing companies, publishers of law journals and court journals require legal editors for editorial works.

 

A background in law would prove advantageous in tackling administrative and legal education in civil services. In addition to this law is a good option for both preliminary as well as the main examination.

 

The military departments appoint the judge advocate generals. They deal with the case within these departments.

 

Apart from this the Government departments have their own legal sections. The law officers, assistants in these institutions serve the purpose of drafting, representing in courts etc. Legal consultants occupy very prominent position in our country, they help in consultancy on legal matters to individuals and companies, corporations or government agencies.

 

Finally the most prestigious examination of our country- UPSC [2]. The department of legal affairs in the union ministry of law and justice has provided for the Indian legal service for its internal convenience. This is an All- India service, with candidates being recruited through UPSC on the grounds of their experience in the legal profession. The posts covered under the legal services are law officers, legal assistants, deputy legal advisors and legal advisors.

 

Carol meter Shanks [3] had aptly quoted “You can find all the reasons for not doing a thing, or you can find some reasons for doing it. If the reasons for doing it are good, then you have the courage to try it, and work out the problems as they come up”- With so many options available, Why would anyone be scared to join this field. Another mystery solved why youngsters so attracted towards the legal profession are. In nut shell Abundance of vacancies, head spinning money and less crowd. The answer lies in front of us.

Yes, there are numerous opportunities now available for the Law Graduates. However, still back up of established family of lawyers and 'connections' in judiciary/executive are relevant indeed .
