Help others fight for their rights. Become a lawyer
In this section, we will talk about careers which aren’t much sought-after but are worth pursuing. Our focus, this time, is on Law.
CAREER FOCUS: Lawyer
Perhaps, one of the most glamourised professions of the silver screen. But the profession involves tremendous hardwork, rigorous studies not only during college years but also throughout the working years.
A lawyer has various career options. Depending on your interest, you can specialise in any of the following:
- international laws
- intellectual property, etc.
- General knowledge
- Analytical ability
- Attention to detail
- Logical reasoning
- Effective communication/persuasiveness
Job Prospects & Qualifications Required:
- Practice Law in Courts (you can begin as an intern or assist a senior advocate in a legal firm and then start independent practice; or work as a public prosecutor with government)
- Corporate Management: Big corporate houses have a separate legal department to address legal issues (like taxation policies, patent rights, labour laws, etc.) for smooth functioning of the organisation.
Qualifications: LLB (specialisation in corporate laws, intellectual property laws, etc).
- Academics: If you love teaching, there is no dearth of colleges now as many private institutions and universities are offering courses in law.
Qualifications: LLB followed by LLM with specialisation in any branch of law. A doctoral degree (PhD) is always preferable in this profession.
