The legal profession in India is looked upon with a degree of reverence because lawyers are considered the upholders of the Constitution and guardians of a venerable yet modernized legal system. Broadly classified, the law in India is categorized into these specific areas: civil, criminal, tax, constitutional, real estate, international, patent/copyright, labor, and family law.

India's diversity and multicultural ethos have ensured that the common law, modeled on the English common law system, is complemented by personal law codes applying to religious groups (Hindus, Muslims, and Christians). The highest court in India is the Supreme Court which comprises 30 associate justices and one chief justice. The Supreme Court hears cases that have emerged unresolved from the lower courts.

Studying Law in India

The Bar Council of India is the regulatory body overseeing law degree requirements with provisions for students to enroll in one of two kinds of graduate courses: three years of study following graduation from an undergraduate law program (bachelor degree and master's degree) or five years of integrated course study that eventually earns the student a degree "with honors" and a prestigious degree in law.

as a lawyer, you have a civic duty to volunteer your expertise
The Indian judiciary system is one of the most robust and biggest across any democracy in the world.

The Bar Council of India sets the norms for recognizing those law schools and universities qualified to award law degrees. Graduates of legal programs offered by recognized higher education institutions are allowed to register as a Bar Council advocate while law graduates already registered with the Bar Council can practice in any Indian court of law.

Tuition Fees

The fees charged by public law education institutes and universities in India are substantially less than private law schools in India. Graduate law students often work part-time in law firms to gain experience in their field of study.

A Career in Law

Job opportunities in the government law sector include law officer, deputy legal advisor, assistant advisor, or legal advisor.
