Studying law is an emerging field amongst the various interests of students, it is yet another thing about which many of us aren’t aware of. Though today we will talk about everything you need to know, about law, as a student, that is purely inclusive of students from science stream and the ones who belong to other streams as well, and by the end of this discussion, we will shortly conclude that what sort of beneficiary you can become by opting such a vast field of opportunities.
1. Law as a career
At the time when everybody is going for either engineering or for medical, choosing law, indeed sounds quite a bit surprising. As many of us will directly come to the conclusion that, it is not fit for the market. Here is what the problem is, we choose career paths according to our so-called psychological market observation of market requirements, which is full of flaws because in that case, you don’t choose your market, the market today chooses you, which again forces you to do things out of the scopes of your passion. So, here is the thing, studying law is a thing currently holding up more than 75% of the employment market in the U.S alone, according to a study by the University of Pennsylvania. That concludes the very fact that for the one’s liking this field, there is nothing and no one stopping them.
2. What should you do?
“Law” is one of the most fundamental parts of our constitution. And law education is the only legal education in India that students can pursue and those who manage to clear this degree are designated with the post of a “Lawyer”. There are a few options that you can opt after your 12th. They are enlisted below –
a> Bachelor of Laws (LL.B.)
This is amongst the most commonly chosen courses in law, that provides you a bachelor’s degree enrolment in India and its duration is of 3 years.
b> Integrated undergraduate degrees – B.A. LL.B., B.Sc. LL.B., BBA LLB, B. Com LL. B – 5 years
If you want to take up the integrated course, then you can get admission to the 5-year integrated program after the completion of 10+2 exams.
3. How to go for it?
Students looking for a career path in this field have to appear in CLAT. CLAT stands for the common law admission test. This allows you to take admission to NLU’s (National law Universities) along with many other institutions. BCI (Bar Council of India) offers a “Certificate of Practice” to candidates once they complete LL.B. For practicing in the profession of law and get a certificate, it is compulsory for applicants to qualify the All India Bar Examination (AIBE).
4. The syllabus
The Consortium of the National Law Universities (NLUs) has mentioned the syllabus for the Common Law Admission Test (CLAT). The syllabus mainly consists of 12th based questions, more or less. Exam committee has prescribed and confirmed some basics in the exam pattern, they also described the following features about the syllabus of upcoming examination:
Subjects - The question paper will be based on the English language, Quantitative Techniques, Current Affairs including General Knowledge, Legal Reasoning and Logical Reasoning
It is delightful to note here that, the user doesn’t have to wander for the books to muster up for the exams, as Oswaal’s CLAT study materials are already the best available resource. Specially Oswaal’s CLAT sample papers are blended with class 12th fundamentalist syllabus, which students will find easy to have their grip on and run through an easy flow of preparations.
5. Level of questions
The different levels of CLAT question paper will be in accordance with the regular CLAT exam patterns, that consists of the following ingredient: -
Alas!! to the latest launches of Oswaal’s CLAT preparation books, that are loaded with CLAT sample papers and question banks, making things more dilute as this field is something which the students find themselves “not so friendly with.”
