Dear Team, I am in my 3rd year of integrated 5 years law course. I was pondering over the options to make a successful career in law. I understand, we have Lower Judiciary, upper judiciary, PSU, Banks and Advocacy with a selection grade to Judiciary. The issue: Options: 1) Judiciary: Lower Judiciary - Given the trend, the selection for upper Judiciary is quite negligible and take a considerable amount of years of your life. 2) Upper Judiciary: India does not have process of selection to Additional Session Judge (ADJ) without completing 7 years of Advocacy to be eligible for ADJ. nor any National level Judiciary exam for such selection after passing from law school. 3) PSU: A mundane process of work like a corporate and not sure, how challenging or exciting as a career option. Just a time scale career stability. 4) Banks: Apart from RBI, which has another level of selection process - meaning quite an extent of separate study from present law course and is a rated option, the other banks law officer is again mundane as in PSU's. 5) Advocacy is something which 1st generation lawyers might need a best of mentors to make to selection grade of Judiciary. 6) Indian Laws firms and Magic circle : May pl guide on the process of internship in magic circle law firms and is it a good to have internship outside of India or better to have in Indian Law Firms. Given the above, what’s the best career move and options as this is one of the profession, wherein name and fame comes later in life, however adding a right career path just adds catalyst, then having instability in your prime years of life. Regards NS.

sir, my son is LLM in international law from Brussels . But find difficult placement in india as well outside. being father in concern i m worried . would like to know if law career is wrong choice to get settle .
Ans: I understand your concerns about your son's career prospects in international law. It's natural for parents to worry about their child's future, especially when it comes to career choices. International law is a highly specialized field that can offer rewarding opportunities, but like any profession, success can depend on various factors.

Here are a few considerations to keep in mind:

Specialization and Niche Expertise: International law is a complex and competitive field. Having a specialized skill set or focusing on a niche area within international law can make your son stand out. Whether it's human rights, trade law, environmental law, or something else, finding a unique area of expertise can improve his prospects.

Networking and Internships: Connections within the legal community are invaluable. Encourage your son to attend conferences, workshops, and seminars related to international law. Internships, whether paid or unpaid, can also provide him with practical experience and valuable contacts.

Location Flexibility: International law often involves working with governments, NGOs, multinational corporations, and international organizations. Being open to working in different geographical locations can increase his chances of finding suitable opportunities.

Further Education: Depending on his specific interests, pursuing further education such as a Ph.D. or specialized postgraduate courses might enhance his qualifications and marketability.

Adaptability and Multilingualism: International law often requires working with diverse cultures and languages. Proficiency in multiple languages and an ability to adapt to different legal systems can be advantageous.

Consult Career Advisors: Many universities and professional organizations offer career counseling services. Encourage your son to utilize these resources to explore different avenues and receive guidance on how to navigate the job market effectively.

Online Presence: Maintaining a professional online presence, such as a LinkedIn profile, can help showcase his skills and accomplishments to potential employers.

Persistence and Patience: The job search process can be challenging, especially in specialized fields. Encourage your son to remain persistent, patient, and open to different opportunities that might arise.

Remember that success in any career is a combination of individual effort, timing, and external factors. While the journey might be challenging, a career in international law can indeed be fulfilling and impactful. It's essential to support your son's aspirations while providing guidance and realistic expectations.

Regards,
Abhishek Shah
