I have 12+ yrs experience in software developemt and working as a prefessional @ MNC. I had similar query like you. I have done master of Mech Engg from one of the reputed college in India.
After experience in India and abroad, I have decided to study law at the age of 37.
1) Want to give different edge to my career. I can enter into legal dept of High Tech companies where I can understand technology, products.Earlier I wanted to go for MBA, but I compared the value addition along with the money I will be spending on the course.I found LLB has management essence also.
2) I can enter into patenting.
3) I can improve my social network (by attending college/profesor/seminars/guest lectures). I meet different people and see other side of professional life.
4)I can enter into any other field like Cyber Laws,International laws,Stock Exchange Laws,finance laws.
5)I can start my own company since I have knowledge of legal aspects which will boost up my confidence.
6) I can persue LLM/PhD in the subject which I will like most..
I have appeared for 3rd Sem exam and passed previous 2 exam without any backlog.
I really enjoy the studying the subjects.
So I will surely advice you to go for it if you really like to do the law managing your job.
