Best law colleges in India

Famous Urdu poet Akbar Allahabadi, who studied law and ended up being a Sessions Judge in Allahabad High Court, wrote this couplet about dishonest lawyers:

‘’The day a lawyer was born, Satan said with joy

God has made me today, the father of a boy.’’

That said, there is no profession in the world where there is not a single dishonest professional. Same is the case with law. At the same time, some of the greatest minds and paradigms of honesty like Mahatma Gandhi and Nelson Mandela had earned law degrees and practiced law with dignity.

From an Adviser to a Lawyer

If you’re capable of resolving people’s disputes or neighbors consult you for your valuable pieces of advice, then the law degree is calling you! Giving advice on legal matters is a lifelong duty of a lawyer. For those who don’t want to be a practicing lawyer or a litigator, they can get into the judiciary or get hired by a corporate house as a corporate lawyer.

From a Social Worker to a Lawyer

People who are into social welfare and upliftment of society, they can enhance their profile by pursuing law courses. There are always other options like becoming a law officer at a bank, or the noblest option of becoming a law professor.
