ABOUT LAW

Want to Pursue Law After 12th?

The role of a lawyer in today’s era has completely evolved and moved many moons away from black robes and white collars to swanky corporate offices and jobs in movies and the media. Lawyers are the most sought after people by corporations and individuals. From Mahatma Gandhi to Barack Obama, there is a long list of luminaries who have used the legal profession as a stepping-stone to unwatchable greatness. Students interested in making a career in law can either do a three-year law course after graduation in any discipline or a 5 years’ course after 12th class. In most cases, colleges run the 3 years’ course only for those whose main discipline in graduation is something other than law, or working professionals who want to do an LLB as an additional qualification.
