The Legal Profession. Is it worth It?

The Legal Profession. Is it worth It?

Lawyer Baby

The oldest profession in the world ( well almost!!)  is now home to some very young members.

Since the advent of the Indian Governments move to create special National Law University ( there are 14 of them now)  and the encouragement of the Bar Council we have seen in the last 10 years a spurt in more young students taking up Law as a Career. Last year nearly 27000 – 12th Std plus students took the CLAT exam to get entry to the 1000 odd seats in the 14 National Law Universities.

The Maximum entry age at 20 years means that we have young legal eagles out like bumble bees in the Courts and other places taking up cudgels in the name of Law. All at the age of 25 or so after an exciting foray from Law Classrooms for 5 YEARS , all armed with dual degrees and fire in their hearts.Many pick up causes for NGOs, Underprivileged and many work for the best Law firms in India and Abroad. Some are directly taken up by corporates – Indian and Abroad.

Time to make money.

Where do they proceed after they Graduate? It is surprising to note that the quality and level of these young bright sparks are so good that 10 of them were chosen as Aditya Birla Scholars ( on par with Post Graduates from IIT and IIMs).  5 of them every year go for their Masters in Law as Rhodes Scholars to the Oxford School of Law. Many start their careers with Law firms at Path breaking pay scales with high pay scales and responsibility.

What is interesting about  these Law Schools?

Among the many things that touch the raw nerves of these young students is the very design and method of teaching. There are MOOT courts galore, debates, internships with Law firms and courts plus Practical and large value addition by top Legal luminaries coming for Class. Coupled with the fact that it is a 100% residential course enables these students to remain in touch with their work and colleagues full time and a high sense of competition ensues.

I see hope in these young minds to clean up the legal systems with their far reaching thoughts and a brighter future for young India.

Come on guys it is upto you. The baton is now in your strong young hands.

The Leit Motif of Career Jumps.

Sometimes I need to explain!!

So here goes. The meaning of the word is Leit Motif--whose meaning is the guiding theme or the main underlying idea of the title I have chosen for this new blogging adventure. The undercurrent that I want to  swim through this is by giving young readers fresh thinking, new ideas, immense motivation and tips on right Career Moves.

Will this take me up, or down or across. Will I succeed or fail if I chose this Career or that.  Will I eventually come out tops or sink to the bottom. Is this the right decision for my long term goals or not? Everyone seeking a career choice comes across these monstrosities often enough. Sometimes even in mid-course. What to do?

Career Jumps is created with the thought of providing Career thoughts, Career ideas, Good Careers and all sorts of Professional ideas for young people on the go. It is going to have as its Leit Motif about how to rise to the top in ones Career by making wise and well informed Career choices. It will highlight new Career options and how to achieve them.

It is my sincere hope that young minds will use this blog to get a better flight to their flourishing dreams and enable the matter to be used as a Springboard from which a young person will emerge more stronger and purposefully driven.
