Legal Education in India

In India, you can go through Legal education in two ways. The traditional Way is going through a 3 or 4 year Graduation program after 12th and then enrolling oneself with LL.B. program which is typically a three year program. The newer way is to pursue a 5 year integrated law program directly after 12th.
In the 3 year LL.B. Program one goes for studying 28 subjects in law wherein a 5 year program student studies 52 different subjects in law along with getting opportunity to do multiple internships during the 5 year legal study period.
Law has been one of the most respected professions in India and worldwide since centuries. In litigant societies like the US and other western countries, legal career is one of the most sought after careers and only the brightest minds get admission in the top law schools. This trend is fast catching up in India too and law career options are opening up fast. Legal education in India has undergone a sea change since the pre and post-independence decades when brilliant Indian student used to go to the US and the UK to pursue legal education. The establishment of the first National Law School in Bangalore (NLSIU) has given a tremendous impetus to the legal education in India. Since then, many National Law Schools have come up. Also there has been a monumental increase in the number of private Institutes/Universities offering 5 year Law programmes.
