Practical Aspects :
Considering the huge amount of pending cases in courts across the country there arises the need for more pro-active lawyers who would take the initiative to see the delivery of justice in all the courts. The Law is constantly evolving with the emergence of new areas such as International Law, Intellectual Property Law, Environmental Law, Corporate Law, Arbitration and Mediation, Media Law, Human Rights Law, Cyber Law, Taxation and several other fields which provide for a wide array of opportunities in various fields depending on individual interests. One can choose to specialize in any of these areas or practice in the broad areas of civil law and criminal law. The emergence of socio-legal issues and upsurge in the number of criminals and crimes require the resolution of law, therefore, lawyers prove to be indispensable today.High flying careers with rising amounts in salaries are one of the few incentives which make this career attractive and profitable. Today, the average salary of a National Firm is around Rs. 10 Lakhs p.a, Rs. 27 Lakhs p.a. for an International Firm and Rs. 7 Lakhs p.a. for a Corporate in India. Knowledge and expertise in Law is a long term investment as the need for Law and the requirement of lawyers will always continue and increase with development levels of the country.
