Law as a career option is one of the most respected choices for students after they complete their 12th standard. The Indian legal system is complex, nuanced, and always evolving. To become a successful lawyer, one needs to have some basic qualities—a discerning mind, good written and oral communication skills, a logical outlook, the ability to make the right judgement, the skill to think spontaneously, analytical, critical and creative bent of mind, patience and determination. This is not all. Training from a top-notch law college that helps you sharpen all the above-mentioned skills plays a very crucial role in making successful lawyers. Make sure you enrol in a college or university that will help you translate what you have learnt in theory into practice effectively.
