There is generally no such thing as specialisation in a Bachelor of Legislative Law programme. That being said, the candidate has the flexibility to pick some subject combinations which help them to specialize in certain subjects in their LLM degree.
At the postgraduate level, the candidate can do specialization in a chosen subject, which may be:
- Constitutional Law.
- Labour Law.
- Family Law
- Intellectual Property Law
- Taxation Law
- Corporate Law and Governance (including International Business)
- Criminal Law
- Environmental Law
- Human Rights
- Insurance Laws
Scope of LLB
Many candidates decide to do LLB after graduation because it is considered a safe career option. If the candidate completes LLB, he or she may go on to become advocates and work in legal cases. The LLB degree holder has the option of working both as a private lawyer or work for the government. To work in the government sector, the candidate generally needs to qualify in an entrance exam conducted by the Public Service Commission.
Then some may also decide to go for higher studies and pursue LLM and even PhD. At the master's level, one may opt for specialisation, which can give more muscle to one’s resume and job prospects. Again, some may decide to become teachers, a profession which is getting more attention in recent times.
Careers Opportunities after LLB
There is no limit as to what level one can reach after completing an LLB degree. Because if we look at social personalities dominating the public, starting from the late Arun Jaitley and Ram Jethmalani, to present luminaries like Harish Salve and Aryama Sundaram, to the former Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi, the sky's the limit.
After completing the LLB degree, one may work in a variety of roles - corporate lawyer, judge,
legal advisor, legal manager.
How far one goes, however, depends on factors like skills levels, profession chosen, and experience, etc.
Some individuals again become social activists and fight for the legal rights of marginal sections of society. The role can be unglamorous and require a lot of sacrifices and standing up to powerful people, but the job satisfaction can be immense.
