Hello Sir, My Son recently cleared SSC exam with 87.8%. He wants to pursue LAW please guide us for the same along with the other professional courses. regards
Ans: Hi Mrunal, Congratulations to your son on securing 87.8%. If he's so keen on pursuing LAW, then he must do thorough research before taking a call. Law is a diverse field with various specializations available - like criminal law, corporate law, family law, or environmental law. It's important that he identifies his interest first.

Next important step would be identifying the right programs that will get him the maximum career benefits. He could opt for a 3-year LL.B. program after completing his undergraduate degree in any discipline or a 5-year integrated LL.B. program which can be pursued directly after 12th. For admission to prestigious law schools offering integrated LL.B. programs, your son may need to appear for law entrance exams like CLAT (Common Law Admission Test), AILET (All India Law Entrance Test), LSAT (Law School Admission Test), etc. Make sure to stay updated about the exam dates, eligibility criteria, and application processes.

It's important to also compare different law schools based on their faculty, infrastructure, placement records, and specializations offered to be able to make an informed career choice. Today we have a range of online and blended programs available that comes with stronger hands-on element and are at par with offline /offer similar university accreditations. Strong writing skills, internships for gaining practical experience and registering for the BCI after course completion to practice law in the country, are important.

Also, before you suggest alternate career options to him, it's important to check about his interests and passions - Encourage open discussions about his career aspirations, and consider seeking guidance from career coaches or professionals in the fields he is considering.
