Law Entrance Exams after 12th

Hi, friends!
The Big Bull is here again at your service to solve the mystery of finding out the most important law entrance exams you just can’t miss out on! In the past few years, Law has become a career option for many students like you! It isn’t just about mundane courtroom proceedings, big black robes and yelling ‘tariq par tariq’ like Sunny Deol during the proceedings. Today, law is about corporate culture, associations with top tier law firms, having your own law firm, judicial services, teaching, practicing law, etc.
Given the ‘n’ number of colleges in India offering the five year integrated course in law, the question which pops up is how to identify colleges which will benefit you the most. Can you pursue law from any college/university without it affecting or limiting your opportunities? Are all the institutions almost on the same lines and you’re your own curator? Can an institution play an important role in polishing your skills and bringing out the best in you? Do placements matter?
Well, the answer is no, no, yes and yes.
The institution you choose to pursue law will play the most important role in determining you success rate in the field of law. An ace university/college will provide you with the most holistic environment essential for improving, learning and competing with the best in this field. The curriculum, exchange programs with foreign universities, the crowd, the opportunities, the exposure that you’ll get will be unmatched in a sought after law college/university. Giving a small example, Gujarat National Law University, every year, organizes an International Moot in which law students from all over the world participate including USA and UK. Imagine how enlightening it will be to compete with those students, to get a chance to talk to them and discuss the law of their country, something that will broaden your horizon and give you an edge over others.
So, friends whether judiciary is your dream or the high-end life of a corporate lawyer for now, always aim for the best because you never know when you end up changing your plans. And anyway, what’s the harm in having all the opportunities open for you?
So, here’s a list of all the top law colleges and their entrance exams for your guidance.
