Why Should I Choose Law?
Frequently students are confused as to why they should choose law. Law is a growing and dynamic field. The Legal Field is vast in its outreach. Unlike other professional courses, there are several diametrically different careers that students can pursue after completing their education in Law. Apart from the conventional Litigation, Judiciary and Corporate fields, legal education is required for a career in a lot of fields like activism, politics, academics, sports law, space law, media law etc.
