Law - requirements, demand and the upcoming field of copyright and corporate law.

I am currently studying in Class XII and want to become a lawyer. I know about LL.B. What are the requirements for this course? Is there a sufficient demand for law professionals in India. Also I have heard that copyright law and corporate law are the two upcoming areas in law. Can you tell me about these specializations? What kind of remuneration can I expect to earn as a fresher after completing my LL.B.?

You are eligible to take up LLB if you have secured 50% marks in your 10+2. You should also clear the CLAT examination. If you complete the first three years of this course, you will be awarded with the bachelor's degree (Law). If you complete the five years, you will be awarded with BA.LL.B.

A number of legal issues are coming up in the societal as well as professional spheres. Today, there is a huge demand for lawyers and other legal jobs in India. The criminal lawyers are highest in demand in India. With an increase in the number of companies, hiring of law professionals is widely expanding.

Companies look for lawyers who can work not only out of India but also from their offices abroad like in the US, the UK, Singapore, etc.

Graduates with an international degree can get placed at business firms, management teams, politics, banking, government bodies, human right agencies, etc.

Copy right and Corporate law

There are two upcoming specializations – Copyright Law and Corporate Law. They can provide students with great career opportunities.

Copyright law falls under the Intellectual Property Rights. It protects the rights of the author, creator, sound recorder and other translations.
You can make a great career in this field by registering a copyright at the copyright office. A number of online courses are offered by the WIPO (World Intellectual Property Organization). A candidate can also take up a diploma course in IPR, from law colleges which teach IPR as a module. Students who have completed their LL.B. and a diploma in IPR can work as litigators or work with the corporates.

Corporate laws affect companies, corporations and the consumers as well. Corporate law has a wide popularity in India. A student has to pursue LL.B. and then specialize in civil law to take up corporate law as a career. A corporate lawyer should have a good knowledge of the company laws and regulations. He/She should have an in-depth idea about criminal law, the ability to understand all kinds of law and should also have good effective communication skills.

Doing an internship for six months is an advantage as it would increase your chances to earn more. A copyright lawyer can earn up to Rs. 20,000 per month whereas a corporate lawyer can earn up to Rs. 25,000 per month. The remuneration grows with your experience.
