Lawlessness in Career choice

It may be a hazardous endeavour to choose a career, without knowing all the options.Every career is a good career. But not for every one. The choice of a career has a lot to do with the individual aptitude and preference. Everyone is different. Unfortunately, career choice is almost irreversible. So, Let’s not try to fit right key into the wrong lock and then curse the key or the lock or both.

Law is an option, the career conscious +2 students must consider. With encouraging news of NALSAR law graduates getting a salary of Rs. 9 lacs, the myths about law not for the toppers stand shattered. The law aspirants , therefore, can expect handsome packages in future, matching, if not better than those of their friends in reputed medical, engineering or management institutes.

Not long back, people had a misplaced perception about the law and lawyers. It was considered to be the last and always available choice. Thanks to the efforts put in by the prestigious institutes , including National law schools, the image has undergone a sea change, to the extent that law is now considered to be the career  of the future.

While choosing a career, it is also necessary to follow your heart and not head only. If being argumentative is what for which you have been scolded always by teachers and parents, law may be a career to reward you for that. If being analytical is your strength and you have an eye for the crux of the matter, LAW is for you.If you fancy yourself making statements, which may affect the life of millions, LAW is calling.

Let the sights of struggling lawyers , carrying the bulky files in the corridors of the courts and toiling hard , and failing, to convince the judge discourage you. Through these corridors only had some of the greatest lawyers , like Motilal Nehru,M.C.Chagla,Nani Palakhiwala, walked to the glories . And it is unimaginable to quantify their contribution.

 E.g. just visualize the efforts made by Nani Palakhiwala in the celebrated case of Keshavananda Bharati v State of Kerala to argue before the 13 learned judges of Highest Court of this Country. The longest judgment in the history of Independent India that put restraint on the power of the parliament itself to amend our constitution, probably would have not been possible, without painstaking efforts of Nani Palakhiwala . The entire nation felt grateful to this legal luminary and would always be so.

So, if you aspire to fill the colours in the canvas of your career, be ready to wear black. Add Law to your career choices and then be ready to contribute in reducing lawlessness in society.
