 Why study law and why go for CLAT Law is considered one of the most promising and lucrative careers in our country today. Although CLAT has come into existence from 2008 but from before that and till now more and more people are planning to study law. The best part about law as a career option is that the market demand and supply ratio is favorable and you'll not only get a  job but be spoilt for choice. The various avenues post law are as follows:
  • Law clerk- You are a law clerk when you are interning with a judge. The maximum duration of this internship is one or two years and is considered an option of great repute, opens up a plethora of other options for you since it looks brilliant on the resume.
  • Litigation- Whether you are working with a lawyer in the district court, HC or the Supreme court the work is considered of great repute and your learning curve will be very high. After an experience of 4-5 years you should be able to break away from the senior  and start your own practice
  • Law firms- Find out what interests you. In corporate it could be project finance, capital markets, mergers, arbitration, taxation and other subjects and in litigation it could be family law, criminal law and others
  • Corporate Houses- You can become an in house counsel for a big corporate house. These groups might need you to know anything from taxation to environmental laws.
  • Judicial services- You could sit for state wise judicial service exams and once you clear you will be a judicial magistrate first class. Or you could gain litigation experience for a decade then you qualify to become a HC judge. Anyone who has been a judge in the HC for five years or a counsel in the SC for ten years can become a SC judge. It is always good to have a high aim in life and hence law.
  • Advocate on record
The massively popular exam among the best brains in the legal field requires you to practice for four years in a court and undergo a training with a AOR for one year before you can apply. The exam is your gateway into the elite section of lawyers who can start their own law firms. Even without being an AOR lawyers can start their own law firms once they have a good client base
  • LPOs
LPO also means decent amount of money and the job is really simple. I have seen people start their own LPO as well.
  • Academician
You could start teaching in a law school or in a law preparation coaching institute
  • Exams
Even IAS exams are easier when one has law subjects.
