Peter Drucker, once said, “Today knowledge has power. It controls access to opportunity and advancement.” Undoubtedly, pursuing a career in legal profession can be intellectually challenging, personally fulfilling and financially rewarding. For wholesome understanding of the societal norms and human behavior, legal education helps a lot. The way legal education redefines and gives a multi-dimensional outlook towards the challenging scenarios is really commendable. It certainly gives you an edge over others by enhancing your analytical skills and critical reasoning. The knowledge gained in the field of law includes understanding of basic principles, concepts and procedure used in the legal parlance but at the same time it teaches how to utilize the said intellectual resources in real time. To our limited knowledge, we often typecast the legal profession having been limited to court room practice that too only in civil, criminal, land, taxation and corporate field, but in the recent years many new options have mushroomed like tech-laws, intellectual property laws, international humanitarian law, energy laws, space law, media laws and yes! Even sports law. Now the aspirants actually have freedom to opt for any branch of their personal interest. For instance, in the legal field one may pursue career as a judge, Law Officer, Public Prosecutor, Attorney General, Law Minister, Law Academia, Mediator, Arbitrator etc. Not only this, recently many new career options have emerged such as, Law Blogger, Legal Journalist, Law Researcher, Securitization and Asset Reconstruction Consultant and Judge Advocate General. With respect to monetary rewards, need no more to say, that even the Forbes mentions the legal profession in the Top 10 highest paid/rewarding jobs in the world. In terms of social recognition, it would not be untrue to say that the people in legal profession enjoy a privileged position in the society which is derived from the nobility of this profession. Apart from the personality development, this profession gives ample opportunity to work for the betterment of the society. In the words of Tom Brokaw, “You are educated. Your certification is in your degree. You may think of it as the ticket to the good life. Let me ask you to think of an alternative. Think of it as your ticket to change the world.” Therefore, the people in this profession can effectively fight for the rights of the underprivileged or the deprived section of the society because of the better understanding of the subject and issues involved than the other individuals of the society.
