Education – What After PUC/Class 12 – Law Colleges in India

Law Colleges in India

It is no news that the most sought after educational choices in India boil down to the engineering and medical colleges as they offer a greater chance of direct employability. Of late, the Engineering Colleges are in a much higher demand and the number of Colleges too have propelled exponentially to meet the demand. It is great for a country looking at capitalism and opening its doors to new business ventures.

The beauty of growth in any country is that the allied services also grow adequately. The industrial growth combined with initiatives such as Make in India and the tax breaks offered have provided greater options for employment as opposed to the situation about 10 years ago. No matter what education you possess now, it is not that hard to secure a job related to your field. The hope is that someday soon, all the professions will be equally compensated without much of a bias.

And I guess those days are not too far. And as we extend the breadth of professional services in the country, one of the most important and relevant ones would be the legal aspects. Whether it is a common civilian or a criminal or a company setting up its base in India, the legal aspects can only be ignored at a huge cost. The demand for some professions like Doctors, Lawyers, Consultants will perhaps never reduce considering the adaptability of these professions to solve the common challenges we all face on a regular basis. And today as we throw some light on the choices for a career in law in India, we look at the colleges which are offering the best options for a degree in the field of law.

A recent post by India Today ranks National Law school as the top university for students. A considerable number of supreme court and high court judges trace their roots back to this esteemed college in the country. There is no dearth for law Colleges in India – In fact Wikipedia provides a listing of close to 100 Colleges to choose from based on their geographical positioning. From the listing of Colleges, we can identify that Delhi, Kerala, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu and Karnataka showcase a good number of Colleges with multiple options.

Interestingly Kerala and Tamil Nadu sport a larger number of government or government aided Colleges where the fees tend to be lesser. Delhi and Mumbai have a greater number of private Colleges which makes it more competitive. It also means a greater exposure to competition and companies if you are looking at vocational training in the job. A few of these Colleges are affiliated in the same campus as the MBA Colleges which makes the exposure diverse and well connected. Law Colleges in Delhi can provide a deeper exposure to the political and civilian aspects of law making whereas the Law Colleges in Mumbai can give a better business exposure considering the requirements in that geography.

Well, that being said doesn’t remove the focus from the rest of the law Colleges from the country. If you are considering a career in law, we would strongly recommend going through the ranking list of the Colleges, the employability records, alumni base, international exposure which can make your choice for masters and professional windows wider.
