Legal Job In India- How Lucrative Is It?
Law has become one of the most lucrative careers in India; as it is a high paying job.
The course of action required to study law is to directly peruse a law degree after the 12th which will be a Bachelors of Legal Science (LLB). After completing 3 years of the course the degree given in BLS and after the fifth year you are awarded with a LLB; this course is offered by several collages.
There are many career opportunities after studying law; apart from practicing law graduates now have a whole range of options.
· Corporate Council: Joining an industry of company as a law officer.

· Editor of Newspaper of Media Houses – Yes, media houses require people who are knowledgeable about law and if you have a writing flair with a legal background, you might just bad yourself the job of an editor.
The National Law Universities (NLUs) were created as a back bone to the Indian Judicial system to provide quality lawyers and to make law a leading career in the country. Yet the opposite is seen today. As corporate Laws have become more lucrative students are moving towards jobs in the corporate sector.
When one owns a business contracts become a part of it. In today’s world everything needs to be documented with a legal touch. With companies taking patenting and trade mark seriously the post of corporate officers is the new favourite.
The day to day scenario of most companies is contract or joint venture based; licensing, securities and mergers have to be handled by the law officer and are hired through campus recruitment. For senior positions the companies recruit lawyers with experience as they understand the problems better and are team friendly. This is considered on the most lucrative positions when compared to other options.
Even when it is important for lawyers to be a part of the corporate sector the NLU’s need to work towards enlightening the students about how important it is to work for the Indian Judicial System and other law and order initiated firms.
