For criminal practice, it is my opinion that going to court and studying case law is more helpful. In fact, practical exposure is more helpful than academic learning.

For commercial laws, an advance degree could be useful to gain further insight, however, it will depend on how much you can capitalise the degree in terms of translating it into legal practise or academics.

Visit educational consultants, like Edwise, Chopras International, etc. for a proper guidance on LLM courses/universities.

My welcome your valuable reply Sir.

But I would also like to know the career prospects. So apart from practising in the court is there any other field where I have an opportunity to work with criminology in Major?? What about NGO's, is there any scope??

Opportunties are created, and not explored. You should first decide what exactly you want to do with life/career, and then chose your optionals.

Besides NGOs, u could work for the govt. sector, in research, for colleges/academics, etc. with a criminology background.


Not sure of any other, since I dont practice criminal law.


Good luck.
