Law as a career option after 12th
Today 'Law' is one of the best career options
after 12th, if we consider the emergence of National Law Schools, their world
class education and their impressive national and international campus
placements which are growing even more attractive with each passing year. While
the traditional options of joining legal practice or the judiciary as
solicitors and advocates or as judges remain open, options like joining the
civil services, academics and working as law officers in the government
departments and public sector and private sector undertakings are also
available to the law graduates.
