This article is written especially for those who are planning to enter the legal profession. The law profession is one of the highest paying and is most in demand. Knowing law means having the power to tackle any problem. Laws run our country, and not everyone has the knowledge of it, and that is why there is a high demand for lawyers who can advise the individual on their problem. As they say, a lawyer with a briefcase can earn more money than a robber with his gun. Knowledge has such immense power that can turn a poor to rich provided he devoted himself to hard work. Nehru, Gandhi, Ambedkar all were lawyers. Well, earlier there was less competition in the field of law, but with the modernisation, the competition has increased. Thousands of graduates pass every year, and they are allowed to practice in any court throughout the territory of India.
Entry into the legal profession is quite easy. All you have to do is to complete your bachelor's degree in law, i.e., LLB (Legum Baccalaureus). This degree can be either of 3 or 5 years. Many colleges are providing LLB courses, and such universities conduct entrance test and interviews for admissions. However, there are some really good colleges which are in high demand and getting admission into it and clearing its entrance test is not an easy job.
Well, law course is one which provides you with the key to the profession but doesn't teach you how to unlock the path of success. It is up to you to use it in the right way. In other words, you will learn the laws, but the college doesn't teach you how to apply them in the real world. It is your practical experience which will teach you the proper use of it.
